This Spring.
Winchester. Va , January 15.?Plans
are being outlined by the officers and
members of Winchester Commandcry
: No. 12. Knights Templar, for the
celebration of the one hundredth
anniversary of its founding, which took
: place in the spring of 1SI3. The celebra?
tion will be one of the most elaborate
affairs of the kind held in the loner
Shenandoah Valley in many years, and
1 it is eipected that largo numbers of
Knights Templar from the various
cities and towns of the Virginia Valley '
and others from contiguous portions
of the Cumberland Valley in West
Virginia. Maryland and Pennsylvania
will gather as the special guests of the
Wim hester organization, whb-h is.
incidentally, one of the wealthiest and ;
most flourishing in the State.
The Winchester Commandcry. now I
known as No. 13. was firs' instituted
by Pennsylvania Knights Templar as
Winchester Orand F.ncampment No. I. j
in ISlt. according to documents and I
metallic inscriptions found in a leaden,
box in the northeast corner of the old
Market House. whi? h was torn down
several years ago to make room for
the present City Hall. The Orand
i Commandery of Virginia was instituted
! in Richmond about ten years later,
i The Winchester Commandery has find
an uninterrupted career of nearly 10?
years, even the troublesome davs of
tho Civil War not interfering with l's
progress. Daniel Walker Thomas, of
Win bester, was the first right eminent
grand commander of Virginia, and now. |
after the lapse of nearly a century.
