 FIFTY YEAR GOLD BUTTONS

 

 

                  At the 79th annual communication of the Grand Lodge of Masons in California, opened at the City of San Francisco Tuesday, Oct. 9, 1928 and terminating Friday, Oct. 12, 1928, it was recommended by Grand Master Will H. FISCHER that the Grand Secretary be authorized and directed to prepare a design for and to strike off a sufficient number of buttons, made from the pure gold of California's hills, and forward to each Lodge within the jurisdiction, one of the buttons for each fifty year old Mason on the roll; that the Committee on Ritual be authorized and directed to supply the Masters of Lodges with a brief ritual or form of ceremony in order that each of the veteran Masons might be impressively presented with a lasting evidence of the esteem of the Grand Lodge of California and the love and affection of his brethren.

                 The recommendation of the Grand Master was adopted and by resolution of Grand Lodge the privilege of receiving the token was limited to those who had been members of Lodges within our jurisdiction for fifty years.

                 At the 80th annual communication of Grand Lodge held from Oct. 8 to Oct. 11, 1929, the privilege of wearing the fifty year token was extended to members of Lodges in our jurisdiction who have been Master Masons in good standing for fifty years or more.
