Queens for a Day

The ladies of the Star Points Building and Valley Care Masonic Center at the Masonic Village at Sewickley were treated to an "Enchanted Evening" earlier this year featuring fancy attire, delectable cuisine and regal entertainment surrounded by elegant décor. The event was the work of the William Slater II Master Mason's Club at the Masonic Village at Sewickley and the generosity of program sponsors including 20 local Masonic lodges (see names to the right) and the Advisory Committee of the Order of the Eastern Star.

On Jan. 28, 2009, the ladies, many of whom are wives or widows of Masons or members of the Order of the Eastern Star, will once again receive royal treatment at the second annual "Enchanted Evening." This event had a lasting effect on last year's guests as conversations about the evening continued for days afterwards. Such a program takes great commitment from the Master Mason's Club, Masonic Village staff and volunteers from various Masonic organizations, including youth groups and Order of the Eastern Star members.

For lodges interested in supporting this event, full table sponsorship is $300 and half table sponsorship is $150. Sponsorship of a single lady is $50. All contributors will be named in the evening's program and any monies received in excess of what is required for this event will be placed in a fund for future events benefiting the village's widows.

If your lodge would like to contribute to the evening's success, please send checks made payable to "Enchanted Evening" to co-chairman Bro. Tracy H. Miller, P.M., 2442 Masonic Drive, Sewickley, PA 15143. For more information, contact Bro. Miller at (412) 749-9086 or co-chairman Bro. David P. Rihl at (412) 741-7914.
