Sunday, March 19, 2017: Members of our Masonic family gathered today at the Bektash Shrine Center in Concord, NH to witness the Public Investiture of five Legion of Honor recipients. The day’s event was organized and directed by New Hampshire DeMolay.
The day commenced with a presentation by the New Hampshire Council of Deliberation of Knight Templar Inquisition and Complete Absolution: The Proceedings of the Chinon Parchment ©. A Public Investiture was then held, with the following being risen to the Dignity of the DeMolay Legion of Honor:
Michael G. Athanasopoulos
Russell S. Bell
Herbert S. Carpenter IV
Scott M. Ayen
Thomas X. Tsirimokos
Following the Investiture, our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother John F. Gordon was recognized as an honorary member of the International Supreme Council, DeMolay. A delightful meal followed the formal proceedings.
The day was a tremendous success, in large part thanks to the organizational skills of NH DeMolay Executive Officer, George Baldwin. Great job George! And congratulations to our most recent Legionnaires and our Grand Master.
