PA Rainbow joined PA DeMolay on their 2013 Inauguration Trip to Washington, DC, on January 21, 2013, to witness the second inauguration of Barack H. Obama as President of the United States. Mrs. Helen Snedden, Supreme Deputy, and Sis. Nikki Schafer, Grand Worthy Advisor. were joined by members and chaperons from Martha Assembly No. 11, Penn Valley Assembly No. 153. and Hope Assembly No. 186.
It was an early bus ride to George Washington National Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia where a picture was taken on the steps of the Memorial. From there groups were off to the Metro and an adventure of a lifetime. Some went to the parade route, others to the Mall for the Inauguration, and still others walked to many historic places including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and other museums.
Thank you to DeMolay for the invitation to join in this wonderful experience and memories for a lifetime.
