Keystone Mark Master’s Lodge # 0 closed its inaugural year (16 months per year, right?) tonight with a gain of 43 companions, more than half of those were not Royal Arch masons when advanced to the Mark Master degree, and of that percentage, 95% have gone on to join all three local york bodies.

The companions enjoyed more than 50% attendance tonight as we elected and installed our officers for the ensuing year; including install the sitting Grand Master of Utah as our Right Worshipful Master; meaning he gets to be right again, which will no doubt open itself to many a masonic joke.

Peace, harmony and cigars capped off the evening’s festivities.
