Donald Pellington for his long standing dedication to the history of our
Lodge and to Masonry in general. Don has continually collected many
valuable books and documents on many aspects of our Craft. Because of
his relocation to the mid section of our State he has donated all his
collection to our Library making it a premier collection of Masonic
information. In recognition of this we have named our library "The
Donald Pellington Library", in his honor. Below are two photos during
the presentation to Don. Shown from left to right are the Worshipful Master

District of Columbia Grand Masters November Message
This year our District Picnic had the best
weather we have had in some time but our attendance was almost one half
of previous years. It seems many other dates conflicted. We will look forward
to next year for better attendance as many people work very hard in all
the preparation for this event.
