Presentation of the 70-Year Pin and Certificate to Bro. Lorne Bowman

On Tuesday, June 21, 2022 Bro. Lorne Bowman received his 70-Year pin and certificate. After the meeting was concluded, members of Bro. Bowman’s family were invited into the lodge room to observe the presentation ceremony. Bro. Bowman actually has 71 years of service, but we were unable to present him with his pin and certificate last year because of pandemic-related restrictions. He advised the brethren and guests in attendance that is looking forward to receiving his 75-year pin in four years.
