Samoor Grotto was granted their Charter on December 2, 1952 with a headquarters city of Sarasota. Legendary local Masons were the first principal officers: Maloy Turbeville, C. Allen Pattison and George Boston. Samoor has operated continuously since that founding while adapting to changing times in that there have been more or less members, we have owned buildings or rented space and had various units but we have never stopped our core mission, that is, to welcome Masons from all lodges, to have fun with Masons and their families and to do good work for the community.
The camper’s unit is a mixed unit that includes Grotto members, their families, friends, and any invited guest. Our meetings are the last Friday of the month where we enjoy a potluck dinner and good fellowship.
