Masonry runs in the Puleo family and that was evident “over in Dover” for the installation of the Lodges 70th Master recently. The family history dates back to Grandfather Richard J. Puleo, Sr. who was the Potentate at Bektash Temple in the early 1990’s. This continued with Rick Puleo, Jr. who is a Past Master of Mt. Lebanon Lodge #32, in Laconia and concluded recently with the installation of Wor.
Vincent R. Puleo. (since the new Master is engaged, who knows when the next generation might be added)
WM “Vincent” Puleo had his Jewel and Charge given by Wor. “Dad” Puleo and witnessed by many friends and family in a packed Lodge of standing room only.
Assisting in the installation was MW C. Wayne Libby, Jr., RW’s William S. Sawyer, John F. Gordon, Michael V. Pettengill, and Worshipful’s Michael R. Steward, Donald S. Meserve, Richard J. Puleo, Jr. and Brothers John T. Pond, Jr. and John Moulton, Grand Organist from our neighboring state of Maine.
The Lodge is named after MW Moses Paul who was Grand Master in 1858 and 1859. During his term GM Paul instituted the office of Grand Lecturer and set the stage for the semi-annual GL Communications.
The first picture is with the new Master, his fiancé Rachel Clennon, his mom Ruth Puleo and Grandmom Priscilla Puleo.
The second picture shows that all new Masters need the Tile adjusted and the third is the Gavel given by WM Puleo’s fiancé and Wor. “Dad” Paleo.
And a good time was had by all.
