Worshipful Master Jeff Bush and Grand Master Rick Myers presented the Artificer Award to Brother Jeff Calaway at Miloma Lodge No. 328 on November 1.
The Artificer Award is part of the ongoing commitment of the Grand Lodge of Nebraska to membership engagement and getting our new members involved in their respective blue lodges. It is the goal of this award to get our newly raised members involved in the lodge and give them a well-rounded exposure to the different things that this fraternity does, from our charity work, to the visits of the Grand Lodge Officers, to helping to support a lodge function, just to name a few.
A newly raised member of a lodge should be given the opportunity to pursue the Artificer Award starting the night he has been raised or shortly thereafter by a communication from the Master or Lodge Secretary. From this starting point the newly raised Master Mason has fourteen months to accomplish the list of requirements to achieve this award.
