by Right Worshipful Brother Kenneth Clay, Senior Grand Warden
November 19, 2016: Today during the 158th Semi-Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire, Most Worshipful Brother John F. Gordon took time out from the program to honor a distinguished Brother. MW Gordon presented Right Worshipful Thomas A. Welman with the Jeremy Ladd Cross Medal – the highest form of Blue Lodge recognition that can be afforded a Masonic brother in the State of New Hampshire.
In making this presentation, our Grand Master cited Brother Welman’s numerous Masonic accomplishments, the most recent of which was chairman of the Constitutional Review Committee. After more than 5 years of active work in making our Grand Lodge constitution and manual more user friendly, and introducing a new rules and regulations document, today these documents were formally adopted by vote of Grand Lodge. A hearty congratulations to our dear Brother!
