Chapter One Five
Illinois Vest Lecture
by Brother Allen Hurt



For the first time our chapter was able to present the Vest Lecture to a new candidate. After taking 2 weeks to memorize it and trying to figure out the best way to put it all together, I was unsure how it was going to come across. The day came for our meeting and we all met at the Abbas Grotto with our Ladies as well. We closed off the room separating the Ladies from us. Turned on a couple of lights for effect and set up a table for an alter. We opened a Masonic Bible and placed the corner of the vest with the tools patch on the bible as it would be in Lodge. The Brothers took their seats and I began the Lecture. The candidate kneeled down in front of altar then stood with hands placed on vest. As I was reciting the words I noticed that not just the candidate but my fellow Brothers was really listening. This was the first time any of them had actually heard or seen this presentation. By the end of the lecture it felt good again not only to be a Widows Son but a Mason. The lecture was a good reminder that we are always Masons first and I could tell by the emotion and reaction of my Brothers that they felt it and got the message as well. It may have only lasted about 10 min. but the message was direct and clear. We then welcomed him, one by one, with the 5 points of Fellowship. We then opened up the room for the Ladies to come in and welcome him. His wife was welcomed in as a Widows Sons Lady by our the Ladies. It was a great day to be a Freemason and a Widows Son. I am Road Capt. Allen Hurt "Skylz" brother in Widows Sons Chapter "OneFive".
