This years past master degree was a great success with two past masters conferring from the east.  WB Ross Price conducted the first section of the Master Mason’s degree and WB Joe Henry presided over the second section.

We would like to congratulate our new brothers, Robert Pruett, Rocky Mathis and Leo Weisenhorn to the fraternity.

Long Creek Lodge Blood Drive

At last month’s supper, Kira Mulcahy, a representative from the American Red Cross came and spoke about the potential for a blood drive at the Long Creek Masonic Lodge.

Right now, we have April 9th (4pm – 830pm) on hold.

In order to ink that date into their calendar, we need to get at least 30 people to pledge to donate.

This meaning that given any unforeseen circumstances, you will be here on that date to donate blood.

We were able to round up about 10 people that night, but still need some additional support.

Spouses, children (16 y/o and older), neighbors, family members, etc are all invited to join, so if you think they might be willing, ask them and include their names as well!!

If you can donate, please e-mail us ( and we will be in touch with you.
