50-Year Award

I have commented before on the thrill to be present when a Mason receives a longevity award. At the Annual Communication, I had the pleasure to arrange for the presentation of a 50-year award to Past Grand Master Ralph Hultquist and a 25-year award to his son, John Hultquist.

Shown in the photo are District Representative Vern Schwalbe, yours truly, PGM Ralph and John.

It's pretty unusual to make such presentations at an annual communication, but for Masons who have contributed so mightily to our Grand Lodge, it is only appropriate.
