Lodge of Sorrow 2021
Worshipful Master Joel Kardell ordered Secretary Roen to do a roll call of the workmen of the
Lodge. After roll call, it was noted that four Brothers from our Lodge have not answered to their
name. They have laid down their working tools of our ancient craft and have been summoned to
the Celestial Lodge above. No longer do they labor among us, guided by the three Great Lights
of Masonry. Their days are now illuminated by the far greater light, which we will all know.
Secretary Roen then reported the following:
