Please welcome the speaker at our next meeting

Rick Hendricks

"Freemasonry, Odd Fellows, and Knights of Columbus: Fraternal Organizations in NM"

The August 4, 2018 speaker is New Mexico State Historian, Rick Hendricks, and the title of his presentation is “Freemasonry, Odd Fellows, and Knights of Columbus: Fraternal Organizations in New Mexico.”  The territorial and early statehood periods in New Mexico coincided with the heyday of fraternal organizations.  Most prominent men, whether Catholic, Jew, or Protestant belong to one or more fraternal organizations.  This talk will provide an introduction to the history of three of these organizations that were important in New Mexico, and explore how such organizations allowed their members to integrate into New Mexico society.

See you at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
