On March 19, 1896 the Masonic Temple on Dorrance Street was completely destroyed by fire. The various bodies of Freemasonry in Providence with the exception of Adelphoi were without a home and Brother Henry A. Kirby as Master of Adelphoi extended the hospitality of Adelphoi Lodge rooms to all homeless Masonic bodies until such time as temporary quarters could be made available elsewhere.
During last months meeting we had voted on, and passed, a Penny Drive to help support the relief of the brothers of the Prince Hall Lodge. If any brother wants to make a donation to help that would be much appreciated. We are looking for any donation of loose change, or if you would like to write a check. Please make any checks out to Adelphoi lodge, we will compile funds and write a check to Prince Hall lodge.If you have a pile of loose change, contact me by text or email and I’ll make arrangements to have it picked up and added to the total.
We had also discussed procuring more masks and bibs so there will be an ample amount for all the brothers. These will be passed out once we return to lodge.With the latest announcement from the Grand Master, it looks like we will be able to meet I person again starting in March, However Adelphoi will wait until it’s April Communication to once again meet upon the level.
