History Made at Whitfield Lodge


Bro. Richard W. Shevalier, II (center) was raised in Whitfield Lodge No. 622, Tatamy, at an extra meeting on October 19. At the conclusion of the Master Mason degree Bro. Shevalier changed into a tuxedo and conferred the Entered Apprentice degree upon John J. Favere (right). Never before in its 103 years has a brother been raised and the conferring Master on the same night. Immediately after receiving his Entered Apprentice degree Bro. Shevalier began learning the ritual from his mentor Bro. William G. Smith, Jr., P.M. (left). Bro. Shevalier will confer the Fellowcraft degree in February and the Master Mason's degree in March on Bro. Favere.

Bro. Smith is a Senior Instructor in the 50th Masonic District School of Instruction and has mentored and taught ritual to over 100 Masons.
