Philly Spring Fling

On April 4, members of several Masonic Youth Groups attended a Spring Fling/St. Patrick's Day Dance at the Tacony Masonic Center in Philadelphia. Forty-two members and their prospects from Freedom, Friendship Bray and Northeast Chapters; Penn Valley and Martha B. Mathews Rainbow Assemblies; and Job's Daughters Bethel #14, Lancaster City, and Bethel #17, Hershey. Everyone enjoyed an evening of food, fun, friendship and dancing thanks to some great music provided by D.J. "Dad" Fred Wichterman of Friendship-Bray Chapter. The event was sponsored by several Masonic lodges in the Philadelphia area. Led by Bill "LB" Harner, members of Northeast Chapter decorated Tacony Temple in fine fashion.

Attendees enjoyed pizza, soda, Philadelphia hoagies and snacks in abundance. Door prizes were awarded to several winners of a drawing that included signed autograph pictures of professional sports teams, signed hockey pucks, movie tickets and gift cards to Wendy's restaurants. The dance floor was jumping as the dancers strutted their stuff to a popular selection of dance music.
