On May 21, 2014, Russ Hilliard was inducted into the “Loyal Order of the Rock” by the Rockingham County Bar Association. The award for the “Loyal Order of the Rock” was reestablished in 2004 to honor those members who have practiced law for 30 years or more and who have demonstrated their love of the law through their dedication to their clients, community and colleagues.
The induction ceremonies were held during the Annual Meeting of the County Bar, and followed by a “roast” of the inductee. Russ is shown here with a genuine granite “sea rock” extracted from an undisclosed location along the NH Seacoast. The legend of the Order was read aloud immediately prior to the introduction of the inductees to keep the legend alive.
