Pennsylvania & Ohio Unity Night in New Castle, PA 9/14
Pennsylvania brethren of Mahoning New Castle Lodge No. 243, which meets at the beautiful New Castle Scottish Rite Cathedral, have invited Masons from Ohio and Pennsylvania to join them on Tuesday September 14, 2010 to celebrate Pennsylvania and Ohio Masonic unity.
Right Worshipful Grand Master Thomas K. Sturgeon and Officers of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania will in attendance, as will Most Worshipful Grand Master Terry Posey and officers from Ohio.
Photographs will begin at 7:00 P.M., the meeting will begin at 7:30 PM, and a light meal will follow the meeting.
Ohio Masons are asked to notify their Grand Secretary’s Office as soon as possible by telephone 1-800-292-6092, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
The New Castle Scottish Rite Cathedral is located at 110 East Lincoln Avenue, New Castle, Pennsylvania. It is a magnificent facility, and has one of the largest auditoriums in western Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra frequently travels there for concerts. The brethren have maintained it beautifully and responsibly, and they have much to be proud of. And I covet their new air conditioning.
The city of New Castle itself is a great example of historic preservation on a grand scale. The downtown area shows the proud and loving care of a community that has adapted well from its manufacturing origins. Every corner brings a new surprise, and it is well worth a visit. And the best part of all is that New Castle is home to, not one, but two of the premiere fireworks companies in the world: Zambelli Internationale and S.Vitale Pyrotechnic Industries, Inc. (Pyrotecnico). Boom, baby!
