Blazing Star Lodge

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.

Scholarship Essay Reading

Each year we invite the senior class students of Iroquois and East Aurora High Schools to write an essay describing their activities both as a student at their school and their involvement in the community in which they live.  Activities such as; Scouting, Key Club, Church activities, Boys and Girls Club, community sports programs and most importantly those things which involved family activities and responsibilities.  Through the year we hold fundraisers to raise enough money to supply each winner of the scholarship $500 toward their college expenses.  This year we had excellent participation from each school and hope the best for every student.

Brethren –

I apologize for the late notice, but I would like to schedule the scholarship application reading/evaluation for this Saturday, May 24th, at 9:00 am. We have 16 from East Aurora and 12 from Iroquois. We will wrap it up before noon almost as a certainty.

College-ScholarshipFor those who have not participated in this, we read through the essays, scoring them to the criteria of the scholarship. We determine the winner from each school right after the reading. It is always an enjoyable morning, with the usual fun and fellowship, but here we get to enjoy some of the fruit of the labor that produced the scholarship money to begin with.

I would appreciate it if you would let me know whether you can make it.

David, Secretary
