Kenton Makes Kyle Cisco its First EA for the Quarter
Posted on October 25, 2019
Even with last-minute changes to the cast, the brothers of Kenton Lodge no. 145 successfully initiated Mr. Kyle Cisco as an Entered Apprentice last night in a ceremony that saw multiple brothers assuming new roles for the first time.
Among the major highlights of the evening was current Senior Deacon Brother Ryan Whittenburg successfully assuming the responsibilities of the Oriental Chair as conferring master during the first and second sections of the ceremony. His successful rendition of the role qualifies him to sit as Junior Warden of the lodge for the next year, which was expected by both the corps of officers and the general membership.
Other highlights included Brother Kaid Collins sitting in the south as Junior Warden during the first section, Brother Manase Salema as Senior Steward, Brother John Giler as Chaplain for the opening and Junior Deacon during the first section, and honored Brother Matt Richardson assuming Junior Steward responsibilities.
Several brothers from other lodges were also in attendance:
- WB Peter Morrison of Eastgate Lodge no. 155
- Brother Todd Lewis of Eastgate Lodge no. 155
- Brother Aaron Clark of Willamette Lodge no. 2
After the degree, the brethren were then treated to honored Brother James “Ironblood” Elam and his culinary team’s fabulous Pasta e Fagioli and garlic bread. Candied sweet potato with pomegranate seeds was also served for dessert.
Brother Cisco’s initiation marks the first of two remaining Entered Apprentice degrees scheduled for the year. The last will be for Mr. David Crymer which is scheduled for the third Thursday in November.
