Jay Nuss Realty Group, LLC, (http://jaynussrealtygroup.com), a multi-service commercial real estate brokerage-consulting firm based in Braintree, recently donated 400 masks to the Prince Hall Grand Lodge in Dorchester.
The donation was arranged through the Urban Division team of Karen Bunch and Darryl Elow of Jay Nuss Realty Group, LLC. The Lodge is named after Boston’s most prominent citizen during the Revolutionary War period and founder of the African Lodge of the Honorable Society of Free and Accepted Masons of Boston, the world’s first lodge of Black Freemasonry devoted to social, political and economic improvement.
The lodge’s legacy dates back to March 6, 1775 when Prince Hall and 14 men of color were made masons in Lodge No. 441 of the Irish Registry attached to the 38th British Foot Infantry at Castle William Island in Boston Harbor. It marked the first time that men of color were made Masons in America.
