W.B. Kevin Scheele, Grand Orator, had the pleasure of presenting three year pins at York Lodge No. 56 on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Brethren and guests enjoyed a dinner served by members of the lodge. Following dinner and dessert, all present entered the lodge room for the presentation ceremonies. The honorees included Bro. Larry Harding, a 50-year Mason, and Bro. Fred Branz and Bro. Vic Michel celebrated 65 years in Masonry. W.B. Scheele felt especially honored to present the two 65-year pins, as Bro. Branz is a neighbor of his and Bro. Michel is the current Bronze Jordan Medal holder for York Lodge No. 56. Unable to attend the ceremonies were Bro. Ben Kohl (25 years) and Bro. Jack Moomey (50 years). Congratulations to each of these Brothers for their combined 255 years of dedication to Masonry!
