Latest Blazing Star Updates

With the Holiday season approaching we are reminded of family and friends and look forward to gathering for delicious food, maybe a warm fire, and exchanging gifts. As Masons, we are also reminded that there are too many who do not have any of these amazing gifts we often take for granted. Starting this year, by the order of the Worshipful Master, Blazing Star Masons will be “required” to bring a nonperishable food donation to each meeting. We will then donate these items to the local food banks (FISH of EA & Rural Outreach Center). In just one meeting we can literally supply enough food for multiple families to have a few good meals. We anticipate this will become a tradition for many years to come.

If you are interested in Freemasonry in East Aurora, NY, and want to help our charitable works, please feel free to contact us for a meeting to learn more.

Our last communication on October 27, 2020, was very informative. Even without an actual program, the Brothers pulled together for some good Masonic teachings.

Our next meeting is the DDGM Official visit. While Stressful it is also rewarding. The Masonic Minute will be the story of the Red Marble and how it relates to Freemasonry.

Blazing Star Lodge – East Aurora, NY

Proud yet unassuming and slightly hidden behind some old-growth trees, the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge stands as a permanent fixture in East Aurora, New York.  It overlooks the town with a protective eye ensuring all who pass are good and upright citizens.  We like to think that the presence of the Lodge in our town sets a stage of history, pride, and Brotherly love among the members of the Lodge and the citizens of the town.

As part of the East Aurora, New York community since 1869 (Current Charter – Blazing Star began as #294 in 1818 but the Morgan Affair forced it to close, more on that another time.), the Blazing Star Masonic Lodge actively seeks ways to contribute to the success of our neighbors.  We do this by supporting little league baseball, FISH of East Aurora, The Rural Outreach Center, and Scholarships to graduating seniors at Iroquois High School and East Aurora High School.  Most recently the formation of Brother Of The Bread lead by Brother Andrew Egressy.  We are interested in our community and the people who call East Aurora, New York home.  

Our members meet in the Lodge every second and fourth Tuesday of each month September through June.  Dinners begin at 6:30 pm with communications starting promptly at 7:30 pm.  If you are interested please do not hesitate to knock on our door, virtually or literally, before 7:30 pm, and join us for dinner.  We encourage social discussions before and after official communications are complete.

Since 1906 our Lodge stands as a building of humble men striving to better themselves and in-turn make the world a better place.  This is what we do.  We would love to talk to you more about Freemasonry please contact us anytime.


We are not affiliated with Whence Came You Podcast but it is so informative we wanted to provide a way for our visitors to learn from its content.

This week, I read a letter from my own Area Deputy Grandmaster on the Humanity of Being Brothers. What did we do is kids that we don't do today? Then we'll take a look at a bizarre experiment done at Stanford University– The prison experiment. We explore the roles of Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice have in such an experiment and what Masonry can teach us about behaviors. Then we'll wrap it all up with a piece from Darren Lahners on creating the ideal Lodge experience. If pizza is available, why do you keep eating ketchup on a saltine? All this and more. Stay tuned!
