I was a Lodge Secretary for many years and served in a pro-tem capacity when needed as a dual Treasurer along with other Officer stations. After World War II Masonry declined until the after Vietnam War where it got a bump in membership. Remember, this is one Lodge Historians experience. Since then I saw a big decline in the number of 50 year Masons being awarded that honor.

I began to wonder why other milestones other than 25 year were accepted, and one year the Grand Lodge permitted 40 year members to be recognized.

This ring along with the 15 year, 20 year and such attempt to celebrate those time that are not recognized "formally" but no Mason should be not proud to have reached the 10 year mark or further. I started to find that the milestones should celebrate those who got into the Lodge later in life, thus my unique 10, 15, 20, 25, 40 are all newly designed to make those special times sometime by which each Brother should be proud to wear. During WWII, the number of distractions were not anywhere near what they are today, so I find a Brother making a 10 year commitment to the Lodge a thing to celebrate until the next milestone is reached. I am hopeful other Brother's see the same thing I do in our new Society. The Historians will surely see the trend, so be proud to let others know you have walked the walk and traveled afar.
