Despite the snow piling up outside the members and their ladies of Cheshire-Mt Vernon Lodge No. 23 gathered for their regular monthly dinner and Stated meeting on Saturday December 9th. All through the dining room there was great conversation as a delicious venison stew was enjoyed by all. During the meeting the new Master, Worshipful Brother David Haseman, gave a very informative presentation on astronomy, more particularly the big dipper and the North Star, and their importance to historical navigation in the northern hemisphere and Masonry.
The evening was capped off by Right Worshipful Brother Larry Sprague, Junior Grand Deacon, installing his son, Brother Timothy Sprague, into the office Junior Deacon. Tim is a Past State Master Councilor of NH DeMolay and was unable to be the Installation in November because of a DeMolay commitment.
