About the Ellen Spencer Mussey Tent #1

Our Tent meets on a quarterly basis. 
Our annual Convention is normally held in June. The National organization granted Department status to the Ellen Spencer Mussey Tent in 1977, and in 1978 permitted it to become an independent Department: The Department of the District of Columbia. The group operates under Department rules and has complete representation in the National Body.
Information about our National organization can be found at their website
