Awards and Honors
As Benjamin Franklin once said: "Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are in the dealings with one another; sympathy begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason."
While brotherly love and masonic virtues are awards of the highest honor, there are times where brothers have far exceeded the length of their cabletow and are truly deserving of additional recognition and honors.
