Members from Gate City Lodge No #2 visited Shades Valley #829 to witness the historic raising of Bro. Ronald King, the first African American to be raised in an Alabama F&AM lodge. The Brethren were well received. The steps taken thus far by the Brethren of Shades Valley is to be commended and teaches us all what Freemasonry is all about. We welcome Bro. King to the Craft and thank the members of Shades Valley for their excellent work.
