Saying Goodbye Is Hard To Do...

Last night the Brothers of Winter Haven Lodge No. 186 held their final Stated Communications at the Winter Haven Masonic Temple on Avenue A SE in Winter Haven. Due to the rising monthly costs of maintaining a large and mostly unused Masonic Temple the Brothers reluctantly voted to sell their beloved Masonic Temple which they have occupied for 60 years (1961-2021) and will in the interim meet at the Lake Alfred Masonic Temple until a new Masonic building can be found and purchased.

After the gavel fell and the Stated Communication was closed the lodge officers along with R:.W:. Anthony Pickren our District Deputy Grand Master posed for a final picture in the in East.
