Los Alamos Masonic Cornerstone Laying Sunday


The community of Los Alamos is invited to witness a Masonic Cornerstone Laying for the new Unitarian Universalist Church Building at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21. The Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons, Dennis Anderson, will preside at the ceremony. It is with pleasure that the local Los Alamos Masonic Lodge will join our Grand Master while he performs this ceremony.

Many cornerstones in public buildings across the U.S. and the world have been laid by Freemasons. The cornerstone at the base of the United States Capitol was laid in 1793 by President George Washington, Acting Grand Master of Masons. Many Masons will recognize the “Lost Symbol” in Dan Brown’s book, as being the Bible placed inside the cornerstone laid by Masons at the foot of the Washington Monument.

Again, we invite the people of Los Alamos to attend and enjoy the ceremony. The Unitarian Church is at 1738 N. Sage.
