Ohio - Pennsylvania Unity Night


I have not done a very good job of promoting the Ohio - Pennsylvania unity night that has been going on since 2010.  It is indeed going to be held again this year.
The event is September 15, 2015 at the Youngstown Masonic Temple, 223 Wick Avenue, Youngstown, Ohio 45501.  The meeting will begin at 7:00pm with a light meal to follow  I am sure that the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania will have a great turnout and we should do the same, as the host Grand Lodge.
All Master Masons are welcome.  I encourage each of the District Deputies to notify their lodges and the DEOs in the District to get the word out to all.  I ask that you send to all of your Masonic mailing lists so that as many who can sees it.
I apologize for not getting this out before the Lodges went dark, but please do the best you can.
