Celebrates 91st Birthday Anniversary

Bridgewater Bulletin, August 2, 1939.

Lunenburg, July 31 – George Myra, a member of Rising Sun Lodge, No. 59, I.O.O.F., for 47 years, celebrated his 91st. birthday anniversary on Monday last, and was agreeably surprised by a visit from a number of brother Odd Fellows who called to extend felicitations. Although completely surprised the aged nonagenarian rose tothe occasion and soon was quite at ease regaling his visitors with reminiscences of his early sea-going experiences. Apart from almost total blindness, Mr. Myra is in excellent health with a very retentive memory for happenings of by-gone days. With the Noble Grand of the lodge, C.E. Young, at the piano, a hearty sing-song was enjoyed,after which refreshments were served included in which was the proverbial birthday cake. The social time was brought to a close by the singing of the Ode of the Order and prayer by the chaplain, Dennis Eisenhauer.
