DENTON — On Oct. 6, Fellowship Chapter 58, Order of the Eastern Star, Price Hall Affiliation, hosted a banquet to celebrate Fred. T. “Freddie” Brummell Sr.’s 38 years of service as the chapter’s worthy patron. He was presented with a past patron pin, apron and plaque, and a certificate of appreciation.
Brummell was initiated into the chapter in the early 1970s. After serving as the warder for a period of time, he was then voted in as the worthy patron in 1975. He first served as worthy patron with his wife, the late Jean L. Brummell.
Brummell has been dedicated in his service not only to the fellowship chapter, but to the fourth district as well. He has participated in the schools of instruction, installed chapter officers, participated on some of the burial teams and supported the civic work of the chapter. He has even provided music at district and grand chapter level activities on occasion.
The banquet was held in the fellowship hall of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Denton. Among the many guests in attendance were Brummell’s immediate and extended families, the grand worthy matron and grand worthy patron of the Myra Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, as well as members of various chapters and lodges in Maryland and Delaware. The Preston Circuit Choir, for which Brummell is the musician, provided the music for the event.
