A Toast to Our Brethren! Thank you to all those who contributed to our spring campaign. The House of the Temple received this ca. 1790–1810 punchbowl from the estate of Ill. Claude H. Harris, 33°, in 2016. Our spring membership gift, The Freemasons’ Punchbowl, highlighted ceramics like this, as well as earthenware and glassware from the Temple’s collection.
