GALA DAY AWARDS - Jacksonville, FL


Masud Temple No. 69 set to host 


Masud Temple No.69 will host Gala Day 2014 in beautiful West Palm Beach, FL., and the most populous city in Palm Beach County, Florida. The city is also the oldest incorporated municipality in South Florida. According to the US Census Bureau, in 2010 the city had an estimated population of 99,919.

The beginning of the historic period in south Florida is marked by Juan Ponce de León’s first contact with native people in 1513. The first white settlers in Palm Beach County lived around Lake Worth, then an enclosed freshwater lake, named for Colonel William Jenkins Worth, who had fought in the Second Seminole War in Florida in 1842.

Blacks relocated from the STYX (Palm Beach) for the most part about 1906 to the all-black Northwest neighborhood of West Palm Beach, which had been established since 1894. Since then, Blacks have made the most of their establishment in West Palm Beach. 

Masud Temple No. 69 was formed in the fall of 1949 by Nobles with Shrine degrees living in the West Palm Beach; but who had been a shrine club affiliated with Kazah Temple No. 149 in Miami, Florida. By September of 1959, Kazah assisted in creating a total of 38 Masud Nobles when the first Temple was officially established in West Palm Beach. Noble Sam Brady was appointed the First Potentate of Masud Temple No. 69 under dispensation by Imperial Potentate Booker T. Alexander. On September 18, 1960 Imperial Potentate Alexander granted a charter to the Temple and the First election was held. The following Nobles were the First to be elected into office by the Masud Nobility: Eugene A. Stevens, Illustrious Potentate, J. C. Arnold, Chief Rabban, William Mercer, Assistant Rabban, W. B. Watson, Treasurer, and John W. Stevens, Recorder. We are proud of our history! Masud looks forward to hosting YOU in west Palm Beach, FL in 2014. We have much to share in Masud fashion with an extraordinary flair!
