Earlier this year, our obedience used masonic channels (Grand Lodge of Ukraine and The Grand Orient of Poland) to quickly send funds directly to the people of Ukraine.
But for the first time, on July 19th 2022, three Masonic jurisdictions came together to present a gift to the international committee of the Red Cross in support of the Ukrainian humanitarian disaster. Grand Master Jeffrey M. Wilkins of the Grand Lodge of California, Jean-Claude Zambelli, the sovereign grand commander of the George Washington Union Supreme Council, and Grand Master David San Juan of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Masons of California, Inc., were in attendance.

Bastille's Day Festival in San Francisco
Because we are still new at putting ourselves out there, we forgot to take pictures! But take our word for it. Members of our San Francisco Lodge (Golden Journey) and our Half Moon Bay Lodge (The Humanist) were there, between the GODF Pacifica Lodge and the beer stand. This turned out to be the best spot in the house! We met and talked with a lot of people who were interested in our diversity...and maybe a little beer too! We were happy to share with everyone and enjoy the cold beer. Believe it or not, it was hot in San Francisco that day.
Ok, we lied. We do have a picture of our mascot of the day. Meet Mymoona, Brother Valdeir's puppy.
