A tradition was started a few years ago. The Sitting Grand Master and the Past Grand Masters travel to Morgan Minnesota and have lunch with Past Grand Bill Tiffany. Bill is the oldest living Grand Master. He was in office in 1968. During his year we had 268 lodges and well over 60,000 Master Masons. Bill is famous for his saying" We make Masons out of Good Men not members"My how some things don't change.
In contrast during my year there are 160 lodges and barley 15,000 Master Masons. My how things do change.

In this photo back row is my Masonic Great Grand Father John Peterson-1981, Ward Sonsteby-1989, Me, Sam Dickinson-1978

Front Row Verne E Long-1973, Bill Tiffany-1968, Tom McCarthy-2009

So there you have a picture of the youngest Grand Master and the Oldest and a few points in between.

It was a great day of Brotherhood. Oh man the stories that were flying! I learned more over a slice of home made pie than a year sitting in a Grand Lodge Chair.It was an experience Ill always remember.
