Tree Hits Power Line at Masonic Lodge
On Tuesday, July 28, at about noon, members of the Masonic Lodge in downtown Lexington were notified by the City that a very large tree limb had fallen on the main power line for their building. Reuel Cooper, a member of the Lodge, said, "There weren't any high winds that caused the tree to split. It was just rotted from age. The drought probably hasn't helped with the condition of the tree either."
As a result of the damage to the building, part of the building's electrical power was interrupted, making some fear the "famous" Thursday morning breakfast would also be interrupted. However, dispite the fact that they lost the contents of one refrigerator and complete use of their microwave, they were able to fix the problem and served breakfast just like normal last Thursday morning.
