I visited Mt. Moriah Lodge #2 F&AM of Salt Lake City, Utah Monday, June 11 during their monthly stated meeting. Another brother also happened to be visiting yesterday evening and he was in town for the same event as I was: scoring Advanced Placement exams.
After being examined by both Deacons, I met several of the brothers, but it was a busy evening for the Lodge. The Grand Lodge of Utah was visiting: 16 members of the Grand line were in attendance for the annual visitation. During the meeting, the Grand Lecturer made a presentation on Utah’s ritual, the Grand Orator spoke on the importance of living up to the fraternity’s ideals, and the Grand Master, Most Worshipful Frank C. Baker reviewed the Lodge’s activities and programs.
Another fascinating part of the meeting was a visit by the local Job’s Daughters. The girls made a presentation on the significance of their robe and its meaning and connections to Freemasonry.
After the meeting, I had a chance to visit with Mt. Moriah’s Worshipful Master Robert Smith and Brother Bill Dysart. Both were very welcoming and friendly, as were all the Utah Freemasons I met last night.
