This year's big event was the Annual Pizza Challenge to support the Tommy Fund here in New Haven. On a hot day in July, Brothers of our lodge and many neighboring lodges, with many friends and family members, came out to eat Inferno Pizza and enjoy the day. Chris Beuton and his Pizza Truck came and supplied all the pizza for the day. Porcini International and many other local businesses and charitable organizations helped by supplying drinks and other food. We're proud to be able to help our friends at the Tommy Fund and support they're important mission!
The Annual DeMolay Grand Master's Class was held in February at Hiram Lodge #1 in honor of our own Brother, Bruce Belmore the MW Grand Master of Masons in CT. Close to 100 people attended the two degrees performed by the State officers and young men of DeMolay. Four new members where initiated and the day was capped off with the Flower Talk given by the Deputy State Master Councilor. The boys were in perfect form as the two degrees were presented in excellent form. Thanks to all the brothers who attended and congratulations to Bruce!
At a recent awards night at Trumbull Lodge #22, our own RW Brother Sal Ferrigno received the Pierpont Edwards Award in Bronze for distinguished Masonic Service. Brother Ferrigno's mother lodge is Trumbull #22 and he is a 22 year member of Hiram Lodge #1. Pictured in the photo are other Peirpont Medal holders who came to support Brother Ferrigno that night including RWB Bob Moon and MWB Bruce Bellmore who presented the honor. Brother Sal's family was also in attendance along with close to 100 others for the occasion. Since this was a lodge Awards Nights there were also incremental pins and a First Responder award given out. It was a great night for Masonry! Congrats to all.
