Grand Master presents 70 Year Service Pin


Brother JP Hollingsworth & Grand Master of Masons in Mississippi, Butch Britt.

On August 29, 2014, several brethren from Pascagoula Lodge # 419 F & AM accompanied our Most Worshipful Grand Master, Clyde E. Britt, II to the home of Bro. JP Hollingsworth to present him with a 70 year membership pin and certificate. What an accomplishment, and it’s one well worth recognizing and honoring. In addition to being a member of Pascagoula Lodge, Bro. Hollingsworth was also Past Master of Lodge #497 in Mendenhall, MS, a 32nd degree Scottish Rite Mason, and member of Joppa Shrine Temple in Biloxi.

On September 4th, 2014, at the age of 97, having faithfully discharged the great duties which we owe to God, our neighbors, and ourselves, it pleased the Grand Master of the universe to summons Bro. Hollingsworth into His eternal presence. Brethren of Pascagoula Lodge had the honor of performing graveside rites for Bro. Hollingsworth.
