Charities Supported

Where do we start with this? There are many charities that deserve the support of the members, from the minor lodges, to PGL's, Knights Chapters, ROH assemblies and the national appeal under the Grand Primo.

Since the order began, they have given to charity in a big way, from the 1 or 2 pennies is years gone by the many tens of thousands we now see as the norm, the number of appeals that go on during each and every year is far too many to list here, but we will list the recent appeals supported, starting with the Grand Primo's
