Four mem­bers of the York Rite were present to make the pre­sen­ta­tion: Broth­ers Gary Pat­ter­son, Robin Lawrie, Reg Jo­drie and Mar­shall Black, a mem­ber of the O.E.S. chap­ter.

This is the first time an award of this na­ture has been pre­sented in Nova Sco­tia by the York Rite, which is given to some­one who has con­trib­uted greatly to East­ern Stars, and Ma­sonry in gen­eral.

Her main project for the year is to make 50 small quilts along with pa­ja­mas for the chil­dren at the Shriners Hos­pi­tal for Sick Chil­dren in Mon­treal.
