Important Message From the Grand Master

Dear Brethren,

Not that we anticipate any terror issues or that we want to scare anyone, but we are putting out the following resources from several different agencies who are in charge of preventing terrorist attacks. Feel free to go over it or share it with whoever you wish. The Department of Homeland Security also suggests that every Organization, Business, Family or Building always have an Emergency Plan in force in case of emergencies.

An Unusual Installation
Date: 2/3/2016

A rather unusual installation was held at Mt. Nebo Lodge #76, in Carlinville on November 15, 2015. Three pair of fathers and their sons were installed as officers. Bro. Dean Wiese and his son, Robert Wiese were installed as Senior and Junior Wardens.

Also filling the slate were the Treasurer, Bro. Jim Johnson, who is the father of the Marshall, Bro. Andrew Johnson. The Junior Deacon, Tim Barber, will be answering knocks at the door from his father, Bro. Arthur Barber.

As unusual as the slate is, there was one other bit of irony. Worshipful Bro. Josh Bacon was conducted to the altar for his obligation by his father, Worshipful Bro. Kevin Bacon, who was the Installing Marshall.

Congratulations to all of the officers of Nebo Lodge. May the ensuing Masonic year be a successful one!
