Winter Haven Lodge No. 186 Stated Communication was HUUUUUGE!

Last night was a HUGE Masonic night at Winter Haven Lodge No. 186, First W:. Dennis Wind and the Brethren of the lodge welcome R:.W:. C. Pearce Dreadin, District Deputy Grand Master who brought inspiring thoughts and words from the Grand Lodge of Florida.

Second, Bro. Patrick Tessoer was made an Honorary Member of Winter Haven Lodge No. 186, the presentation was made by Bro. Tom Wilson and Bro. Justin Butler.

And Finally the opening of the time capsules found when the cornerstone was removed from the former Winter Haven Masonic Temple by W:. Jerry Haynie P:.M:., Bro. Chuck Hicks, Bro. Tom Wilson and W:. Dennis Wind. Pictures of the content can be seen below.

Bro. Tom Wilson opening the second capsule.
Unfortunately, the contents of the second capsule were too fragile to be handled at this time. Great care will be taken over time to reveal their content.
All of the time capsule items shown together.
Even an attempt by W:. Dennis Wind to replace the fragile documents was thwarted by their delicate condition.
