Scenes from the Kora Kraftsman Ladies of the Table
The Kora Kraftsman held a Ladies of the Table on May 17th. This is an event that is a cross between a traditional mens table lodge and a ladies night.
We honored not only our new Grand Master's wife, Audrey Walker but also our most recent past Grand Master's wife, Gerry Ross as well as our Potentate's lady, Nancy Gove.
The 7-course meal was enjoyed by all and it was very well attended. This is an event we hope to continue next year as well.

Another Successful Summer Ceremonial
What a great weekend. We could have not had better weather. The Grand Architect was definitely looking down on us this weekend.
Kora welcomed 24 new nobles. Many positive comments were heard all weekend long. There were two very special events that occurred at Bayley's Campground that we may not see again for a very long time; noble Brent Tanguay popped the question to girlfriend Karen Schneider in front of all to see - and see said YES!!
Masonic Values Shine within the Kora Family
As I mentioned in the previous story, there were two very special events that happened at Bayley's Campground. The second touching event was seeing Masonic charity in its truest form.
Three days earlier, noble Damon Brooks and his wife Melissa lost their home to fire. Fire officials said the house was completely engulfed in flames when crews arrived at about midnight. Firefighters from more than a half dozen area towns battled the blaze. Damon and Melissa lost their house and all of their possessions to a house fire.
The nobility of Kora and masons have been donating to a fund set up for them. In addition, Bayley's Campground donated a substantial amount to Damon & Melissa.
