This beautiful commemorative plate was made for Damascus Shrine No. 1 of the White Shrine of Jerusalem of Pennsylvania.  It is dated June 7, 8, 9, 1911 which was probably an annual gathering of their Order.  It was founded by Charles D. Magee, at Chicago, Illinois, in 1894.  The order comprises both men and women, who must be members in good standing of the Order of Eastern Star.   The White Shrine is not recognized, however, as a branch of the Order of the Eastern Star.  This plate was made by the O.P. Co. of Syracuse, New York and is 9 3/4 inches in diameter.
