Latest Blazing Star Updates

(Updated November 13, 2021)

In autumn we are reminded that we need to prepare for the long winter ahead. Extra care is taken to ensure we, our families, and fellow man will successfully endure the winter months and long nights. Extra food could be stocked, wood kept close for the fire, jackets, boots, and hats are a daily necessity. Sometimes we find we have extra and can help others and sometimes we need help. As Masons, we strive to always help those in need. Masonic Love extends beyond the Fraternity. Yes, we ensure all Brothers are well cared for but we also ensure that our community is also taken care of to the best of our abilities. If you know someone in need, please let us know. We have the means to help.

We have some very exciting news! We have five candidates ready to take their First Degree in Freemasonry. We will welcome these new Brothers as we were welcomed and as our Brothers before us were welcomed. They will become part of the world’s oldest Fraternity. They will share in a tradition that has bonded Brothers for hundreds and some say thousands of years. They are ready to take an important step into improving themselves, their communities, and the world.

We also have four other potential candidates who are interested in learning more about Freemasonry at Blazing Star Lodge. The process takes time and dedication and the rewards are amazing.

If you are interested in Freemasonry in East Aurora, NY, and want to help those in need, contribute to the community, and become part of a worldwide fraternity, please feel free to contact us for an in-person or Zoom meeting to learn more.

“Capronic” Password

The Brothers of Blazing Star Lodge are continuing a new tradition presented by W:. Glenn Capron. One of our tenents is Charity. W:. Capron had the simple yet profoundly impactful idea to substitute the password with a nonperishable food item during the COVID pandemic. We are continuing this small and easy gesture. We are keeping the Tenent of Charity active at Blazing Star Lodge.

WM James Andruczyk

Welcome back to the East W:. Andruczyk. W:. Andruczyk is filling in the Master’s chair this year while some of our officers advance through the chairs. We are excited to have W:. Andruczyk is back in the East! He is a great Worshipful Master.

Brothers Of The Bread Outreach

Brothers Of The Bread is the main Charitable outreach of Blazing Star Lodge. Started by Bro. Andy Egressy, Masons across New York State pickup up and deliver bread and other food to food pantries across the State. In October we supplied 14 local food pantries and just added another four food pantries helping those in need.

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 1818, 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 led by Brother Andrew Egressy.  We are interested in our community and the people who call East Aurora and surrounding areas, 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 a good and upstanding man, interested in improving your life and the life of everyone around you, 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.
