The York Rite Grand Commandery of Knights Templars, the Grand Lodge of Indiana and the Officers of Rockport Lodge #112 lined up for a processional from the courthouse to the library to begin the plaque dedication ceremony for the 100th anniversary of Carnegie Library, Saturday, April 23. Above, Rodney A. Mann, Senior Grand Warden consecrates the plaque with wine during the ceremony of the Spencer County Carnegie Library 100th anniversary. These customs are symbolic to ancient craft of Masonry and date back to the building of King Solomon’s Temple. The Masonic Fraternity is the oldest fraternity in the world because it started before the building of King Solomon’s Temple. It is more than 3,000 years old.
