According to the Masonic Press Agency, last year the Grand Master of Chile received the President at the Annual Communication:
President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet visited the Grand Lodge of Chile. This is the first time in the history of this country when a President makes an official visit and talks in front of the Grand Lodge of Chilean Freemasons. At the time of her entry into the Grand Temple, Bachelet was cheered by over 650 Freemasons and guests present. Bachelet’s father was a Freemason, as was her maternal grandfather.
Chilean Presidency informed that Mrs. President attended the Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Chile to provide to the national Freemasonry a recognition for its contribution to education, freedom, State and public policies.
The Most Worshipful Grand Master of Chile said: “We feel particularly proud because, you, Madam President, you are always considered a person close to our institution.”
