Freemasonry is the oldest fraternal organization in the world.   It is dedicated to promoting improvement in the character of its members.  A Mason is taught to be a good citizen, to be of good character, & to care for those less fortunate.   

Freemasonry traces its roots to the Middle Ages. It is from associations of stone masons, who built the magnificent cathedrals, castles, and monasteries of Europe that the fraternity started. These groups, eventually, began to accept members who were not actual working masons. 

They adopted the term "Accepted" Masons, and Freemasonry was born.

George Washington stands before you in a full-length portrait by Gilbert Stuart. The painting, done in 1796, is known as the Lansdowne portrait because it was a gift to the Marquis of Lansdowne, an English supporter of American independence, from Senator and Mrs. William Bingham of Pennsylvania.

One of the originals is still hanging in the White House today as it was saved by First Lady Dolley Madison during the burning of the White House by the British during the War of 1812

For a donation of $150, a large framed portrait of this painting will be presented to a local South Carolina school.

This is a fundraiser to support  Juvenile Diabetes Research.
