On the 5th of July 2019 the Worshipful Master and Brethren of Regeneración Lodge No.132 hosted a very special visit from the Assistant Grand Master of France T.R.F. Jacques Cambon, the Grand Master of the Province of Occitanie, T.R.F. Pierre Hournarette, his Deputy PGM and Assistant PGM and a number of French Brethren. To mark this auspicious occasion, the Provincial Grand Master of Valencia, R.W.Bro. Michael A. Shilan was present with his Official Escort to warmly welcome them.
The Worshipful Master of Regeneración Lodge No.132, V.H. Andres Rascal, his Officers and Brethren were also honored to welcome the Worshipful Masters of two French Lodges who were also in attendance.
It was described by those present as a very emotional evening wich further enforced and celebrated the fraternal ties between Regeneración Lodge No.132 and Saint Jean de Tiberiade Lodge No.1631. The Worshipful Masters of both Lodges expressed their strong desire to continue working on a twinning project. All of this was further enforced by a strong delegation of the Grand Lodge of France and the Province of Occitanie as well as our own Provincial Grand Master and many Brethren of GLPV. It also further enforced the strong and historic relationship that has long esisted between our two great Grand Lodges.
Due to the large number of attendees the Lodge had to change location for this special meeting and used the hotel SH Valencia Palace, the same location that was used for the last Grand Lodge Assembly.
