North Star Lodge No. 8, F & AM held their annual Installation of Officers Ceremony on Sunday February 10, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. This was preceded by a chicken pot pie luncheon supplied by the members of Olive Branch No. 1 Order of the Eastern Star.
Worshipful Master Jeremy W. Allin is serving his second year in that capacity. The other Officers moved up one station with the exception of Brother Robert Herman who is remaining as Chaplain. Brother Mark Blodgett assumed the duties of the West and Brother Robert Paradis in the South. Recent members Brother Philip Beiner is the new Senior Deacon, Brother Wesley Cookson in the new Junior Deacon with one of our newest Members, Brother Derek Myers as Senior Steward.
Yours truly has been appointed as the first Master of Ceremonies of the Lodge in a number of years, a position I have never had the privilege of doing previously. It will be my job to act as Director of the Work when requested, and to assist the Master with any other duties he may need. I hope this will not only give us an opportunity to properly train the new Officers, but give us uniformity in performance.
Pictured are most of the Officers who were installed on the occasion.
Dennis A. Sheridan, Past Master
