We Have Lost Our Oldest Brother

Brethren, I just received word from our WM that our Brother Franklin Dwight Mitchell has passed away.

A Masonic Funeral Service is scheduled for 10:00am this Wednesday morning, the 19th of October, at Bethel United Methodist Church(on Bethel Church Road, near 24/27).  The information we have is that Brother Mitchell will be interred at a cemetery in Sparta, NC.  Brother Mitchell was our only centenarian, 102 years old, and a member of Union Lodge for 37 years.

If you can attend the funeral service, please do.  Masonic funeral services are quite often the first encounter with our fraternity for many non-Masons.


R. Darrell Long, PM Secretary
