Back To Back Degrees!

Brethren! The next few weeks will be busy for our Lodge. On April 26, at an emergent communication, we will be conferring the Fellowcraft Degree at Host Lodge. The following week, on May 3, we will be initiating two candidates at our annual visit to the Old Trenton Masonic Temple. Please come out and support your officers, and welcome our newly initiated and Passed brothers.

It’s Official Visit Season!

Every year, the Right Worshipful District Deputy Grand Master makes his rounds to each lodge in this, the 14th Masonic District. Host and Darcy have already received the DDGM, and three remain. These are:

  • Tuesday, March 7: Phillipsburg Lodge
  • Friday, March 10: Warren Lodge, at their home in Belvedere
  • Monday, March 13: Orpheus Lodge in Stockton

If within the length of your Cable Tow, come on out and support your District 14 Lodges and Brethren.
