Please click on  [ read more ] ,below, to view the thank you letter the brothers of St. John’s Lodge [and those from participating lodges] received from Kathleen Churchill, the Special Events Designer for the Strawbery Banke Museum, regarding our William Pitt Tavern Haunted House.   For those who participated in the “haunting” and can not understand how we could have possibly gone through all the candy we had – read the section on the number of visitors Cathleen quotes in her letter.


Hi Rod,


I just wanted to thank you so much for the absolutely fabulous job the Masons did at Ghosts on the Banke – your haunting of Pitt tavern was a HUGE hit!  We certainly hope that you will be willing to participate next year.  I was so pleased that you were able to “haunt” without being too scary, just perfectly spooky.  This event had almost 4,000 visitors this year – more than we have ever had (so, it was not surprising that we ran out of candy in several locations)!


Again, thank you so much for your participation, the Masons really added a lot to the event!


I look forward to hearing from you and working with you again!


Kindest Regards,
