The Vandalia Masonic Lodge No. 491 met early to make a special presentation to one of our most loyal and respected members, Charles Scrogin.
During an open meeting where nearly 60 Masons and guests gathered, Charlie was honored with an achievement few Masons reach, that of having been a faithful member of the Masonic Fraternity for 50 years.
The presentation was made by RWB Tim Thomas, who was recently installed as the Senior Grand Warden in the Grand Lodge of Missouri.
RWB Thomas and Charlie served on the Missouri Water Patrol together for many years.
RWB Thomas made the presentation along with some humorous stories of them working together.
At the conclusion of the ceremony everyone enjoyed refreshments prior to the Lodge’s regular meeting.
