It is a period of big anniversaries in New York City Freemasonry: 250th for I.R.A. No. 2, the bicentennial of Columbian Council No. 1, 130th of Cleopatra’s Needle, The Big 8-0 for The American Lodge of Research next spring, and the centennial celebration of Masonic Hall itself in a few weeks. The headquarters of the Grand Lodge of New York stands tall at 71 West 23rd Street in Manhattan. A wonderful place it is, and a party is being planned for the occasion.
Sunday, December 5 at 2 p.m. inside the Grand Lodge room (Third Floor).
There will be a ceremonial re-enactment of the cornerstone-laying, as well as a re-dedication of Masonic Hall.
