A wonderful example of love of poetry is shared for all. In Union NO. 3 in McMinnville Or. we were blessed with a wonderful man and Freemason WB Dale. He was our Poet laureate. During many degrees and meetings he would sit quietly and listen to the business of the lodge diligently writing the poetry for the night. At the end of the meeting he would raise his hand and announce to the WM in the East that he had something to share. He would slowly stand and present his poem to the Brothers. Those nights are greatly missed by this Brother. Our dear WB Dale is greatly missed.
