This week we are honored to congratulate our very own Brother Dave Tischart on becoming naturalized as an American citizen!
Although he is a new citizen, he has a long history of our country including supporting our armed forces. Brother Dave first immigrated to the United States in 1998. He initially settled in Arizona. After a few years he joined an electrical union and moved to San Diego. Then, in 2005 he went to Iraq to support our troops as an electrician contractor. During that time, he traveled extensively throughout Asia before returning to San Diego. He eventually moved to Morgan Hill in 2016 and remained a resident until retiring this year in April.
Brother Dave was initiated an Entered Apprentice on February 28, 2019 with South Valley #187. He was passed to the degree of Fellowcraft on September 12, 2019. He was raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on January 30, 2020. On February 7, 2022, he affiliated with Golden Rule #479 and became a life member with our lodge on May 9, 2022.
Since his retirement, Brother Dave has become a true Traveling Man, journeying all across the country in his RV. We are so honored that he still calls our lodge home and returns as often as he is able.
Brother Dave’s naturalization ceremony will be on Friday, July 15. His love for the craft and for our nation are humbling and the source of so much pride for our entire Fraternity!
Please join us in congratulating Brother Dave!
