Aaron F. Zahn
Worshipful Brother Aaron Zahn was born 2/13/1981 in Sioux Falls, SD. He grew up in Worthing, SD, and graduated from Lennox High School in 1999. He received an Associates Degree in Architectural Engineering Technology from Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls. He pursued a career in drafting and project management. He now works from home in a sales and project management position for a construction company based in Minnesota that specializes in the construction of Grain Storage and Handling facilities across the country. His work affords the flexibility to devote time to what is most important, his family. Aaron and his wife Lisa have one son Caleb (12) and one daughter Madeline (9). Aaron is an active member of his church, having served on the church council, teaching Sunday School, and serving on the Property and Preschool Boards.
WB Aaron was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in 2002 in Worthing Lodge #141, where he is a life member. He was elected Master of Worthing Lodge in 2009 and has served as its Secretary / Treasurer since 2010. He is a plural member of Minnehaha Lodge #5, York Rite Bodies and El Riad Shrine, all in Sioux Falls. WB Aaron has previously served as Grand Standard Bearer, Junior Grand Steward, and Junior Grand Deacon for the Grand Lodge of South Dakota as well as serving on the Committees on Public Awareness and the SDCHIP Committee. He is very honored to be serving as Junior Grand Warden for our Grand Lodge of South Dakota. Aaron is a proud member of the El Riad Shrine Roadrunners and Classie Autos and is Secretary for the Classie Autos.
The Zahn family has a long-standing history in Worthing Lodge, including Aaron’s Great Grandfather Lloyd Lind, Father George Zahn, Brother Avery Zahn, and Uncle Al Zahn (El Riad Shrine Past Potentate). One of the proudest moments was when son Caleb Zahn recently served as Master Squire for the Sioux Falls Manor of the Order of Squires. It has been a very satisfying journey to be able to be an active member in lodge as well as having his family involved with events like SDCHIP, Breakfast with Santa, and selling snow cones and cotton candy at the Shrine circus (something Caleb can’t wait for every year!). Aaron looks forward to continuing to be able to give back to our wonderful organization that has provided so many lifelong friendships and experiences as well as making our communities better for future generations.
WB Aaron Zahn has been nominated for the office of Senior Grand Warden by Worthing Lodge #141, Minnehaha Lodge #5, Resurgam Lodge #31, and Sunrise #211
