It was announced in May that Wor. Clint Black, PM, was to be awarded the Hiram Award, the highest honor that can be presented to a Mason.  His willingness to help the Lodge and his Brothers in every way and even serve as Master in both 1999 and 2009 shows his strong commitment to Masonry, his community and his fellow Brothers.

This night, September 27, 2011, the celebration took place.  When asked what the dress for the evening would be, Wor. Black said he wanted a "Western" night.  That just added to the fun and all in attendance seemed to enjoy the evening.
