<p style=”text-align: center;”>Worshipful Joshua Keim – Master of Harmonie Lodge – 2014-2016</p>
Worshipful Bro. Keim was initiated by the Brothers of Harmonie Lodge No. 699 on August 12, 2009, passed on November 11, 2009, and Raised on February 27, 2010. During his four-plus years in the Craft, Bro. Keim has been an active participant in a number of different ways. He served as Harmonie’s Marshal for almost two years, and appointed Junior Deacon in 2012. He also served as Secretary of the Ronald J. Keel Fellowcraft Club for two years, and is currently Vice President. During the 2013-2014 Lodge year, Bro. Keim sat in the South as Junior Warden. Another jump in the officer chairs was not without its obstacles, but overall was a very rewarding experience. In addition to an increase in duties and ritual work, Bro. Keim submitted a discussion piece to the WNY Lodge of Research entitled “Raising a Lewis: A Discussion Masonic Legacies” in 2012. It was a piece that took a deeper exploration into a Craft symbol not commonly seen in American Freemasonry.

The desire to write this piece was inspired in large part by the birth of Bro. Keim’s first son. This being his second term as Master, leading the Brothers around the Festive Board, as well as becoming a strong role model for incoming Brothers is something he has proven ability to accomplish. Bro. Keim is the eldest grandson of Past Master of Harmonie and D.S.A. recipient, W:. Milton C. Keim. He married his high school sweetheart, Stephanie, in October of 2010, and they have been together since May of 2001. They reside in the town of Tonawanda with their two year old son Lucas, one year old daughter Morgan, and seven year old Boxer/Shepard-mix named Guinness. Bro. Keim has worked in Real Estate in the Western NY area since January of 2010.
