New look for the Lodge Room
Calvin Coolidge once said:
“It has not been my fortune to know very much of Freemasonry, but I have had the great fortune to know many Freemasons and have been able in that way, judge the Tree by its Fruit. I know of your high ideals. I have seen that you hold your meetings in the presence of the open Bible, and I know that men who observe that formality have high sentiments of citizenship, of worth, and character. That is the strength of our Commonwealth and our Nation.”
Virtues we live by
We as Masons live by Virtues that we incorporate into our everyday lives. The four Cardinal Virtues which are Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence and Justice and represent the foundation of natural morality. At the end of the day, living by the Cardinal Virtues will bring each of us honor, and a reputation that is untarnished. Alternatively, failing to heed the teachings of these virtues can lead to a life of sadness, one where we are left trying to rebuild that which we once had. For our Lodges, as long as we govern ourselves by using the Cardinal Virtues as a guide, then we will continue to stand the test of time. We will, through our actions, ensure that the detractors of Freemasonry are overshadowed by the truth of Freemasonry. These Four Cardinal Virtues of Freemasonry provide a framework for daily living and serve as a guide for our relationship with God and our fellow man. As new Masons we must begin to develop and strengthen these virtues, which will help us grow and develop into better men. As experienced Masons, we should constantly remind ourselves of these virtues and their importance in our lives.

It’s getting to be that time again. Guys, if you would like to take your better half out for dinner for Valentines Day, join us on February 12th at 5:00 pm.

You don’t have to be a Mason to join us for dinner
If there are 5 Thursdays in a month, the 5th Thursday is set aside for the guys to get together, have dinner and relax and enjoy each others company. Also, every couple of months, we get together and take our better half out for dinner. You don’t have to be a Mason to join us.
