New Marine Corps Museum Presented
with Commemorative Tun Tavern

The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania was pleased and honored to present the new National Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, Va., with one of its limited edition commemorative Tun Tavern models. Philadelphia's Tun Tavern is very significant to both the U.S. Marine Corps and Pennsylvania Freemasonry, as each of these institutions had its 18th century origins within this famous structure. Pictured, left, with the displayed Tun Tavern model, is the president of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, Lieutenant General Ron Christmas (retired) with costumed museum docent Robert La Chance.

Last fall, another Tun Tavern model was presented by Ronald Aungst, Sr., R.W. Grand Master, accompanied by the Masonic Library and Museum of Pennsylvania's executive director Andrew Zellers-Frederick and curator, Bro. Dennis Buttleman, Jr., to the 33rd Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, General Michael W. Hagee, at the Pentagon.

Individuals interested in this special commemorative item are encouraged to call the Temple Treasures Gift Shop at (215) 988-1973 very soon, as there are few remaining in stock.
