You might have seen him sitting behind a table selling raffle tickets for Shepparton RSL or Goulburn Valley Health.
Or maybe you’ve seen him volunteering at the annual KidsTown family days.
‘‘I like to help the community,’’ Mr Reeves, 84, said.
‘‘It’s a duty of which I am pleased to perform, with thanks to all people associated with the assistance given.’’
When the Freemasons member of 40 years is not out and about in town, he is usually visiting the widows of deceased members, checking in on ill members in hospital and presenting cards for birthdays, anniversaries and bereavements of his lodge’s members and wives.
His dedication to helping fellow Freemasons and the community in general was recognised at a monthly meeting in Tatura.
Mr Reeves was presented with the Most Worshipful Grand Masters Order of Service by John McKernan last Monday.
‘‘This award is the culmination of my Masonic career,’’ Mr Reeves said.
‘‘It’s a wonderful thing to get and very rare indeed — there’s not many of them around.’’
Mr Reeves said he had no plans to stop his community work or his commitment to Freemasonry.
‘‘I like everything about Freemasonry,’’ he said.
‘‘I have enjoyed the friendship, the personal assistance and getting to know so many people.’’
