During the meeting, the FNC Board of Directors will also discuss whether to pursue filing for 501(c)3 non-profit status for the organization, and whether or not to grant money to the further maintenance of the 46th Street Mural.

On Saturday, October 18th, Doric Lodge #92 held its 122nd Annual Installation of Officers ceremony, at Fremont’s Free & Accepted Masons.

At a public ceremony, the Masons welcomed in a Senior and Junior Warden, and installed, for another year, a Secretary and Treasurer.  In front of his wife, Jeannette, and his mother, Grant D. Cooper accepted the role as Worshipful Master for #92.

After being presented by his mother with the gavel used by his grandfather, a Mason in Idaho, Cooper spoke on his goals for his year as Worshipful Master.  He wants to focus on social services, this year, including helping the homeless who sell ‘Real Change’ newspapers.

With help from members of other, neighboring Masonic Orders, the Doric Lodge completed its installation – and then everyone feasted.  If you want to learn more about the Masons, and our Doric Lodge #92, visit their website.

On Tuesday, October 28th, at 7p, Seattle Pacific University (SPU) invites everyone to participate in a community discussion about race relations in our country, called ‘Race In America After Ferguson.’  At Upper Gwinn Commons, SPU faculty will offer a historical and theological context to recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, facilitate an open conversation and provide breakout sessions on a variety of topics.

Tali Hairston, Director of the John Perkins Center, the evening includes a panel containing Brian Bantum, David Nienhuis, Jorge Preciado, and Kimberly Segall.

This free discussion will give attendees a chance to learn and grow in a caring community.  Find out more information on the SPU website.
