At the 6:30 dinner, Worshipful Master Brian Wright presented Bob D. Davis with a hand carved wooden plaque as a thank you for serving as lodge secretary from 2006-2011. There also was a decorated cake in his honor.

Lodge secretary, Don Reef, read Young’s Masonic history, which included holding several offices in the lodge and serving as Worshipful Master in 1967. He is an International Shrine Clown and has performed in numerous Kokomo parades over the years. He is a 33rd degree Mason.

Young grew up in Burlington and currently resides in the Kokomo area. His guests at the ceremony were friend Ida Mae Davis of Kokomo, brother-in-law Harvey Sutter of Durand, Mich.; and niece Mary Anne Judson of Gaines, Mich.
