Blazing Star Lodge #694 F&AM

Blazing Star Lodge
Blazing Star Lodge – East Aurora, NY.

2019 marks our 150 year anniversary! Stay connected with Blazing Star Lodge for updates on our celebration coming Summer 2019!

Standing proud yet unassuming and slightly hidden behind some old growth trees, the East Aurora 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), 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 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 home.  Since the 1800’s our Lodge stood 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.

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.  We encourage social discussions before and after official communications are complete.

Lodge Night – January 22, 2019

Stated Communication
.: By-Law Changes / Masonic Education :.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

Brothers,

Our last communication was the memorial service for our departed brothers. We paid respect and honored those who have paved the way but are no longer among us. We also read a few Grand Lodge notices and upcoming training notices. I hope our newer Brothers, even our long term Brothers can attend all or part as it is a good learning opportunity for everyone.

The Grand Lecturers convention is coming up. They are going to demonstrate and explain the updated Hiramic legend of Grand Master Hiram Abiff. It should be very interesting.

We also had the 3rd-degree history lesson. Brother Barber always does a superb job with this and again he did not disappoint.

We received reports from our committees and all were very favorable. The 150th celebration this June is going to be a good one, but it will take the support of all the Brothers to make it successful.

Our next communication will be held on January 22, 2019. Dinner is at 6:30 pm with culinary delights being provided by our Jr. Warden. We open at 7:30 as usual. It is our time to vote on by-law changes. I have not been made aware of any, but this will be the time to bring them up for discussion and voting.

Bro. Paterek has been putting together a few Masonic lessons and if he is ready the first one will be presented. I am looking forward to it.

Hope to see everyone there, Please do your best to come out and support your Lodge and Brothers.

Fraternally,

W:. Glenn

Lodge Night – January 8, 2019

Stated Communication
.: Memorial Night :.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

 

Happy New Years Brothers,

I hope this finds you all well and rested from this holiday season. Our last communication saw the Raising of two new Master Masons. Thanks to all who were there and lent a hand.  We had two traveling Brothers visit whom we hope to see again.  Special thanks go to our Brothers of Mt. Vernon Lodge #263 F&AM in Java, New York.  We always welcome and appreciate their contributions to the evening’s festivities.

Our next communication on January 8, 2019, should be a good one. We are having our memorial night to pay respects to our Brothers that have gone before us. We also will have the Master Mason historical lecture to complete the ceremonies for our newest Brothers. And we also have a 150th committee that is underway with the planning of the Lodge re-dedication this June.

 

Dinner is served at 6:30 pm.
Lodge opens promptly at 7:30 pm.
Fellowship and refreshments for those staying after Lodge.

This year looks to be busier than any I have seen since becoming a Master Mason. As we approach our 150th anniversary, as a Lodge, we should all be proud that it has maintained and will continue into the future advancing Masonry as we go, but also we need you, my Brothers, to help out. It is going to be a big undertaking which will require many man-hours. Many hands make light work.

Hope to see everyone this Tuesday, come on out and make new friends and reconnect with your Brothers and Lodge.

Fraternally,
W:. Capron
