Penn Hills Caravan 20 was chartered by Illustrious Sir Willard C. Cutlers, Potentate of Syria Shrine in 1956. After Caravans were approved for Allegheny County, we became the second such group.

The Caravan covers the communities of Penn Hills Township, Wilkinsburg, Wilkins Borough, Church Hill Borough, Forest Hills, Plum, Turtle Creek, Monroeville, Verona, East Pittsburgh, Braddock-North Braddock Swissvale Trafford, and Edgewood.

Our Caravan endorses and continues to be guided by the purposes set forth in our charter which is described as : A voluntary unincorporated association formed for the social purpose, the promotion of good fellowship among the members, and for the furthering of the interest of our fraternity in the area served.

Monthly meetings will continue to be the third Wednesday of each month starting on January 19 at Osteria Pasqualino Restaurant in Murrysville on Route 22.
