Grapevine, Texas (March 2012): The 2012 Grapevine Masonic Lodge Community Builder Award has been given to Sheela Kadam and Alexandra Evans, owners of The British Emporium. This prestigious award comes during the store's 20th anniversary year.
The award was presented at a dinner and ceremony at The Grapevine Masonic Lodge, with members, family and friends present. Speeches were made by Worshipful Master Neal Spencer, former Master Bruce Rider, Colin O'Brian and Eli Mahan.
A rousing speech entitled 'The Community Ties That Bind' was given by Ms. Kadam during the event. According to Ms. Kadam, "we are very honoured to receive this award, which is the highest award a masonic lodge can give a non-mason. We are very touched to receive it in 2012 - our 20th anniversary year, and the year of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and also the London Olympics."
The Masons' Community Builder Award program is designed to recognize and show members' appreciation for outstanding community-oriented achievements of hard working and dedicated non-Masons who serve others with no expectation of reward. It reflects members' pride in their good works and gratitude for their making and building the community into a better place for all people to live, work, and play. Great care is taken in the selection of a recipient.

This award-winning store is well known for its British community and cultural events, hosting VIP visitors & celebrities, British carshows and provides a meeting place for expatriate Britons and anglophiles alike. The store is owned by Sheela Kadam & Alexandra Evans who believe in giving back to the community that welcomed them to Grapevine back in 1992.
