M.W. Mark visited W. Brother Douglas R. Boyd at his home to honor him with the presentation of a plaque indicating his status as Secretary Emeritus for Amity Lodge #4. Doug Boyd has been Secretary for Amity Lodge #4 for over the last 40 plus years and he is the first in Amity Lodge #4’s 153 year history to receive such an honor.
The importance of any lodge’s secretary is impossible to overestimate, let alone one who has faithfully and cheerfully served their lodge for over 40 years. Worshipful Douglas R. Boyd served as Master of Amity Lodge #4 in 1970 and served as secretary for +40 years. The bestowment of Secretary Emeritus is well deserved by this outstanding brother.
Amity Lodge #4 is located in Silver City, NV. It was founded 1863 as Silver City Lodge #163 by the Grand Lodge of California and was one of the original 8 lodges that formed the Grand Lodge of Nevada in 1865 (receiving the #4 role number in Nevada).
