55th District

For the fourth consecutive year, the 55th Masonic District Race Team participated in the Western Pennsylvania Arthritis Mini-Grand Prix and again came away with honors. Most exemplary, the team won the "Highest Contribution" plaque. The sleek mini-racer, with "55" and the square and compasses on its hood, had "55th Masonic District" and "Masonic Charities" emblazoned on its sides. The racing team, all dressed in two-tone purple outfits and caps, captured a second place award for their striking uniforms. More than $13,000 has been contributed for arthritis research through the support of nine of the lodges of the District and the Matching Charity Grants Program. All of the lodges meet in the Greater Pittsburgh Masonic Center.
