Grand Lodge 2016

The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons of South Carolina held their annual communication April 28th & 29th at the Embassy Suites of Greenville, SC.  Over one thousand Masons were said to be in attendance for this event which Most Worshipful Brother William B. Rogers presided.  Grand Lodge business was conducted on Thursday, with the Grand Master’s Banquet being held that evening, where the Frederick Dalcho and Albert Gallatin Mackey awards were presented by the Grand Master.  On Friday, Inman Lodge had the privilege to present one of twelve George Washington portraits that were given out.  Inman’s portrait was presented to The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the State of Ohio, with Most Worshipful Brother Robert Rill in acceptance.  MWB Rill was excited to receive the portrait, and as a token of thanks presented Inman Lodge with a signed bobble head doll of himself, which he explained was being sold in his Grand Jurisdiction as a fund raiser.  Later, Inman Lodge had the honor of having WB Paul McWilliams being appointed as Senior Grand Deacon for 2016.  WB Paul was also named ambassador to Macedonia, as well as RWB Bruce Chennery being named ambassador to Santander, Colombia
