On 23 October, Lady Ann, MWB Russ Reno and I attended the annual recognition night dinner at Centennial Lodge No. 326 in Omaha. This dinner not only recognizes the Past Masters of the Lodge but also is a time to award year pins and other awards.
I had the honor of presenting Bro. James Wolfe with the Daniel Beard Scouting award. This award is given to a Mason that has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help the Scouts. In fact, the list of Brother Jim’s accomplishments in both Scouting and Masonry is overwhelming! He truly deserves this honor.
I also had the honor to award a 50 year pin to WB John Waden. WB John is another one of those Masons whose devotion to the Craft and accomplishments in the Craft are staggering. MWB Russ worked with WB John for many years in Job’s and was honored to be picked by WB John to put the 50 year pin on his lapel.
Great night, great food, great fellowship! Congratulations and well done, Brethren of Centennial Lodge!
