152nd Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Washington
I just returned from the investiture ceremony where RW Brother Gale Kenney was inducted into the Past Grand Masters Association of Washington. Gale is the newly elected Grand Master for the Grand Lodge and will be installed later this evening.
Beth and I had a wonderful time at this 152nd Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Washington. We reacquainted ourselves with many old friends and made many several new ones. MW Doug Tucker and his lady Glynis were very gracious hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality and good fellowship. Thanks to VW Brother Brian Hardy (Deputy District No. 4) for all of the courtesies and assistance extended to us.
At the close of the Grand Lodge session this afternoon, the following brethren were elected to lead the Grand Lodge of Washington for the coming term:
MW Gale H. Kenney, Grand Master
RW F. Santy Lascano, Deputy Grand Master
RW Michael L. Sanders, Senior Grand Warden
RW Dean W. Heinemann, Junior Grand Warden (pictured above)
RW David P. Owen, Grand Secretary
Thank you again, Doug and Glynis for a great Grand Lodge.
