Holt, Albert (Lodge Devotion - 1975)

A surprise appreciation night and dinner was held Wednesday June 25, honoring Albert Holt of Neillsville. Sponsored by the Blue Lodge of the Neillsville Masonic Temple, the event was a testimonial to Brother Holt’s outstanding service and devotion to the Masonic order.

Albert Holt joined the Masons over 25 years ago, and since that time has worked his way through the many bodies within the lodge, becoming a 32nd Degree Mason in 1971. He headed many of the bodies during that time and was especially known for his proficiency in such areas. He also worked with many of the area lodges, as well as with many men at his home lodge, teaching them various work that is required to be committed to memory.

His immediate family members are well known for their Masonic work as well. His wife, Fern, and his four daughters have all held offices, and have worked many hours in the Eastern Star and Job’s Daughters.

The program for the evening followed a “This Is Your Masonic Life” format. Representing the various of Masonry with which Holt is affiliated were: Milo Mabie for Blue Lodge; Arnold Works for Chapter; Ivan Lauscher for Commandary; Emile Albrecht for Eastern Star; Ed Heller for Council; Lave Hendrickson for consistory; and Earl Bruhn for KYCH. They gave brief accounts of Holt’s association and work within each group.

At the conclusion of the program, Holt was presented with a plaque from Neillsville Blue Lodge No. 163 by the present master of the lodge, LeRoy John. It was inscribed: “Presented to Albert Holt – in appreciation of outstanding service to the crafts.”

Over 115 people attended the recognition party to testify to their affection for this outstanding Mason. Wayne Grap served as master of ceremonies for the evening. Jerry Opelt was in charge of arrangements.
