Governor Rendell Receives 32°, AASR
On Thursday, September 23, 2004, an entourage of Scottish Rite 33° Masons, and Grand Lodge Officers, accompanied the R.W. Grand Master, William Slater II, 33°, and Walter E. Webber, 33°, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction, to the Office of the Governor of Pennsylvania, Bro. Edward G. Rendell.
The purpose of the visit was a pleasant one.
The Sovereign Grand Commander conducted a brief ceremony with the aid of those present, thereby making Governor Rendell a 32° Scottish Rite Mason. Bro. Slater congratulated him for his many years of faithful public service both as Mayor of Philadelphia, and currently as Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Following the presentation by the Sovereign Grand Commander, the R.W. Grand Master, Bro. William Slater II, presented the Governor with his 2004 Grand Master's medallion. A luncheon followed the ceremony.
Governor Rendell was initiated in Athelstan Lodge No. 482 on September 6, 1983 and is the 32nd Governor to be a Freemason.
