On May 14, 2016 Brothers from Latonia Lodge No. 746 made visited with Brothers from Elvin E. Helms Lodge No. 926 once again. Elvin E. Helms No. 926 is quickly becoming one of our favorite lodges to visit due to it’s focus on Masonic Education and Masonic Growth. On this evening we were pleased to learn that we would be witness to their annual Bernard A. Hogan Essay Contest winners ceremony. Elvin E. Helms No. 926 offers local Junior High School students the opportunity to earn a cash scholarship to assist in their college education. On this night they awarded scholarships to three students, who brought their families to the lodge and read their essays in front of roughly 30 people.
We were also excited to learn that Bro. William Kouns from Lexington Lodge No. 1 would be the guest speaker during the stated meeting, discussing topics on Masonic Education and Etiquette.
Once again, the Brothers from Elvin E. Helms Lodge No. 926 impressed us and welcomed our Brothers with open arms.
We will again be in Petersburg, KY on Thursday June 30, 2016 to enjoy a FC Degree conferred by Bro. Jim Herzog.
