MOUNT VERNON — Local Masonic bodies held their Sixth Annual Valentine’s Dance at the Amvets Memorial Post 95 in Mount Vernon, Friday night.

According to Worshipful Master of the Mount Zion Lodge 9, Bill McCrory, the night was open to all local Masonic groups and their families including the Order of the Eastern Star Knox Chapter 236, as well as nearby lodges in Bladensburg and Fredericktown, the Shrine, the York and Scottish Writes and the Grotto.

“It’s just a chance for us to socialize and get to know each other as we’re supposed to do…” McCrory said, “to spread brotherhood and sisterhood and see how we can help each other.”
