We received the Grand Master’s Award at Grand
Lodge this year—one of only three lodges to get it.
Only the Masters of the lodges went before the
Grand Master so I want to thank the officers and
brothers of Horace Chase Lodge because “the intent
of the Grand Master’s Award program is not to be
sure that a Lodge reaches goals but that it takes part
in programs that lead to Lodge quality and Masonic
success” and our lodge certainly fits that description!
