Hiram Award Recipients

The Hiram Award

The Hiram Award is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a Brother by his Masonic Lodge and the Grand Lodge of California.  It is specifically intended to be presented to a Brother who has unselfishly given of his time, talents and energy for the betterment of his Lodge and Freemasonry, or who has brought credit to the Craft by his other endeavors.

It is the official recognition for a Brother following many years of devoted service to his Lodge and to Masonic principles in general, and who, year after year, displays his devotion without receiving special recognition or special honor, and does it in an exemplary manner.  Each Brother below has been so recognized, and we are grateful for their dedication to our Lodge.
