Five Raised by Torchlight at Autumnal Ritual in Masonic Cemetery:
Gate City Lodge No. 2 conferred the Master’s Degree on five candidates on October 22nd, 2011. The ceremonies were held in the Masonic section of Forrest Lawns Memorial Gardens just south of Atlanta. The paths were lit with lanterns, candles and torches. The East, West, South and Altar were constructed of White Georgia Marble.
There was no moon that night and the weather had just started to turn cold. The Brethren and candidates toughed the conditions for what all agreed was a most memorable occasion.
To see the names of brethren who had gone before prior to the sun going down made the affair all the more touching. Many of these Brethren were buried next to their wives, daughters and sons: Lodge was held that night, and this was the first time that they were present at lodge with their fathers and husbands.
