The John Daily family, owners of the Big M Supermarket in Alex Bay, will be presented with the DeWitt Clinton Award for exceptional voluntary community service on Sunday, Nov. 13 at the Inn at Bonnie Castle Resort & Marina. The award will be presented by Alexandria Lodge #297 Free & Accepted Masons in concert with the NYS Grand Lodge.
DeWitt Clinton (1769-1828) was a man who dedicated his life to service, both as a political leader in the early days of New York State, and in his tenure as Grand Master of Masons from 1806-1819. Clinton’s political service included the establishment of public education; the advocacy of the abolition of slavery; and support of programs that encouraged application of new technologies, notably steam navigation and the creation of the Erie Canal System. The Dewitt Clinton award is presented to people outside the Masonic world whose activities in community service demonstrate principles and practices held in high esteem by Freemasons, as embodied by the example set by our Past Grand Master, Dewitt Clinton. Jeffrey M. Williamson, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York will be in attendance to present the award.
Reservations for the dinner and program are $35.
