Four members of the Masonic Hall and Home Board of Trustees, George Steven Getman, President; David Stoy, Secretary, David Spencer and Kurt Ott visited with several hundred Brothers and their wives in mid-January. Accompanied by Grand Master William Thomas and Deputy Grand Master Jeff Williamson, as well as Grand Secretary Paul Rosen, awards for years of service were handed out. It was also a time for fellowship and to reconnect with old friends. One of the best moments was in Palm Beach, when Brother Joseph LeBlang who was a Masonic Home Kid , received his 60 years of service award. Joe and his brother Albert lived at the Utica Facility from January 14th, 1939 to June 20th 1943. We were proud to share the day with him and look forward to his future visits to the Utica Campus and Round Lake!
