    Above, The Odessa Masonic Lodge No. 955 held an Empty Chair Ceremony honoring departed Masonic brothers at the Widows Nite event. Bob Chamblin looks on as Michael Covington, right, ties the white apron on the black draped chair and explains its use. John Lumpkin, left, helps tie the apron and explains the evergreen that is placed on the chair.

    At right, District Deputy Grand Masters of District No. 82 are, from left to right, front row: G.C. Black, 2010; Bob Chamblin, 2009; Alan Walters, 2008; and Gene Justice, 2007.
