Murrieta Mesa High School Cornerstone Ceremony

 On Friday, May 25, 2012, Temecula-Catalina Island Lodge #524 sponsored a cornerstone ceremony at Murrieta Mesa High School in Murrieta, California. The day began with the Grand Lodge officers, the officers of Temecula-Catalina Island Lodge, their families and guests socializing at the Lodge. At noon the Grand Lodge performed their Grand Lodge opening which was followed by a great lunch.

 The ceremony at the high school began with the entrance of the Masons and Grand Lodge officers.  The American flag was presented by the NJROTC Color Guard, and the national anthem was sung by senior, Emily Minor.  We were welcomed by the Principal Mary Walters and the Murrieta Valley United School District Superintendent, Dr. Stan Scheer.  After a musical selection by Emily Minor the Senior Class President, Allison Moreno, spoke and then listed the contents of the time capsule. Shawn Stevenson gave an inspiring speech from the senior class, who will be the first senior class graduating next week from the new school.

The Grand Lodge officers, lead by the Grand Master, the Most Worshipful Frank Loui, then proceeded with the formal cornerstone ceremony. The cornerstone and the time capsule will be place by the flag pole at the athletic field.  On behalf of the Grand Lodge of California, Past Grand Master, William J. Bray III, presented the principal with a $1000.00 from the Masonic Foundation, to be used specifically for the new school.

We congratulate Don Young and Mike Sekera for their assistance with the coordinating of the ceremony with the Grand Lodge, the school and the Lodge, to the Inspector Russ Baldauf for the countless hours he spent on this project and the members of Temecula-Catalina Island for their obvious attention to the details and for the excellent execution of the events of the entire day.
