On Friday, October 7th, 2011, Federal Lodge No.1 and the George Washington Masonic Memorial will be hosting a tribute concert in the Memorial’s amphitheatre to raise badly needed funds for ongoing construction of the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. All proceeds from the tribute concert will go to the National Parks Foundation in support of the construction.
It is wholly appropriate to honor and memorialize these Americans, the passengers of Flight 93, who were the first to fight back against the September 11th terrorists and because these heroes likely prevented a second destructive attack on a national landmark in our nation’s capital.
Please bring this outstanding opportunity to the attention of your lodge and its next communication. I look forward to seeing many of you there on October 7th.
