Inspection Report

The inspection was outstanding.

The morning started with a delicious breakfast enjoyed by 61 masons and prepared and served by Bros. Roger Thornbury, Earl Arnett and Phillip Brandley.

The opening was perfect and introductions went smoothly. The officers conducted an outstanding FC Degree. The FC lecture by W.B. Douglas Baker was, as usual, the best anyone has ever heard. Our Junior Warden Austin Pearson gave the Charge.

After the meeting, many visiting brothers received our famous “Yellow Dog Degree.” It was a great day for Masonry and a proud day for being a member of New Carlisle Lodge.

We had 51 visitors and 26 New Carlisle 100 members (11 Past Masters) for a total of 77.
