was announced at the April 7th Stated Meeting Dinner that Wor. Steven
E. Laurvick, PM, was selected to be honored as the recipient of
Hiram Award for 2015. Recognizing his dedication to Samuel Warren
Hackett Lodge and the craft, the Hiram Award committee knows that
Brother Laurvick is deserving of
this prestigious honor. To
be chosen the
Hiram Award recipient is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a
Mason, aside from being elected to, and serving as, the Master of his
Brother Laurvick was
raised a Master Mason in September of 2003. He has been very active in the
Lodge even though his work causes him to travel between San Diego and Las Vegas, NV quite frequently. He served S.W. Hackett Lodge as an officer from 2005 in its many "chairs" and served as its Master in 2011.
The date of the celebration was May 30, 2015 and some pictures of the dinner and event are below.
