All our brothers, friends and families give our congratulations to Carmel Lodge 421’s newest Master Mason – Mark Ambrey.
Also – a BIG thanks to the brethren from Center Lodge #23 for visiting and assisting in our Master Mason degree!
Marshall Matt (Hawkins) found the apron on Ebay. The family who owned it had had it left to them by an uncle who had passed and they did not know much about its importance. Before “throwing it out” they decided to put it on Ebay. After wearing it at a Master Mason Degree performed by Carmel 421, Matt sent the above photo to the family who were very happy the apron had value and a new home:
” “Matt—-Thank you SO much for taking the time to send me a picture of “Uncle John’s Apron”, once again being used and appreciated! The Masons meant a great deal to both my Uncle & my father, his 1/2 brother. I have had my Dads Masonic ring, watch fob & tie tac framed in a shadow box along with his parchment 32° certificate & Grand Master papers —my daughter & her husband treasure this picture! – Have a Wonderful Easter, Judy”
