Two new Master Masons Brothers John W. Patterson, Jr. (l) and Luke C. Neal (r) received their membership cards at the meeting of April 15th. The presentation was given by Brother David J. Thomas, Senior Warden center. In order to receive the membership cards new members must satisfactorily complete the new member mentor training sessions. As a new member, Brother Patterson has jumped in as the Lodge Blood Drive Coordinator and has already set up a community blood drive detailed below on this page. We congratulate our new brothers as they begin their journey with the Fraternity.

SIXTY YEARS OF DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE FRATERNITY CELEBRATED AT APRIL 15TH STATED MEETING.
Brother George E. Silvers, P.M. was awarded his Grand Lodge Sixty Year Service Award at the April Stated Meeting of Sunset Lodge No. 623. Brother Silvers was Entered on April 22, 1953. The award was presented by Brother David L. Moore, District Deputy Grand Master at a public presentation following the meeting. Over seventy members, visitors and guests were present to observe this and several other twenty-five, fifty and sixty year award presentations. Brother Silvers is shown with the District Deputy and his daughter, Melody J. Silvers Butterfield pinning on the award. Looking on is her husband Brother Thomas Butterfield a member in Ohio, and son George E. Silvers, Jr.
Also, receiving the sixty year award was Brother John J. Robinson, and posthumously, Brother John J. Storrick, whose daughter Susan Timko accepted the award. Fifty year awards were presented to Brothers Robert W. Agnew, Harvey K. Neel, P.M. and Harry D. Dille. Twenty five year awards were given out to Brothers Joseph A. Donham, P.M., Gary P. Fender, and Alan R. Tedeschi. Brother Joseph N. Talbert received the Grand Lodge Degree Proficiency Award for having conferred all three Degrees. Following the presentations all went downstairs to the fellowship hall for chili and corn bread.
The Blood Drive scheduled for Saturday morning May 18th had to be cancelled due to a lack of donor signups. We may try it again next year if the opportunity should arise.
