Lodge announces winners
Centre Lodge No. 147 met Feb. 13 at the Marion Senior Center for their annual Past Masters’ Night banquet. Following the meal, Worshipful Master John Darting recognized Rosse Case as the oldest living past master of the lodge. Case joined the Masonic Lodge in 1952 and first became as Master in 1962.
Darting presented a check to Briana Hall, a senior at Marion High School, for winning the local Masonic Lodge 2012 School Essay Contest.
