The lodges presented the Entered Apprentice on August 21 for two candidates. It was great being able to do most of the work ourselves with a little help from our brothers from Pueblo. Welcome to new brothers: Shawn Brewer and Joe Pachak.
The booth at the Arkansas Valley Fair was a huge success. We were able to complete 177 id's on local children. We started on August 11 and went through August 15. Thanks to all that worked on getting this project done. We have talked a little about doing this as an ongoing project and getting our own equipment. We will be discussing it at the September 2 meeting.

April 1 Lodge News

On April 1 the regular meeting of St. John's Lodge Number 75 was held at the lodge hall. Prior to the meeting a dinner was held at El Capitan restaurant. Following dinner the order of the Sword of Bunker Hill was put on by brethren from Pueblo for 12 brothers, 11 from the valley and one from Pueblo. A wonderful time was had by all and the degree work was enlightening.
