 In an earlier  summer St John's Lodge made a presentation to Right Worshipful Donald Pellington for his long standing dedication to the history of our Lodge and to Masonry in general. Don has continually collected many valuable books and documents on many aspects of our Craft. Because of his relocation to the mid section of our State he has donated all his collection to our Library making it a premier collection of Masonic information. In recognition of this we have named our library "The Donald Pellington Library", in his honor. Below are two photos during the presentation to Don. Shown from left to right are the Worshipful Master Robert Mortensen, R.W. Harold Buchanan, R.W. Walter Rieth, R. W. Donald Pellington and Brother Glenn Buchanan Also shown is a copy of the certificate taken from the Plaque which was struck commutating the event.

District Picnic


  This year our District Picnic had the best weather we have had in some time but our attendance was almost one half of previous years. It seems many other dates conflicted. We will look forward to next year for better attendance as many people work very hard in all the preparation for this event.
