WB Jeff Honeycutt was awarded the Frederick Dalcho Certificate of Merit at the South Carolina Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons Banquet on April 26th 2018. WB Jeff was Past Master of Inman Masonic Lodge in 2005, Past Grand Steward in 2014, and was appointed Senior Grand Deacon for the Grand Lodge for 2018. He, along with RWB Tommy Watson, Past Master of Irving Southworth Masonic Lodge and PDDGM of the 21st District were the two recipients from Spartanburg County for this prestigious award.
The SC AFM Grand Lodge website offers the following description: “The award is named for Rev. Frederick Dalcho, MD, who was the dominant figure in Freemasonry in South Carolina in the early 1800s. In the year 1807, Dr. Dalcho published, under the sanction of the Grand Lodge of Ancient York Masons of South Carolina, The Ahiman Rezon. Since that time, the book has been revised and augmented, and continues today as the Book of Constitutions in South Carolina. Rev Dr. Dalcho served as Grand Chaplain, and was one of the founders of the Supreme Council 33rd Degree, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, the Southern Jurisdiction of the USA.”
This Certificate of Merit is given to a small number of SC Masons each year in recognition for their exemplary service to the Craft. Congratulations, WB Jeff, on this honor!
