Something many of you may not know, but Eddy Arnold initiated his Masonic career in January of 1944 at Lodge 560 in East Nashville and later that year he entered the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. In 1983, he achieved his 32nd degree and then his 33rd degree in 1997. Eddy was extremely proud of these achievements and his long term membership. In fact, his tombstone bears his 33rd degree symbol. At each Memorial Reunion, a deceased 33rd degree member is honored, and today, I had the privilege to briefly address the 206th reunion class named in his honor. I also was able to view his ceremonial White Cap that they have in a display of honor. Many thanks to the fine people at the Grand Lodge in Nashville for their kindness today. He would have been very proud of this recognition.
