A Word From the Master

2019 Worshipful Master

I am humbled and honored to serve Gardner Lodge No. 65 as the Master for 2019.  I was born and raised in Gardner and am proud to be a fourth generation Kansas Mason.  

The goals for 2019 are to build on the strong foundation of 150 years of our lodge and grow our reach within the community. We are here to serve both the lodge and our community.  

Gardner Lodge has the privilege of serving the communities of Gardner, Edgerton and Wellsville.  This year will be marked with family focused events, community service, and an continuing focus growing our community presence and our knowledge of our Masonic tenants.

When not in lodge I work as a professional firefighter in the metro area and enjoy camping and spending time with my wife amazing Jennie and our young daughter Ellis.

My greatest Masonic memory is being able to sit in lodge with my Grandfather Gail Neis and Father Steve Neis.

If you are looking for a way to better yourself as a man and in turn serve those in your community Gardner Masonic Lodge No. 65 is for you!

I am always available to answer questions and assist in anyway possible.
