    Greetings all... Just stumbled upon this site and happy that I did. I plan to be active here and hopefully not be a pain... I/we are working to revive our small lodge and make it a big part of our small community like it once was.

    Welcome Brother. I know where your lodge is! I stopped by a few years ago when I was in Sparta. The lodge was closed, I hit it on the wrong date.
    Brother Jay, I attended your lodge a few years ago. I'm a National Shotgun coach and have spent a lot of time in Sparta. I attended diner and a Fellowcraft degree. I do remember your secretary was from Tennessee and had a Brother in our Jackson lodge. His name escapes me, but I have his card somewhere I believe he is 33°. I really enjoyed the fellowship and your lodge.

    I think it was. I wish I could find his card. I think Jackson TN would come up and do degree work in Centralia and your lodge would do the same. I hope Ray is well.

    If you happen to see him, please give him my regards. If I can't find his card, I'll send a letter to the lodge for him.

    Thanks,

    Matt
