On April 28, 2006, five Brethren traveled to Lewistown,
Pa., to present a certificate to Bro. Sherman Eugene
Good (shown front, center) commemorating his 75
years as a Mason. They were, from left to right, back row:
Bros. Walter P. Bobb, W.M. of Middleburg Lodge No. 619;
David L. Reiner, District Deputy Grand Master for District 46;
and Gary E. Narehood, P.M., of Middleburg Lodge No. 619.
Front row, left to right: Bros. Michael Timblin and Gerald
Botdorf, also of Middleburg Lodge No. 619.
On June 8, 2006, Bro. Silas Booz White received
the Grand Lodge 75-Year Certificate in Harry A.
Houseman Lodge No. 717, Bristol, Pa. He was
escorted to the Altar of Freemasonry by his grandsons, Bros.
Aaron Ramson White, P.M., and Jeremy Booz White, both of
Jordan-Martin Lodge No. 673. The award was presented by
Charles T. Graham, District Deputy Grand Master for District
D. Upon receiving the award, Bro. White commented that
when he was a boy, he knew Harry Houseman. Since Bro.
Houseman died prior to the lodge's constitution in 1922, this
created an interesting perspective for everyone present.
