During the Lloyd James KOP Summer Camp, several of our KOP members were honored by receiving a few awards. The Truth and Union KOP are a hard working group of young men and mentor. We are very proud of their efforts.

Our 2017 Graduates
Truth and Union members attended the 'It Takes A Village' youth symposium on Saturday April 29, 2017. The event was put on by the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Georgia, and is designed to bring youth and adults together to discuss issues that pertain to the youth. Truth and Union's KOP (Knights of Pythagoras) is a youth group consisting of young men from Dekalb and Gwinnett counties. The lodge is dedicated to helping to mentor young men and help guide them towards a path of success in life.

On April 29, 2017, Truth and Union Lodge #594 participated in the 2017 Walk To End Lupus in Atlanta, Georgia. Truth and Union along with other metro Atlanta area lodges that are apart of The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Georgia,, provide support for the event by donating and giving out water to the walk participants. This is a yearly event and the lodge always has a great time while doing good in the community.
Walk to End Lupus Now ™ events provide all people affected by lupus and their families the opportunity to come together for one unified purpose — to end lupus. Thousands of walkers in nearly 60 cities across the nation walk to raise money for lupus research, increase awareness of lupus, and rally public support for the estimated 1.5 million Americans who suffer from its brutal impact.
Here are more photos from the event.
