Joint GL Meeting and Cornerstone Ceremony in North Carolina
On April 24th, 2009, the Grand Lodge of North Carolina A.F. & A.M. and the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of North Carolina F&AM were convened in a joint session by Most Worshipful Milton F. Fitch, Jr. and Most Worshipful Dan C. Rice in the Temple of Rockingham Lodge No. 495 A.F. & A.M., in Rockingham, North Carolina
According to a message by Brother William Mills of the GLofNC, "the purpose of the meeting was to lay a cornerstone for the new Richmond County Courthouse in Rockingham. For purposes of conducting the ceremony the Grand Masters appointed the officers of of Day Spring Lodge #44 F & AM and Rockingham Lodge to serve as pro tempore as Grand Lodge officers. The Masters of both lodges were appointed pro tempore Grand Master and the other officers were appointed on an alternating basis from the two local lodges."
Not just a cornerstone. A new milestone.
