Manhattan College has set up a Facebook page. To join, go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/manhattan210 and click on the +Invite button. You will be verified and if a member of the York Rite, given access.

The College met on Saturday, October 7, when Stenrick Adams, Deputy Governor, presented the College with a flag and a gavel.

The College approved the setting up of a Committee to design a bespoke tie and bowtie for the College. Since we are a daylight College, it was decided that members would wear a dark suit, and Officers a black jacket and striped pants similar to English daylight Lodges.

A photograph was taken to commemorate the 70% attendance at the October meeting.
