The November 20 meeting of the Flint Hill Masonic Lodge #810 F. &A.M. in Bessemer was a special occasion.

The Brothers of Flint Hill Lodge paid tribute to Brother William Frank Burridge, a beloved member for 60-years. This honor occurs only once in a man’s lifetime.

John Meadows is master of the Lodge and Dwight Headrick is Lodge secretary.

Following a delicious Thanksgiving supper, the Brothers and their guests recognized Brother Frank, 91 for 60-years of service to the fraternity.

Brother Gery Hewett presided at the ceremony.

Brother Randy Davenport presented the gold pin and certificate.

Age is the crowning glory of man and we look to age for wisdom.

A pillar and now a rock of the lodge, Brother Frank was joined by his daughters, Tracy Cochran and Cherri Martin.
