Sacramento Masonic Temple
The Masonic Temple Association of Sacramento has planned a gala celebration on September 15th of the 100th year of the laying of the cornerstone at 12th and J Streets. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the contents of the two time capsules in that cornerstone, and participate in a Cornerstone Rededication Ceremony.
After a talk about the early history of Freemasonry in Sacramento, particularly regarding the Lodges at the Temple, group photos will be arranged, and a gala banquet enjoyed, with entertainment during dinner and dancing afterward.
