Brother Bob was elected to Honorary State Master Councilor during his term as Grand Master and was elected Honorary Member of the International Order of Jobs Daughters.

The Masonic Memrobillia in Bob's office will take you back to 1992 and the present, as there are 49 Honorary Membership certificates hanging on the wall and a trophy case filled with many gifts of love that Bob received in 1992. It is very evident that Bob served this Gentle Craft as Grand Master and he can tell you where each gift came from.
