Perfect upper-60s temperature, barely a cloud in the sky, a cool breeze, and not a mosquito to be seen - the perfect weather for the Spring Outing at the Papillion Gun Club. Over 200 Masons and prospective Masons turned out for an evening of trap shooting and a bacon-wrapped steak dinner, with baked potato, salad, corn, and roll on the side, prepared by the Culinary Masters.
John Maxell ran a 50-50 draw, awarding a several hundred prize at the end of the evening to one lucky recipient, while quite a few guests brought home raffle prizes drawn by Scott Oglesby and Paul Rutherford.
The evening has become the perfect venue for prospective Brethren as well, and several members brought along sons, co-workers, or friends to introduce them to Freemasonry in a relaxing environment. One guest, Jeff Calaway, has petitioned Miloma Lodge, and we look forward to raising him in the next few weeks as a Brother Master Mason.
With perfect weather, great Brotherhood, and a relaxing evening, the Spring Outing is an event not to be missed. But if you did, you have another opportunity to attend this Fall at the Outing on September 21, 2016.
