Dear managers of the Masonry Website,

I send you the program of an Unveiling Ceremony on Saturday 16 in Florida, Mt. Dora.

A State Historic Heritage Marker will be fixed on the building of the Witherspoon Lodge No. 111 (PHA) on 1420 Clayton Street. The building dates from 1903. It is the second building in Mt. Dora to receive a State Marker, the other being the Masonic Lodge on Donnelly Street (1915).

I hope you will find place to mention this exciting event in your web columns. If you would know more about the identitiy of Mr. Witherspoon, we would be glad to get your information.

Thank you very much, with kindest regards,

Pim Ligtvoet
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
