Red Bud Masons recognized for excellence

Red Bud Masonic Lodge #427 took second place this year for the Grand Master’s Award of Excellence from the Grand Lodge of Illinois. Previously, the Red Bud Lodge had won the state wide award for several years in the small lodge category (less than 80 members), but last year they were moved up to and won the big lodge category. Pictured with the award are Red Bud Lodge Worshipful Master Billy McIntyre and Grand Master of the State of Illinois Stephen Oakley.
