This past Sunday was the 151st Public Installation of Officers of Libertyville Lodge #492 AF&AM. It was a little chilly outside for the middle of May, but there was a warm reception for the new officers of the lodge. The sidelines were full of many members of Libertyville #492, Freemasons from the 1st NE District, family members, and friends - even Libertyville Mayor Terry Weppler came out to show his support of the lodge.
The Installing Officers put on a wonderful ceremony, highlighted by Bro. Spencer Hamann being installed as Worshipful Master for the 2017-2018 Masonic Year. WB Hamann was Raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason in October 2013, and is not only highly involved in many activities at Libertyville #492, but is also the current President of the Lake County School of Masonic Instruction and the current Secretary of the Libertyville Temple Corporation.
The other 2017-2018 Officers of Libertyville Lodge #492 are: Bro. Glenn Simpson (Sr. Warden), Bro. Dan Lutter (Jr. Warden), RWB Drew Lambert (Secretary), RWB Jim McKinnon (Asst. Secretary), Bro. Nick Winnestrom (Treasurer), Bro. Jeffery James (Sr. Deacon), Bro. Mike Kaniok (Jr. Deacon), Bro. Mitchell White (Sr. Steward), Bro. Robert Abrahams (Jr. Steward), Bro. Gerry Thomas (Chaplain), Bro. Jorge Ortiz (Marshall), Bro. Kent Overholser (Tyler)
This year is shaping up to be a wonderful year at Libertyville Lodge - highlighted by a Rededication Ceremony this upcoming September. If you're a member and haven't come to a meeting in a while, we welcome you to come see what we are doing. We have a wonderful group of young officers who have great ideas for the future of the lodge. There are only a handful of meetings before we go dark for the summer, but we welcome any who are able to come see what we have planned for this year.
