This is the program from the “34th Annual Dinner Dance Sea & Field Lodge Number 2-983 F. & A.M.” My grandfather was not a member of this lodge, so he must have attended as a guest. Based on some of the other mason keepsakes, it looks like he was invited to events help by other lodges.
My Grandfather (Frank Wilkinson) was a mason in the (49 UNICAS Lodge in Syracuse, NY. Here in an invitation from another lodge to their annual dinner.
This is the program for the 1955 Annual Dinner Party for Uncas Lodge No. 949. This was one of the years that he was the Master of this lodge. He is only 47 in this picture…everyone looked older in the 1950s.
