The Masonic Fraternity of Tuckahoe held the 9/11 Memorial Service on September 10th at 1:00pm.  RW Duncan Stalker, District Deputy Grand Master acted as the Master of Ceremony and welcomed all of the visitors.  He recognized RW Kurt Ott, Grand Marshal and RW Jim Sullivan, Grand Lecturer representing the Grand Lodge of the State of New York.  He introduced the Honorable Michael J. Martino, Mayor of Tuckahoe and Police Chief John Costanzo.

The entire Memorial Service was video-taped by Channel 12 News and will appear on the Westchester edition of Channel 12 in an edited format.

The Grand Lodge of the State of New York donated 30,000 United States flags to the communities throughout the State of New York.  RW Jim Sullivan presented the US Flag to the dignitaries from Tuckahoe and to RW Al Frohlich for the schools.  There were 34 attendees who then enjoyed a delicious lunch, desserts and fellowship in the newly furbished lower banquet hall.
