The Spelling of Ac'c'acia

The following is an excerpt from the "Accacia Lodge Centennial Program" written in 1965 by Denny K. Brann, P.M.

"Before we are accused of having no knowledge of the proper spelling of the tree known as the acacia, it is best that a word of explanation be entered. When our Brothers first requested to be Chartered the name of the Lodge read Acacia, but when our Charter was presented it read Accacia. Whether this was a misprint in the Charter, or whether the Brothers requested a last-minute change in the spelling, is not known to us, but in any event as long as our Charter reads Accacia Lodge No. 51, as such we shall be known."
