You have probably heard:
Worshipful Master Billy Meeks ,spent Saturday night at Methodist Central Hospital (room 4107) on Colorado St. for
observation following a multi-car pile up earlier today in route home from Waco Texas . WM Billy and son Matt were driving back from Grand Lodge this
afternoon and as neared the I-20 exit off I-35 found themselves head on with an out of control car in their path.
Billy was removed from the wreckage by the Glenn Heights Fire & Rescue and transported to Methodist Central where
both he went thru testing for internal injuries and bleeding . Bro.Trent Forbes was nearby when the accident occurred
and transported and attended Matt to the hospital where he too was checked over and then released.
It is thought as many as five or six vehicles may have been involved but no fatalities. ----Reporting from Bro Cliff Martin
Billy's CT scans were normal---- Please keep our WM in your prayers, and more information from Cliff Martin Eblast News.
The 178th Grand Annual Communication was attended by 12 or so EFL members and officers.
We had a great time at the Texas Roadhouse as the WM celebrated
his "birthday" on a saddle riding high to the choral efforts of the staff and brethren.
On the business side of the session, M:. W:. Grand Master Walter Rogers,
kept the meeting on schedule and in fact a little ahead of schedule,
and between the long waits for balloting, he gave us some of his stand up jokes,
which cracked attendees up, It was a well run communication.
New elected R:.W:. Jerry Nelson Kirby won the election for Grand Junior Warden.
Newly elected M:.W:. Jerry L. Martin is our new Grand Master for 2014. His theme for the year will be
"Masonry is a Gift", ...Receive it, Share it, and Preserve it.
EFL received the Vanguard Award for 2013 along with 92 other lodges at the opening Thursday Dec 6th session.
It was quite the achievement for so many lodges receiving this honor for excellence in lodge operations.
Congratulations to all our members and officers for making this possible two years in a row.
