Masonic and community awards event

By Thomas VanEtten 

Those Masons at Cannon Memorial Lodge really know how to thank the community. With a large crowd in attendance, they were honored to present what they called “local, unsung heroes” with a plaque of recognition. The event was labeled “Ladies Night: A Community and Masonic Awards Night” which allowed the masons to thank award nominees from all over the city, within their own Lodge, as well as their significant others for their support.

Each recipient was chosen by their respective organization, and submitted to the Masons as a way to recognize that one individual that went above and beyond in the community. As another way to thank the honorees and their families, dinner was provided by the Lodge.
