On Wednesday September 29th, Brother Joseph Breckons, III received the sublime degree of a Master Mason with his father Joseph Breckons, Sr., P.M. acting as guide. The degree was conferred by Brother Matthew A. Boice, P.M. Pictured l-r are Brothers Boice, Breckons, Sr., Breckons and Lodge Worshipful Master Eugene A. Kelley, P.M.

We welcome Brother Breckons as a full member of our lodge and having already memorized the EA and FC obligations in their entirety he shows promise to one day be sitting in the East repeating his father’s journey 31 years ago. Welcome to Sunset Lodge!

We look forward to Brother Breckons applying for and completing the requirements for the Master Builder Award offered by the Grand Lodge to newly made masons.
