Members of Everett Lodge have been prominent in business, the professions and public service; in fact, all walks of life. At one time the entire Everett School board was comprised of members of Everett Lodge. Near the end of the Commissioner form of city government for Everett, two of the Commissioners were members of Everett No. 137. The roll has contained at least two Chiefs of Police. The Lodge has entertained visitors from many foreign lands. Further international goodwill was developed in 1964 by W.B. Frank T. Whitchurch, Master; W.B. Ralph L. Leyde, then Senior Warden and W.B. Lynn Bjerke, then Junior Warden, in bringing to fruition the bi-annual visitations to Prospect Lodge No.172 - AF&AM in British Columbia, Canada. These visitations have resulted in the establishment of very deep and warm friendships between the brethren of the respective lodges. Their ladies, having participated in the social events of these visitations, have also shared in this fraternal friendship that continues to this day. By way of public relations, the March 29, 1979 issue of the Everett Herald column “25 Years Ago,” reminded the public that Everett Masons contributed to the city’s then “Garden City” by planting shrubs and spring flowers about their building and in 1997 the presentation of a portrait of our late Brother and Senator Henry M. Jackson to Henry M. Jackson High School. Masons have been taught, from of old, to be of unselfish service to humanity. Long may it continue to be.
