Dr. Daverio Orfano of Pietro Micca Lodge #876 in Torino, Italy and Dr. Francesco Vitale from Santini Lodge #22, Prague, Czech Republic were attending a medical conference in New York. During the conference they heard about the Hospitals and arranged to receive a special tour through the Masonic Relations Committee.
During their two day visit they also attended Oriental Lodge #33 in Chicago. They were amazed at what has been developed through Illinois Masonry and the Masonic Assistance Program. They were also quite impressed with the opportunity to visit one of our Lodges and the Valley of Chicago.
