Recent EVENTS

Special Guests/Speakers: It is always an honor anytime someone outside of the fraternity stops by to visit and talk. Although there are many who stop by from time to time, a special thanks should go out to various officials who take time out of their busy schedules to come by and talk with us. Another special thanks should go out to the Decatur City Police and Fire Departments, as well as the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department. With all that these Departments do to protect and serve us all, they are always welcome. We were honored to have Mrs. Yvonne Krenkle, Director of Decatur Beautification Department, and Mr. Phil Wirey, noted local historian, as our guest speakers in July 2012.
Autism Awareness - Monday, February 23, 2015 - We were delighted to have as our guest speaker Ellen Casale. Please CLICK HERE to be re-directed to YouTube for  video of her awesome presentation. 

Charitable Contributions: The plight of Twin Decatur High students Stephen and Jonathan Small who were orphaned at the age of 10 and now live alone after both their mom and stepfather died touched our hearts.
The members of Rising Sun Lodge No. 29 responded with a free-will donation to help the young men who each have a part-time job and are on schedule to graduate in May 2015.

Grand Lodge Cornerstone Laying Ceremony & Lodge Dedication Ceremony:
On May 16, 2015 our lodge, The Masonic Building, was the site of a Grand Lodge Cornerstone Laying Ceremony and Lodge Dedication Ceremony.

Most Worshipful Past Grand Master Gene Anderton, Grand Orator, pro tem, addressed the attendees with a most impressive articulation in both ceremonies.
