Elmira Curry

Writer honored on birthday with dinner

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge ye shall be judged and with what measure ye mete it, shall be measured to you again. And why beholdeth thou the note that is in thy brother’s eye but considered not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew 7:1-3

Every year carries away some in our number. Somebody is gone that was here last year.

Happy New Year to everyone that is here so far. We give God the praise for all of our blessings.

Waterford Lodge #458 recently had its dedication and ribbon ceremony. On hand for the ceremony were members of Waterford Masonic Lodge #450, Sunrise Chapter #166 Order of Eastern Star, Miller’s Court #301, Heroines of Jericho and friends.

The occasion was done by Mrs. Queen Martin, ancient matron of Miller’s Court #301. The Litany was done by Bro. Levan Miller, worshipful master/ district lecturer. We are thankful to God for blessing us with this building.
