For the fourth year in a row, Ubar Grotto participated in the annual Autumn Day festival held at the Masonic Village in Elizabethtown on Saturday, September 20, 2014. This year’s event was bigger than ever, thanks to the dedication of the Eternal Flame monument in honor of veterans. Ubar Grotto purchased a paving stone to assist with the construction and we are always proud to support our veterans, especially those that enjoy sympathy and good fellowship with us today.
Well over a dozen Prophets spent some time at the Grotto booth throughout the event, with the beautiful weather helping to draw a record breaking crowd. If you had passed by the booth, you’d have noticed at least four Prophets who were there most of the day – Pro. Russ Kratzer, Fraternal Relations Coordinator; Pro. Jay Laser, Kazoo Instructor Extraordinaire; Pro. Chris Young, Chief Cowbell Ringer; and Pro. Tim “The Tyrant” Settlemyer, everyone’s most hated Monarch.
The Ubar stand was especially popular with kids (and kids at heart) as the Grotto distributed kazoos, noise makers, whistles, and more. These were used by the Prophets to conduct impromptu concerts for passers by, to the entertainment of most (but not all!)
If you missed out on Autumn Day, we send our condolences, as this event was one that the Freemasons of Pennsylvania will look back on with pride for years to come!
