We would like to thank the Divan & their Ladies for making the trip to Midland for our March Social. The meeting was a great success with much fun & fellowship for all. On March 18th, the Masons of Midland and WM Cody Webb from Concho #1260 cooked and fed over 55 people at the Church Under the Bridge in Midland. Cody donated of over 20 pounds of meat which we combined with the fruits and vegetables that we purchased. The Church Under the Bridge has already asked us to cook for them again in the future. We are so thankful for such a young Worshipful Master in Noble Toby Littlefield who leads his Acacia Lodge #1414 to get out and do community service. Once again, thank you to all who helped cook and serve at this event. There is a lot of degree work going on at the local lodges in the Permian Basin and if you are interested in visiting or coming by, please feel free to contact one of us or stop by 1600 West Wall Street.

March was Big Fun for us in Nolan County. For our March social, PP Jim McKenzie grilled Ribs, hominy casserole, buttered potatoes, beans and French Bread. The Ladies brought salad and tons of desserts. No one left hungry. Great Shrine Meeting. That same week kicked off the Sweetwater Rattlesnake Roundup. A big thanks to all the Nobles that showed up for the Parade that Thursday. We took some great pictures.
