PGM Don Severson Hiram Award
Past Grand Master Donald Severson was awarded the Hiram Award - the highest honor that a lodge can bestow upon one of its brothers - by Worshipful Master Mark Moriarty of Arcana Lodge No. 187.
Many brothers and friends commented on PGM Severson's service to Arcana Lodge, the Grand Lodge of Minnesota and the Masonic Cancer Center Fund.
One brother present commented that after serving as Grand Master, MWB Severson continued his service to Masonry in many, many capacities. That observation is absolutely correct. As I reflect on my Masonic life after Grand Master, MWB Don's example is one to be emulated.
