Labor Day celebrates the workers who have build this country.  

It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. 

Many of the men who built America were Freemasons and Waterloo Lodge #105 remembers, with honor, their sacrifices that made this country great! 

Thank you!

Each Month Waterloo Lodge #105 does a "Famous Mason" section during the educational portion of our stated meeting.  The chosen Master Mason has impacted the world, his country or his local lodge in a very positive way.  For the month of July, we had a special presentation for Brother William (Bill) Ottesen.  

Brother Ottesen is a 50 year member of #105, is a Paster Master for the year of 1971 and was lodge Secretary from 1977 through 1994.  He is on the Temple Board and continues to be very active in the lodge on a day to day basis.  

Pictured with Brother Ottesen is Worshipful Master Brother Kevin Nelson and S.E. Brother Andrew Schaffer.  

All the Brothers of #105 would like to thank Brother Bill Ottesen for his continued support of Freemasonry and the traditions that we hold dear.
