2012 General Grand Chapter in Ft. Worth

We had a great time in Ft. Worth at General Grand Chapter and especially enjoyed seeing our own PGM John Grobler go from Acting MWGP to Most Worthy Grand Patron, and our PGM Joy Lough installed as Worthy Grand Ruth along with all of our GG Committee members.  There were over 50 Washington members there.

We started off with a fun day at the Stockyards capped off with a BBQ and rodeo (the cows won)!  Then it was on to the many festivities of General Grand:  Estarl Service, Memorial, Youth introductions, business, resolutions, closing and installation!  That doesn't include the endless meals and social time.  It was wonderful.

One resolution of note that was adopted:  first and second female cousins of Master Masons can now join.  It's not as much as we hoped to accomplish, but I'm sure many of you can find some cousins who want to join and it didn't say how many times removed they could be.

My pictures are below in order by the date they were taken.  Took them all with my phone, so the quality might not be as great as the ones Rodger will be sending soon, but it will give you some idea of the goings on.
