Cleopatra's Needle Program
Frank P. Moncure Lodge No. 279 - Stafford, VA
Please join us for lunch and a Masonic Education program presented by Springfield Masonic Lodge No. 217 using a 1/15 scale Model of an ancient Egyptian Obelisk. The base of the Obelisk contains what is considered to be masonic symbols. The symbols include a perfect white cube, a master's mark, square, etc.
The obelisk was made over 4,000 years ago and was transported to the United States in the 1870's. When being dismantled, the stones representing masonic symbols were discovered. The program asks the question, "When did FreeMasonry begin?"
The model is dismantled and the symbols shown and described. The program also describes the voyage of the obelisk and it's erection in Central Park, New York City.
Masonry is considered an ancient fraternity. How ancient is it? Our program attempts to answer that question.
