3rd Prize for 3 Ruffians

Congratulations to my fellow Ruffians of the Gate of the Temple Lodge #422 for taking 3rd Prize for Best Chili in the Annual Sertoma Chili Cookoff in Springfield, Missouri. It was our first time to enter the competition and I think we did pretty well against 78 other entries involved!

Masters Monta, and Jeremy did a wonderful job building a Masonic facade for our booth and, quite obviously, Monta and Bob managed to mix together some rather good Masonic chili. The recipe is a secret are most things in Masonry.

It occurs to me that we took 3rd Place. After all, we are Ruffians!

With the help of David Caldwell, we put together this shindig in an effort to further expose our community to the values and the members of our Masonic lodge. We had the full support of the Missouri Grand Lodge and we're glad we could thank them with a trophy finish!

We Ruffians urge all Masonic Lodges to get involved in their community events. After all, you can't be in a position to aid your fellow brothers unless you walk side by side with them.
