Master Builders

  •  

    In 1950, the Master Builder of Men Award was created by the National Executive Board as the highest honor that FarmHouse can bestow upon one of its alumni members. Neither position, wealth, nor occupation enter into consideration for the award but simply what he has done to help others.
