September 17, 1932, a special communication of Barristers’ Lodge was held for the purpose of participating in a reenactment ceremony of the laying of the cornerstone of the US Capitol. The year 1932 marked the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s Birth, and a year-long celebration was held in his honor. Bro. Rep. Sol Bloom of Pacific Lodge No. 233 of New York, associate director of the Washington Bicentennial Commission, was the principal speaker at this event, and MWB Reuben A. Bogley, Grand Master of Masons of DC, presided over the ceremony. Among many other Brethren who participated, WM Aubrey Marrs, of Barristers’ Lodge No. 48, was part of the Grand Lodge Bicentennial Committee. Over 10,000 people participated in the ceremony, and our minutes say “It was undoubtedly the greatest showing ever made by the Blue Lodges of this jurisdiction”.
