Annual EVENTS

Widows Luncheon: Wednesday, May 2, Rising Sun #29 hosted a special luncheon for the widows of our fallen Brothers. This is an annual event, usually in early May, we prepare in our Tom L. Collins Kitchen and serve in our George F. Mills Dining Hall. The luncheon is especially catered to the honor and memory of their husbands who have passed.

Grand Masters Dinner & Reception: Rising Sun #29 hosts an annual Grand Masters Dinner to introduce the newly installed Grand Lodge Officers (please see PHOTOS page). Our January 2012 Grand Masters Dinner & Reception was a very notable evening for us as one of our own, Brother John Strickling, was introduced as the newly elected Right Worshipful Junior Grand Warden. This is the first time a Rising Sun Lodge #29 member has advanced to the Grand Lodge line. Decatur Mayor, Don Stanford, presented the Key to The City to Most Worshipful Grand Master, Brother Sterling Hughes.
