The Searchers Club
Presents a Very Special Evening…
“The Masonic Legacy of Bro. Joseph Diele:
An Examination of a Life in the Quarries.”
Brethren of all Ranks, Stations, and Places are cordially invited to attend!
Brother Joe A. Diele lay down his working tools of life about five (5) years ago, leaving behind a small treasure trove of items that Masons tend to collect in the journey to their final quarry. Not knowing what to do with it, his daughter turned it over for disposal to the Searchers Club- to examine and investigate these items and glean what we can from the Masonic work of a Brother. Everything is collected within two (2) boxes except one Certificate of his Conferral to the Exalted 33rd Degree. Bro. Diele was a Deputy in Japan and Korea; appointed 9-1-76.
· *Grand Lodge: District Deputy Grand Master, China District Grand Lodge of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts- 1980, 2000
· *Master- Sinim Lodge , Japan, under the Grand Lodge of MA -1986
As he was active in the Japan and China Grand Lodges, we have invited, Ret Army Col. Brother John Chang to participate and share any knowledge he may have about the Lodges and the artifacts. Additionally, DDGM William H. Sohni- Seventh Manhattan, RW Ron Steiner-Grand Lodge Public Relations, and RW Tom Savini- Director of New York's Livingston Library, will also be on hand to lend their Masonic expertise and experience.
We expect the evening to be by turns somber, interesting, engaging, and informative.
