K.O.T.M. Tents

From Kook Science

Kennedy Tent, No. 904 (c. 1899)

Tents of the Knights of the Maccabees were the local chapters of the order, equivalent to Masonic Lodges, operating under the jurisdiction of Great Camps (which, in turn, operated under the Supreme Tent). An individual Tent would conduct the ritual work of initiation through three formal degrees, as well as planning for social events, parades, and other schemes for fraternal and public benefit.
