"Walk My State"
Sept 30, 2023 - Oct 9, 2023
Walk My State is a walk across the state of Pennsylvania to raise money for the Masonic Youth Groups, the Masonic Widows Fund, and other charities of Good Samaritan Lodge 336. Brother Matt Rancosky Worshipful Master of Good Samaritan Lodge 336 will be walking 265 miles starting at the Pleasant Valley Masonic Center in Connellsville PA and ending at the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia PA. The journey will take 10 days. Brother Matt will be tracking his progress across the state daily on our Facebook page. Please come and join him for a little bit when he is in your area. This walk is not just about raising money for great charitable causes, but also about meeting other brothers from across the state and maybe even a chance to explain Freemasonry to others.
