An able administrator and a contributor to radio and TV, she has also lectured publicly on Freemasonry. Jeanne is also one of the Founder Members of The Grand Conclave of the 33rd degree. We owe a debt of gratitude to Jeanne whose unstinting and continued efforts have helped make a strong foundation for our new Grand Lodge
Congratulations and goodwill wishes for the future were received from Masonic obedience's around the world. This very happy and auspicious occasion was also attended by many distinguished guests from other Masonic obedience's who came to see history in the making and to help celebrate this landmark event and included below among others,.
