On Monday evening, MIGM Pat O’Sullivan and MIPGM Paul Smith went to Colebrook for some great presentations. The first was to award Comp. Ron Crane with the Ish Sodi award. The next was to recognize 20 year veterans with Companions Tom Ladd, Dave Collins and Paul Leary. The next was to recognize Companions Dennis Sheridan and Ed Lewis with their 40 year veteran pins. Next we presented the General Grand Council First Responder Awards to Companions Collins and Ladd, and finally to present RE Collins with his Past Grand Commander plaque from 2019-2020. All in all, a wonderful night, and worth the drive through our magnificent foliage.
