The year 2016 marks the 200th anniversary of Bro. James Buchanan, former President of the United States, joining Lodge No. 43 in Lancaster. Bro. Buchanan also served as the first District Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. In commemoration of this event, the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43 has received permission to wear a white bow tie during the year, as Brother Buchanan was known to have always worn a white tie.
