‘Sunday in the park with Germans’

Additional reasons why the Grand Lodge of New York is the center of the Masonic universe in the greater metropolitan area:

  • On Sunday, Grand Master’s Day at Tappan will showcase DeWint House, one of George Washington’s headquarters during the Revolution. Owned and operated by the GLNY, it is a treasure of a historic site. Click here for photos from last year’s Grand Master’s Day. Hopefully the weather will be just as nice. (Brunch again will be served at Old ’76 House at 11:30 a.m. Cost: $25 per person, payable at the door.)

  • And later on Sunday, the Ninth Manhattan District (the one with the German lodges) will host the 120th Annual Traubenfest (Grape Festival) at German Masonic Park in Tappan, only a short ride from DeWint House. 89 Western Highway. Cost: only $5 per person. Parking is free.

See what I mean? Of course not everything is perfect in New York. For example, the Magpie Mason will appear at the lectern of American Lodge of Research on Friday, October 29 and, believe me, no one will earn points for that debacle, but on the whole good things are happening there.
