On August 29, 2018, Brethren, family and friends gathered at the Masonic Lodge Building in Portsmouth, NH for a joint Masonic Veteran’s Program, co-hosted by St. John’s Lodge No. 1 and St. Andrew’s Lodge No. 56.
Following a delightful meal served in the dining hall, we ventured upstairs to the Lodge Room where the Worshipful Masters of both Lodges greeted guests, and then formally welcomed our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother John E. Lobdell and his distinguished suite.
The Worshipful Masters then introduced those brethren eligible to receive their 25 and 40 year pins. The program was then turned over to the Grand Master. The following honors were bestowed.
50 Year Veteran’s Medals:
Frank E. White – St. Andrew’s Lodge
Leo J. Axtin – St. John’s Lodge
60 Year Veteran’s Plaque: Knute H. Lundgren, Jr. – St. Andrew’s Lodge
