Presentation of 50 years jewel to W.Bro. J H Mc Collum, Temple 51
W. Bro John Harold Mc Collum (front centre) joined Temple Masonic Lodge No. 51 on the 4th march 1959 becoming a master mason in November of the same year. A regular attender at his lodge he first became Worshipful master in 1971 and then again sixteen years later in 1987, before taking on the roll of Chaplain in 1995.
In 2000, to commemorate the turn of the century, the lodge members saw fit to honour him again by making him Worshipful Master for the third time. He is the only member in the history of the lodge to have done so.
In recent months W. Bro Mc Collum has suffered from ill health and the members of the lodge wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him again in the near future.
