A Milestone for my Grandfather…

I either didn’t know or just simply forgot that my grandfather is a Master Mason with the Freemasons. On Tuesday June 17, 2008, Pa and his brother both received their 50 year pins. They both joined in 1958 following in the footsteps of their father and we all know that Grandpa would be so proud of his sons for reaching this milestone. We all got to join them in the celebration Tuesday night and my mom got to attatch the 50 year pin on Pa’s lapel.

Quite a few people turned up for the event and congratulated both of them. There were a few other masons celebrating their 25th year up to their 44th for a few. Two other masons from the Ridgcrest temple showed up to congratulate Pa and Uncle Clint (why we call him Clint is beyond me because his name is George) and to also invite the Bishop masons to come down and spend a day with them in Ridgecrest.

It was very fun and exciting to see Pa’s face light up when he saw people I don’t think he’s seen in a while.
