Manhattan York Rite College No. 210
Following the same demise as the other Colleges due to Covid 19, Manhattan College #210 is finally functional again! Lockdown in NYC was harsher than other places. Nevertheless, we were able to hold our Annual Meeting on May 6, 2021, graced with the presence of V. Em. Dist. David Stoy, Deputy Grand Governor, and Preem. Richard Transue, his travelling companion.
This was followed by a meeting on September 29.
Upcoming meetings will be held in Grand Lodge on Thur October 21 and Mon November 29, with further meetings to be held in January and a conferral of the Order in March.
4 Awards have been given out. Gold Awards were presented to the widow of Bro. Rene van Geuns following his recent demise, and to Bor. Joseph Goldbloom, both for their years of service to Freemasonry and the York Rite. A Gold Award was presented to Rev. & Bro. Doug Oudsley and a Diamond Award to Rev. Adrienne Dannhauser, previous and current Rectors of the Church of the Incarnation, for many years supporting Morton Commandery No. 4 in the conferral of the Order of the Temple in their church. The church presentation made it into the Spring 2021 edition of the York Rite Crusader.
