The Almas Temple in Washington D.C. is a lovely venue and we made sure to get it tricked out with uplighting and lounge furniture for one of our Mitzvahs.
We wanted to congratulate Dad and Brother Alan L Gordon on his installation as Senior Grand Warden of Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia tonight! Dad Gordon is a Senior DeMolay from Cornerstone Chapter, has served as CFO of Nation's Capital DeMolay, an Honorary Member of the Supreme Council and has been a leader of several masonic groups including Almas Temple of Shriners International. We look forward to Dad Gordon's year of service and leadership!
