Chino Valley Lodge 427 Charter Reinstated

posted by admin
April 4, 2013



The Grand Master, Most Worshipful John Lowe & the Executive Committee of the Grand Lodge of California have voted to Reinstate the Charter of Chino Valley Masonic Lodge # 427. A Grand Lodge representative, Worshipful Inspector, Herb Pompey presented the Charter to the Lodge at our Stated Meeting on Monday, April 1st, 2013. The Division VIII, Grand Lecturer, Worshipful Frank Lee was present. Both our Inspector and A.G.L. were very happy, as were the Brethren to be able to return the Charter to Chino Valley Masonic Lodge. Refreshments were served at 6:30pm and we anxiously waited for the Stated Meeting to begin at 7:30pm. Three Grand Masters as did the AGL and our Inspector had faith in Chino Valley and allowed us to meet the benchmarks put before us to once again be a Chartered Lodge.  Many Brethren from many Lodges were on hand to witness and share this special occasion. Brother Richard Bonilla came from as far as Long Beach. It was a special day indeed.  The Return of the Lodge Charter will be dedicated to Masons everywhere and proof that "Time, Patience & Perseverance" can accomplish all things. I must also give so much credit to the members of Chino Valley Masonic Valley and our two Officer's Coaches who never gave up. To this "Band of Brothers" the word fail didn't exist.

Being Worshipful Master, to work with these Brethren and to be part of this historical event was an honor and a privilege.

We are thankful to Grand Lodge and all who have made this possible.
