Degree Night at North Bank for Bro Copeland

This was a great week for North Bank Lodge!  On Monday, April 16 2012, Brother James Copeland was raised to the Sublime degree of a Master Mason.  James joined North Bank Lodge earlier in the year, and has been actively working with Hunter Greening as his coach. 


After Jim completed his posting lecture, preparations were made to deliver the degree.  As ever, we are very appreciative of the brothers from District 19 lodges who assisted us in performing the degree for Bro. James.  Thank you to:


  • VWB Ray Zimmerman, Silver Star Lodge #286
  • VWB Jay Galland, Mt. Hood Lodge #32
  • WB Mike Clemenhagen, Ridgefield Daylight #237
  • WB Ric Bishop, Silver Star Lodge #286
  • Bro Leigh Cahill, Washington Lodge #4
  • Bro Gevorg Mkhitaryan, Washington Lodge #4

As Bro Copeland completes the first step of his Masonic journey, he continues his work with the Coast Guard, ever working on increasing his knowledge.  We so enjoy having Jim at North Bank, and hope his assignment to this area continues to his benefit, as it certainly has been to ours.

While we have only just finished our third degree (well, our third third degree), there is rumor that a petition may be read at our next lodge meeting.  We may yet have another opportunity to welcome a new brother to Masonry, as well as give Jim, as well as our other newly minted Master Masons, an opportunity to participate in the degrees once again!

Our next stated communication will occur on the first Monday in May.  Dinner will be served at 6:30PM; lodge will tyle promptly at 7:30.  If you're new to our Lodge, or you're a long-time brother, please come visit; we'd love to see you!

(Thank you to Bro. Arthur Liss for these wonderful photos!)
