‘Washington inauguration celebration’


And speaking of Freemasons who have been American presidents (see post below), it soon will be time again for Grand Lodge’s re-enactment of George Washington’s first inauguration as chief executive of the United States. And, man, what would you give to have him back again?! From the publicity:

Tuesday, April 30
11:45 a.m.
Federal Hall
Wall Street, Manhattan

A re-enactment of the inauguration of George Washington as the first president of the United States of America, performed by Freemasons of the State of New York. The event is held on the anniversary of the inauguration on April 30, 1789. We proclaim our heritage by honoring our Founding Fathers and the Heroes of 1776, many of whom were Free and Accepted Masons.

The sponsor of this event is the George Washington Inaugural Reenactment Committee of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York, under the chairmanship of RW Martin Kanter, RW J. Scott Nagel and RW Teodulo Henriquez. MW Richard Kessler, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York and other elected and appointed Grand Lodge officers will attend. The Color Guard will be provided by the Masonic War Veterans, Sons of the Revolution of New York, and the Knickerbocker Greys.

We’d love to have as many Brothers as possible from your lodge join and support us on this great occasion. The ceremony lasts approximately 45 minutes. We invite all brothers, friends, and families to join us in a hospitality room for refreshments after the event. There is no charge for the event, but we do appreciate donations for refreshments onsite. RSVP here.
