A Word From the Master

Our 2018 Worshipful Master

I am most honored and humbled to be serving as Worshipful Master of Gardner lodge for 2018.  I sincerely thank the Brethren for entrusting me with the care of our wonderful lodge.  Serving in this role during this particular year is even moreso an honor to me as it marks our 150th year since chartered.  For those who know me personally know I hold a deep passion and respect for Masonic history and that passion started because of the research into the history of this very lodge.  I am very excited for the work to be done in 2018 and looking forward to working personally with each member of our officer line.  Gardner Masonic Lodge is one of the oldest organizations in the city of Gardner that remains active to this day.  We plan to make our name and efforts known once again. Our overall presence and level action in both the community and in our Fraternity will increase and be known by all. We started off the year already making history, being the first lodge under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Kansas A.F.&A.M. to be allowed by the Grand Master to live stream our public installation ceremony.  This is directly reflective of our spirit and drive to grow and move forward while still honoring and never forgetting our past. I very much look forward to this year and all that will come of it. Please follow us on social media as well as our website www.GardnerLodge65.org to keep up to date on our progress of these goals. I hope that you will join us in October for the re dedication and formal celebration of the 150th anniversary of Gardner Lodge.
