Now that the summer is officially over, September is the official start of the Masonic year as well as the cool weather. The Aleppo Units were extremely busy with Tour of Duty Parades in the month of September. Starting with Labor Day, we had a successful rainy parade in Marlborough, followed by the Northeast Shrine Association Parade on Saturday, September 17th in Bangor, Maine. We came back home to Massachusetts to have a Double Header the following weekend. On Saturday, September 24th we were in the Chester, NH 300th Anniversary Parade and the next day, Sunday, September 25th we joined with the 8th District Grand Lodge of Massachusetts Masons in Weymouth for the Irish Heritage Parade. Finally, on Sunday October 2nd we were at the Annual Roslindale (Boston) Parade. In Roslindale, It was really great to see Noble Michael Segal on the sidelines.
Chief of Staff, Ernie Pearlstein has set up two Parades for the month of December. On Sunday, December 4th we are returning to the Merrimac, MA Santa Parade, and the following week, Sunday, December 11th we’ll be at the Boston North End Christmas Parade.
