On June 24th, 1717, in London, England, four Lodges came together to form the Grand Lodge of England, the first Grand Lodge to be created, bringing together Masons under one unified body. To celebrate the 300th Anniversary of this moment, A Master Mason Degree was held on June 24th, 2017 at the Spartanburg Masonic Temple. Brethren from the 19th, 20th & 21st Districts, participated in raising Brother Michael Johnson, of Inman #201, to the Sublime Degree. After a meal served by the AFM Club Five & Under Team, the Temple was filled to capacity to attend the Degree. The ambiance of the candlelight and music during the conferral of the Degree was a perfect reminder of the past three centuries of tradition and ritual we celebrate this St. John the Baptist’s Day. Congratulations on a wonderful job by the Degree Team, and congratulations to the candidate on receiving his Master Mason Degree.
