On Saturday, November 5, St. Mark’s Lodge No. 44 in Derry conducted its annual Masonic Veteran’s Program.
Among those honored were Cathy DiCampo of Derry News for her service to the community with the Community Builders award. Ms. DiCampo was not able to be present to receive the award and it will be presented at a future date. She is heavily involved with the Derry News Santa Fund which takes in toys, clothing, food, and funds, to help those in the area.
The focus of the program then shifted to honoring our Masonic Veterans for the time they have given to the fraternity. Brother George Hause was presented a 60 year certificate from Most Worshipful Brother John F. Gordon, Grand Master of New Hampshire. In addition, Brother Thomas Latham and Brother David Drowne were also honored and were presented with 25 year pins by Worshipful McClane, Master of St. Mark’s Lodge.
Finally, Most Worshipful John Gordon presented Worshipful Brother Scot Newbury with the Major General John Sullivan Distinguished Service Award in Bronze. The award was in recognition for the service Worshipful Newbury has given, and continues to give, to the Lodge and his community
