Pennsylvania May Warrant its First Spanish-Speaking Lodge

R.W. Grand Master Jay W. Smith has authorized the potential warranting of the first Spanish-speaking lodge in the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, to be named Alto Meridiano Lodge. District Deputy Grand Master G. Kent Hackney has been working with potential charter members to make it a reality, as the lodge would be assigned to Masonic District B. The group needs 50 members to apply for the lodge's warrant.

If you are interested in being a charter member of this future lodge, contact Basil Veiga, P.M., via email.
