Tucker Lodge No. 99 held an Entered Apprentice Degree at the historic William Pitt Tavern on April 7th for Bro. David M. Hersey. The William Pitt Tavern is preserved in Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth, as the birthplace of the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire and example of colonial period lodging. Space is limited but it holds a “never to be forgotten” opportunity for the candidate in a 1770’s Lodge Room which predates the United States.
