The Thomas Hayward Award

Orlando York Rite Bodies had the first Thomas Hayward Award Banquet yesterday, October 18th 2014, during the Festive Table organized by the three bodies: Eureka Chapter No.7, Orlando Council No.5 and Olivet Commandery No.4.

We had a fantastic rib-eye steak dinner prepared by our Companion Michael T. Rudd and his lovely wife.

Three awards were given, in appreciation of continued dedication and service to York Rite Bodies of Florida, to the Companions Ricardo Parente, James D. Dickenson and J. Michael Harman. The fourth award will be given to Companion Gerald Favor on the next York Rite meeting since he could not attend the banquet.
