Fall City Masons to install 2012 officers

The brothers of Falls City Masonic Lodge No. 66 have been quietly serving the Valley community while ‘building better lives and better men’ since 1890. They still meet regularly in the tallest building in Fall City, which has held that record since 1895.

Locals get an opportunity to see a little of the inner workings of a Masonic Temple at the installation for the new officers of the Fall City lodge,  7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14.

To attend, contact the Falls City Masonic Hall; visit www.fallcitylodge.com for the most current contact information.  Business professional attire is appropriate.  The installation is expected to run approximately 75 minutes.

While Freemasons have been a fraternal organization since the 16th century, their roots go back to 13th century Scotland.  Famous Freemasons include George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Meriwether Lewis, Mark Twain, Davy Crockett, John Wayne, astronauts John Glenn and Buzz Aldrin and Presidents Harry Truman and Gerald R. Ford.

The slate of 2012 Officers for Fall City is:

• Worshipful Master, Frank J Schumacher

• Senior Warden, Henry Fletcher III

• Junior Warden, Corey Birch

• Senior Deacon, Mathew Meyers

• Junior Deacon, Ken Dods

• Senior Steward, Russel George

• Junior Steward, Chad Petrakis

• Tyler, Virgil Scott

• Marshal, Warren Oltmann

• Sec., David Harris

• Asst. Sec., Nick Michaud

• Treasurer Dick Meredith

Visitors who would like to stay after to visit with the newly installed officers are welcome to join the new officers in the Carter room at the Falls City Masonic Hall.  Both Masons and non-Masons are welcome.
