Yasha was the speaker at the Masonic Society's first annual dinner in Alexandria in 2009, He is incredibly knowledgeable, very entertaining, and it is well worth making the trip to spend the evening with him.


  1. Ironic, isn't it, that if it was a tiled meeting, a tie wouldn't be required.

  2. Now Paul, I'm guessing Shiloh still requires a tie. The new rule says the lodge decides that, instead of Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania demanding it. So what's so wrong with devolving power into the hands of the local lodge?

  3. Bro. Chris, I hate to correct a "Dummy" but, the power actually lies with the DDGM as far as further lessening, but the no-tie rule is the law. Thankfully our DDGM is stopping at the tie.
