On Feb. 22, 2010 my grandfather, Bro. Joe Bradshaw P.M., attended Milwaukie Lodge #109 A.F.A.M. in Milwaukie, OR to assist in raising myself, Bro. David Anderson, to the degree of Master Mason.
Prior to the degree, Bethel #10 (including my daughter, Joe's great-granddaughter, Dominique) performed the singing cross for those in attendance. After which the lodge was cleared and the degree of Master Mason were conferred upon myself and one other brother from West Africa. Following the degree my grandfather presented me with the same pin that his grandfather presented him when he was raised to a Master Mason some 48 years ago.
Milwaukie Lodge is one of the oldest lodges in Oregon. The website to the lodge is http://www.milwaukielodge.org The current Master is WM Fadi Aranout.
I thank you for your time and always look forward to seeing what is going on at your lodge and look forward to visiting it soon. I hope you have a great day.
Bro. Dave Anderson
