50th Gala Installation
Years back, one of our esteemed past presidents (Nate Salter) used to admonish those sitting in the president's chair that they would be required to hold the position until they got it "right." By these standards, Forestdale Heights Lodge may never have another installation because on Sunday, June 4, installation organizers and planners did indeed get everything not just "right," but absolutely perfect.
