Grand Lodge of South Carolina Explores the Temple

R.W. Grand Master Aungst poses with American Revolutionary War General Friedrich Wilhelm August Baron von Steuben, as portrayed by historian Bro. David Valuska, of Lodge No. 377. Dr. Valuska, a Professor Emeritus from Kutztown University, spoke at the Masonic Temple on Oct. 31 about the baron's life as a Freemason and trainer of Bro. and General Washington's Continental Army. The event was sponsored through the Pennsylvania Humanities Council.

R.W. Grand Master Aungst and his wife, Norma (front, center), welcomed friends from the Grand Lodge of South Carolina to the Temple in November. The group spent half a day touring the Temple, enjoying lunch in the John Wanamaker Dining Room and exploring historical documents pertaining to their Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania on display in The Masonic Library and Museum.
