Welcome To Simi Valley Masonic Center #806
Words From The East
Brethren, meet the new Master of Simi Valley Lodge,
Worshipful Wilson comes to us from the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia where he was a trial lawyer. But between Princeton and Villanova Law School he was out here in California at USC in the graduate film program. He worked in the film industry as a production assistant, an extra, and a film editor and somehow got on IMDB.com (Once as Steve, and once as Stephen.)
Then he met Margie Warden from Simi Valley. They moved to Pennsylvania where Steve went to law school and worked as a trial lawyer for three decades. They have two daughters and a son who is a past master of King Solomon’s Temple #45 in Bellows Falls, Vermont, and two granddaughters and a grandson.
We first met Steve when he came by to find out about Masonry, and rather than tell him, we showed him by putting him to work on our remodel of the kitchen. He helped out a lot and we really got to know him and he got to know us pretty well also.
He asked to be part of the lodge and was initiated in October, passed in November and raised to Master Mason in December of 2009. He was our Marshal and Chaplain prior to starting up the line. Steve has been right behind me in the line for a few years, and we have become very good friends, confiding in each other whenever we have issues or questions about something.
Steve is very conscientious about the brothers in the lodge as well as the Rainbow, Job’s and Eastern Star. He has a genuine love for the lodge, its perception and its future, and I see great things coming in his year as Master of the lodge.
Please help me in welcoming our new Master and give him any assistance he may need.
I would also like to thank all those that helped me out over the past year. It was a very fun year, I learned a lot and it will be an experience I will keep with me for many years to come.
Remember to check out the calendar on our web site for more information. http://simimasons.org/maincalendar/
