On Tuesday, April 17th the members of Benevolent Lodge No. 7 gathered in Milford, NH to honor their Masonic Veterans. The evening began with a delightful meal served in the dining room. While there, Most Worshipful Brother John E. Lobdell, Grand Master of the Freemasons in the State of New Hampshire honored Brother David B. Hinckley by presenting him with the Major General John Sullivan distinguished service medal in silver. Attendees made their way upstairs to the Lodge room where the Worshipful Master formally received our Grand Master and his suite.
Following the Worshipful Master recognizing 25 and 40 year Veterans, the Master then turned the gavel over to our Grand Master. M.W. Brother Lobdell then recognized the 50 year Veterans in attendance – Worshipful Brother Joe W. Rush and Brother Gordon E. Stockman. Our Grand Master then recognized the 60 year Veterans in attendance – Brothers Eddy W. Whitcomb and William B. Newbold. Congratulations to Benevolent Lodge No. 7 and their distinguished honorees.
