thanks to WB Fred Van Dyk

The weather certainly cooperated this year! The tradition of Fidelity Lodge in the 1990's was to march in the parade in tuxedo. With the weather being conducive to this, we decided to bring back the old tradition. WBs John and Lou DeSocio sported tails for the occasion and as the banner carriers set the tone for the delegation. Our turnout of marchers was disappointing but we had four marchers in tux and one in business suit. We received many compliments along the route. We also had occasion to have representatives from Grand Lodge and Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star along with DeMolay and Rainbow with us in the parade. Photos from the parade were taken by Jennifer Andrews a petitioner for Ridgewood Chapter #39. We thank Don and Dan Mueller for again providing the tractor and flat bed and to Bill Dietsch, Bob Buck, and Harry Kramer for helping assemble the float.
