Being community-minded almost is a way of life for 96-year-old Harold Pomeroy.
Since joining the Freemasons — a fraternal international organization — at age 21, Pomeroy has been a Mason longer than a Rotarian, husband, father, Army man, and handy man.
Sequim Masonic Lodge plans to honor Pomeroy this May for serving 75 years in the group.
A few months way from the honor, Pomeroy — in a bright green Hawaiian shirt with a pattern of elephants — said he’s in good health and spirits.
“I’m very, very fortunate,” Pomeroy said, before knocking on his wooden coffee table. “Especially at 96 years old. I’m going to be 100 years old in four more years.”
