It may have been rainy outside, but today within the walls of Rockingham Lodge No. 76 of Candia, the sun was shining brightly. That’s because the Lodge hosted a delightful Veterans and Special Ladies celebration. The event began with a cookout – a real team effort as Brethren and Lodge family members provided hot dogs, hamburgers and all the fixings. The Master, Worshipful Brother Sam Varjabedian then introduced the Special Ladies in attendance and presented a member of the Lodge with his 25-year pin. The Master then turned the proceedings over to our Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother John E. Lobdell.
Our Grand Master began by presenting Brother Ralph B. Stanial with his 50-year Veteran’s medal and pin. M ∴ W ∴ Brother Lobdell then presented Brother Reginald Henshaw with his 70-year award and lapel pin. Brother Henshaw is the current holder of the Boston Post Cane for Candia, being the oldest resident of the town.
Various friends and family members were on-hand to witness these great milestones. Congratulations to Rockingham Lodge No. 76 for brightening our day!
