8th District Roast For
RWB Doug Boone, DDGM and WB Todd Wilson, DEO


On behalf of myself and the 8th district officers association I would like to say THANK YOU, to everyone that helped support the comedic roast of RWB. Boone and WB. Wilson. The roast was very well attended and a good time was had by all. They have given a lot to our district, and to Masonry in Ohio over the last three years, and deserved the recognition they received.
