Development of the movement
The Movement began in Guatemala in 1934 and the Association was officially formed in the following year. The Association received a plot of land following its service to the country during the revolution in 1944, and, due to the fundraising efforts of Movement members, a meeting house and swimming pool were constructed. In 1984, when the Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary, special efforts were made to increase membership. The government gave the Association the highest award in recognition of 50 years of service to the community, and the capital city honoured the Association with a gold medal diploma and ribbon.
