Olde Timers’ Night

It’s that time of the year again. The time when we begin to settle down for the summer. We put in a lot of hours planning and preparing for the East Aurora Music Fest, and for our Sessquincenntial Charter Rededication. Now it is time to relax. At Blazing Star Lodge we gather together in an informal site away from the Lodge. We Tyle as usual but there is a relaxed feeling. Not much business is done, we hand out awards and the new officers in their new chairs have their first crack at their lines. We have lots of laughs and always have room for more to share this evening with us. This is when the Fellowship is at it’s best. This year we are having a delicious chicken BBQ with all of the fixins’. We have some random items to raffle off and the Fellowship will be overflowing.

It is our sincere hope that any and all Masons that are able to come out do so and enjoy this evening with us (Directions below). If you need a ride you can always contact us and someone WILL make sure you get there and home safely. The dress code is casual so come as you are, we can handle some last minute arrivals however, if you can let us know you are coming we can properly prepare enough dinner to go around.

150 years of Blazing Star Masonry

2019 marks the 150th year of Blazing Star Lodge #694 Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York’s Masonic Charter granting Masonic work and instruction. Actually, Blazing Star Lodge # 294 F&AM was in East Aurora, NY since 1818. The original Lodge was forced to turn in their Charter in 1927 after the Morgan Affair. Going by the original Charter Blazing Star has been a part of East Aurora, New York for 201 years. After the rechartering the Lodge grew rapidly. Only 37 years after in 1906 the Brothers broke ground on a brand new Masonic Lodge. A few modifications and some modernization this is the same Lodge that stands on Main Street today.

Today we are celebrating the rededication of our second Charter; #694. This is a historic event that is happening in a historic building. The public is welcome to visit us at 7:30 pm this evening, Saturday, June 15, 2019, to witness the ceremony and help us celebrate this achievement. One hundred and fifty years is impressive but we are a strong Lodge and we will see at least another one hundred and fifty years of Masonry in East Aurora, New York.

We are setup and will broadcast Live on Facebook Live and on YouTube. If you are unable to come to the Lodge this is the next best thing.

East Aurora Music Festival Recap

The end of the Masonic year usually means slowing things down, however, not this year for the Brothers of Blazing Star Lodge #694 F&AM in East Aurora, New York. We are ending the year with three exciting events. First was the East Aurora Music Festival. A full day of music, Fellowship, hard work, excitement, and lots of fun. The day was a huge success, we were even able to attract a few potential members, we shall see. Our next event is the Charter rededication ceremony this Saturday at the Lodge. The public is welcome to attend and we are making preparations to broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook Live! Details will follow soon. Following the 150th rededication, we have our final meeting of the year, our Olde Timers’ Night. This is the meeting we honor those who have been with the Fraternity for many years. It is always a good night and lots of good fun.
For those who were wondering about who tipped better at the East Aurora Music Fest, men or women, it was the men by a factor of two! Thank you to everyone who came out and helped us enjoy the day with our community.

Here are a couple video posted to our brand new Blazing Star Lodge 694 YouTube channel.

A few photos taken during the day.
