Honoring 50-year Mason members

A 50-year pinning ceremony was held Nov. 10 at Zenith Lodge No. 202 at Tulare. A potluck dinner was served at 6 p.m. There were 20 people in attendance, including the honorees. From left, are Douglas Bjorke, District Master of District No. 9 of Masons of South Dakota; Gordon Marzahn, who was pinned by his wife, Cynthia Marzahn; Alan Steinheuser, who was pinned by his wife, Diane Steinheuser; Bernard Blume, who was pinned by family friend, Deb Schultz; and Worshipful Master Zenith Lodge No. 202, Tom Schultz. Gordon, Alan and Bernard were each initiated, passed and raised, all on the same days in 1969. They followed each other through the Masonic line, and at one point, they were Master, Senior and Junior Wardens of their lodge.
