Masonic Apron on the job!

Recently it came to our attention that Tom Johnston IV , Past Grand Master has really been beating the woods for new members. He does this in a unique way by wearing his special apron on the job. We were able to catch up with him on a recent job in Sharon. The chainsaw is such a nice touch and certainly helps to get those names on the bottom line. Keep up the good work Tom!
