One of the highlights of my year as Master of Long Beach Lodge was to give a Hiram Award to a brother who, year after year has displayed his devotion to our Lodge and to our beloved fraternity, unselfishly giving his time and energy for the betterment of our lodge without asking for anything in return. On June 2nd, we made it happen! We had a wonderful Hiram Award Ceremony for Bro. Matt Vander Horck. We had a beautiful spread of Hor d’ Oeuvre and a fantastic dinner after the ceremony. Thank you everyone for coming and thank you to the Hiram Committee for choosing a deserving awardee. Job well done my brothers!

Congratulations to Brandon Stitt on being Passed to the Degree of Fellowcraft.

At our July Stated Meeting there will be a Golden Veterans Award presentation at the Lodge for Brother Edgar Moran.

Also, at our July Stated Meeting, we are expecting a guest from Hong Kong, his name is Joseph Poon, Senior Deacon of AF & AM Lodge Erin, No. 463. Please join me in welcoming our traveling brother. See you soon!
