During the annual communication of the Grand Lodge of Indiana, two very distinguished Freemasons were recognized for their life-long dedication to the principals of the Craft.
M. W. Gail N. Kemp, PGM and Active Emeritus member of the AASR, NMJ, was recognized for his years of dedicated service to the Masonic Renewal Committee of North America. He was presented with a plaque of appreciation by M.W. Roger S. VanGorden, a core committee member of the MRC.
M.W. Brother Van Gorden also made a presentation of a plaque recognizing Ill. J. William McNaughton, Past Sovereign Grand Commander of the AASR, NMJ, as the recipient of the Jack Jones Memorial Humanitarian Award for 2020. This award is presented annually by the MRC to a brother Mason who has best displayed the great character and principled values of the late Ill. Jack H. Jones, Past Imperial Potentate of Shriners’ International.
The Masonic Renewal Committee is extremely proud to have been able to recognize these two brothers for their accomplishments and continuing service to Freemasons everywhere.
