The following is from his Godson, Brother Richard (Richy) Horning of Escalon Lodge 591-
Brother Chituras was Raised a Master in on September 22nd, 1954 and was been a Mason in good standing for 59 years with Golden Gate Speranza Lodge 40 in San Francisco. Brother Chituras continued in his Mason education through the Scottish Rite and obtained his 32 degree. He also joined the Shriners.
I am happy to say that Raymond Dunne has been select for Mason of The Year from Escalon #591. If a Mason is partially judged by how much he helps his brothers, Mr. Dunne is NOT lacking. Always willing to help out the lodge and step up as an officer. He is a great example of what we like to see from all of our newer brothers. Great job Ray!!!

From the Henry Wilson Coil Library & Museum of Freemasonry: The gorgeous Masonic temple at 25 Van Ness once housed 11 SF lodges. The building was designed by Bliss and Faville from 1911-1913 during the reconstruction following the great fire and earthquake of 1906. Sadly, it is no longer in Masonic use today.
This was taken from the FaceBook page for the Masons of California. When you look at something like this it really helps you realize how huge this fraternity has been and in many ways still is. Truly amazing!
Please remember that tomorrow night we will be going up to visit our brothers at Oak Summit 112. If you need a ride, some of us will be meeting to car pool between 5:45 & 6PM. See you then! Questions? Contact us at email@example.com

This Comes from the Masons of California
“This week in 1933, construction began on the Golden Gate Bridge. Past Grand Master of Masons in California, William P. Filmer, was the President of the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District that organized the building of one of California’s most beloved iconic landmarks.” (Thank you to the Masons of California).
