Brethren & Ladies:

Ernest Borgnine, Robert D. Rowan, Jr.
On May 7th, 2011 the Long Beach Scottish Rite formally dedicated their theatre to be “the Ernest Borgnine Theatre”. Sandy and I were honored to represent the San Jose Valley at the dedication ceremony.  Ill. Borgnine is 94 years of age, but you would never know it.  His grace and charm was all that was necessary to warm the evening.  Believe it or not, he is beginning another movie.  Masons were present from all over the country and included the Sovereign Grand Commander, Ill. Ronald A. Seale; our own M.W. Grand Master, William J. Bray III, and many representatives from all over California.  It was definitely and evening to remember.
