Tuesday night 4/22/08 The officers for Pride of Mt. Pisgah were installed in a closed session by District Deputy Gary Connor after he had completed his official District Deputy's visit and yearly review of the Lodge (see pictures below). Yours truly is back as Chaplain. Worshipful Master Kazar LaGrone then laid out an entire years lesson program, outlining all the topics we would be covering each meeting. He told us that he would assign some topics but for many others he would welcome volunteers to present a lessson. Deputy Grand Master Michael Anderson, a member of Pride of Mt. Pisgah #135, presented a lesson on the Masonic apron. Every Prince Hall Communication has a Masonic presentation or lesson of education. Afterwards the Officers and members of Mt.Pisgah enjoyed a time of fraternal fellowship.
The program for the ensuing year Worhipful LaGrone outlined in a letter sent to all Brethren prior to the Installation. A look at the coming years activities yields this list:
Running the Grand Lodge Golf Tournament
Family Bowling Night

The other was our particiaption in the King of the Court Baskeball Tournmanet benefitting youth scholarships.
