For Barker, it’s thrilling to see that, as the lodge grows, its
impact on the community expands, too. Like many of his brothers
at Drytown Lodge who also worked in law enforcement or other
forms of public service, he has pledged to protect and serve all his
life – as a firefighter, assistant sheriff, police chief, and sheriff. The
lodge’s community stewardship is therefore particularly meaning-
ful. Today, Barker is no longer “protecting and serving” with a badge
and a gun – he’s carrying out his responsibili-
ties under the values set forth by Freemasonry.
As the lodge moves forward into its 151st
year, Barker explains, “The only way we
can really be successful as a lodge is if we
are part of the community. Together, we can
make Plymouth a better place.”
