The Rusty Trowel committee reports that the Masonic Family booth at the Los Angeles County Fair this September was very busy, along with doing several hundred Child ID’s, they received 217 inquires for membership covering 71 California Lodges. It’s hoped that each of the lodges follows up on these inquires they were sent and we see 217 plus new brother in the near future.
They also had Three(3) masons that wanted to know how to be reinstated. Seven 7) inquires for OES, 2 Jobe’s Daughter, 2 for DeMolay and 4 for Prince Hall.
They had several out of state visitors. One inquire for membership was sent o the Grand Lodge of Ohio and Two sent to the Grand Lodge of Arizona.
Gene Bowman and the committee wants to thank everyone that helped out at the booth and all the lodges that help support the committees work at the fair and thought the year.
