11/29/2020 Widows Pin Presentation
This afternoon at the Fitchburg and Leominster Shrine Club meeting I presented Denise Vasko a Widows Pin on belhalf of Charles W Moore Lodge. As I spoke about while presenting this, it’s in our Obligation to not only help each other but also each other’s families, something that continues after a Brother has passed on. Club President Karl Edmands with the assistance of Aleppo made Wor Dennis Vasko the first honorary Shriner and Noble of Aleppo in a first of its kind ceremony. Dennis had long planned to be a Shriner after he was Master but sadly passed on before an opportunity occurred.
