The organization exists to recognize those who have contributed extraordinary service to the Blue Lodge and to the bodies of the York Rite.
Members of the Yeoman of York are distinguished by a black beret, with a combined York Rite bodies patch. (The image above is a stylized version by Indiana's talented WBro. Steven McKim.)
Thanks especially to Brother Carson Smith for proposing me for this honor.
I previously posted incorrect information about the qualifications for this group.
