In early December, Mid-Century Lodge was able to close out the calendar year with one of the most exciting Masonic traditions. Brother Todd Strunk, after completing his Entered Apprentice and Fellowcraft degrees, was raised to the degree of Master Mason.
Each of the three degrees carries unique symbolism and moral teachings. The Master Mason degree teaches us to resist the forces of ignorance and injustice in the world. The newly minted Master Mason is charged to cement his ties to members of the fraternity and aid them whenever he can without injury to himself.
The Master Mason degree requires a lot of people, and many of our brothers at neighboring lodges put the lessons of this degree in practice by traveling to Mid-Century and helping us raise Bro. Strunk. The members of Mid-Century extend their heartfelt thanks to these visiting brethren and look forward to returning the favor in the future.
Above all, we look forward to the promising Masonic career of our new Master Mason. We congratulate Bro. Strunk on the zeal he has heretofore shown for the fraternity and we commit ourselves to his continued growth in the craft.
Congratulations Brother Strunk!
