Half a century spent serving Freemasonry
Earlier this month, Freemason Ivan Anderson was presented with a 50-year service award.
It was given to Mr Anderson at the venue where he was initiated in 1961, Ruahine Lodge in Woodville.
Past District Grand Master John Peryer made the presentation and congratulatory messages were received from friends and fellow Freemasons in Mt Maunganui and overseas.
The function was held in conjunction with the lodge’s 125th year jubilee dinner.
