He has held several coveted roles and titles, not just in our council, but in the 4th degree Assembly and in the District level.  Bro. George is truly the stalwart of our council, and to have someone like him in our midst is truly an honour. He is loved by all.  His constant support and guidance to all of us, leaves us with nothing but praise and admiration for him".
