Stated Meeting 7 PM
Outgoing Worshipful Master Douglas Jones and incoming Worshipful Master Dale Clark have informed me of the passing of Brother James B. Scott, a charter member of the Masonic Lodge in Macon, Georgia. I understand that his family asked Safford Lodge #16 to give the Masonic Rites at his funeral, Friday, January 2nd, 9:00 AM at the Vining Funeral Home. See the details below.
Worshipful Brother Buck Turney will perform the Rites assisted by the Chaplain Dale Clark. I am sure they would appreciate any assistance with the service. If you are able to attend the service please let Brothers Doug or Dale know of your intention.
