Celebrating the 300th Anniversary
of the Grand Lodge of England!
 
In 2017, New Jersey Freemasonry will be celebrating the 300th Anniversary of the Grand Lodge of England. To help commemorate this event, the Grand Lodge of New Jersey has contracted with PCI to publish a high end “Yearbook” to be sold/distributed late in the 2017/2018 Masonic year.

All New Jersey Freemasons will be contacted directly by PCI via the mail for information that each Mason may wish to submit as part of that yearbook. Each of you will be able to provide up to 300 words for individual biographies and there is an opportunity for you to provide a personal picture.
