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 for 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 after official communications are complete.
It is my sad duty to report that Past Master Stanley Zaretski put down the working tools of life. He passed away on Friday, 7/18/2014. Brother Stan has been in failing health the last few years. He was Past Master of Blazing Star in 1982. He was very good with ritual work and was very active in the lodge until he suffered a stroke about 12 years ago.
Brother Stan will be buried in Peckford, PA on Wednesday in the town he was born. The family may have a memorial service in about two weeks in East Aurora. If they do have the service, a Masonic Service will be scheduled. I will let you know more
details as they become available.
