Corinthian Lodge holds Second Entered Apprentice Table Lodge

Corinthian Lodge No.67 held an Entered Apprentice Educational Table Lodge on October 19th. The table lodge format created a festive and interactive setting, punctuated by serious degree work. It gave the three candidates (now Entered Apprentices) a good chance to meet the Brothers and experience the spirit of the Lodge. This was the second EA Table Lodge held by Corinthian Lodge, and it has proven to be a popular event.

Most Worshipful Brother John L. Cook, Jr., Grand Master of Minnesota, and Worshipful Brother Henry L. Johnson, Assistant Grand Tyler were present, as well as guests from several other lodges. Corinthian Lodge would like to thank all the guests and participants for their support and encouragement. With special thanks to Merle Cole and Mike Bell for their great performances of the 2nd and 3rd lectures.
