Celebrating Our Leader


A Testimonial Celebration Luncheon honoring Most Worshipful Gregory R. Smith Jr., the 59th Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the State of New York, was held on Saturday, April 15th, 2023 from 11:30am to 4pm at the VIP COUNTRY CLUB, 600 Davenport Ave, New Rochelle, NY.

A Great Time Was Had By ALL!

A Special Word of Thanks…

I am humbled and overwhelmed from the love and support from the Brothers, Sisters, Dignitaries, Elected Officials, Family and Friends who supported the testimonial. As I mentioned today, I would not have been in this position without you! Even though this was a testimonial for me, I view it as a testimonial for US. Titles and positions are temporary, how you treat each other is forever.

Also this day would not have been a success without the Testimonial Committee:
RW Gary Davis, Co-Chair
WM Nathaniel Higgins Co-Chair
PGWM Lisa Horton
PM Lisa Gibson
RW Mitch Eleam
RW Rodney Chadwick
PM Mindy Gillis-White
PM Raquiel Shelton
RW Larry Clark
RW Treymaine Bunche
and honorary committee member RW Sandino Sanchez…
the untiring efforts and long hours you put into planning this affair should be recognized and congratulated!

Thank you All for making this day special!

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” -Proverb

Your Brother Always,

MW Gregory Robeson Smith, Jr.
Grand Master
MWPHGL of New York

ONE PHAmily… ONE Jurisdiction!
