Geneva Masonic Lodge No. 79 received the Rock Maul Award at the Nebraska Masons annual conference held in Kearney. This award is given by the Grand Master, upon the recommendation of the Grand Lodge Awards Committee to the lodge whose works represent the best all-around lodge in Nebraska for 2012. This is the fourth time Geneva Lodge has won this award since 1980.
The Geneva Lodge also received one of three awards for most money raised in the Change for the Troops in the Total Amount Raised category. The funds are then used by The Grand Lodge to buy phone cards for servicemen and women who are deployed to countries in the Middle East.
Those receiving the awards at the conference were 2012 officers W.M. Dan Aspegren, S.W. Kevin Bonin, and Brad Stephens.
