Photo by Debra Moore " Debra Moore Staff Writer dmre@ptu masnews'cm Masonic dignitaries from throughout the state arrived in Quincy on Dec. 20 to of Fmially consecrate the Plumas Lodge as the first historic lodge in the state. The Quincy lodge became the first in California to receive the designation in November 2014, but it was formalized during a late morning ceremony Dec. 20. Despite the snowy conditions, Masons from throughout Northern California and from as far as San Diego attended. The event included prayer, a reading of the lodge's history, recognition of dignitaries, and various displays of pageantry. Robert Zernich was recognized as lodge master, ' with Bill Witcher as secretary and Jim Hedin as senior warden. Dick Jolley, who was master of the lodge when the historic dispensation was granted in 2014, also attended the event. Following the ceremony, a luncheon catered by Carey Candy Co./Bell Lane Baked Goods was served. The historic designation was created in 2012 by the Grand Lodge of California to help rural lodges survive. The Quincy Masonic Lodge was built in 1855, and it has become increasingly difficult for its members to maintain it. The designation allows Masons from throughout the state to become members and the associated dues will allow local Masons to continue to maintain the building. A historic lodge can accept Master Masons from other lodges, but cannot accept new members who aren't already Masons. Quincy area residents would need to join another lodge -- perhaps Greenville or Beckwourth -- and then become a member of the new historic lodge. To become a Mason, one must be of good moral as the first historic lodge in the character and profess a belief in a superior being. A prospective member must apply and then be voted upon by the lodge's membership. There has been a steady decline in membership in the United States. In 1959 there were 4 million members and today there are approximately 1.3 million members. Quincy has about 45 members. Their meetings are held the second Monday of the month.

The Town Hall Theatre showed its last film on the old projector last weekend and is now preparing to show the first film using its new digital projector Friday night. Longtime projectionist Barbara Stricker was nostalgic and a bit sad last weekend as she projected her last movie on film onto the screen of the Quincy theatre. After the reel of the 1987 classic "The Princess Bride" ran through last Monday night, Stricker bid adieu to the old projector and the old way of playing films for Plumas residents. See 2015, page 8A From left, Quincy High School graduates kisses to the audience before taking their Claire Wright, Brooke Potter and Jasmin Sherman blow seats for the ceremony.
