The event was held for Bro. Shane William Beddow, a member of St. Joseph Lodge #970, St. Joseph.  Right Worshipful Bro. Anthony Cracco, Deputy Grand Master was in attendance and raised Bro. Beddow.Every member of the cast for the degree was Past Master’s from the area. There were approximately 30 Masons in attendance.

Several members of St. Joseph Lodge are members and very active in the Boy Scouts, which was started by Masons.  The Scouting movement celebrated its 100 anniversary in July.

On behalf of St. Joseph Lodge #970, we want to thank everyone for coming out and participating or watching the degree and a special thank you to RWB Anthony Cracco, DGM, for making the trip to help us put on this degree.
