Latest Blazing Star Updates

(Updated January 9, 2022)

During the cold long nights of Winter, we are comforted because of the work we accomplished in Autumn to prepare for these days. As the world hibernates pulling back some energy to attend to personal needs, Masons continue their work. Our charity works continue to help those in need. Brothers of the Bread never stops picking up bread and ensuring local food pantries have as much as they need to help their communities. Our meetings are full of Fellowship, Brotherhood, enlightening education, and lots of fun. 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.

Five new Brothers joined our Lodge in December. January marks the first meeting of a lifetime to come. We hope all had a great experience and are ready to pick up the working tools of a Freemason to continue to advance their journies in Masonry. Welcome Brothers, we are happy you decided to join us.

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.

This week, we hear Darin A Lahners' continued op-ed on "Whither are We Traveling." Can we expect Freemasonry to retain its past glory and prestige unless the level of leadership is raised above its present position? Darin has a unique perspective on this. Having been a master of a couple of different Lodges in a great mix of both city and rural areas. You're not going to want to miss it. Then we hear from Illustrious Brother Steven L. Harrison in an all-new Masonic Minute. Who is Elvis Wingo? Well, in short, a Masonic Superman. In this one, he outlines one of Freemasonry's gems–a doctor, a child genius, and a whole lot more. Finally, we'll wrap it up with a contemplative exercise on a particular Tarot card. Which one is it? The only hint I'll give you is, "A loss of three. A gain of two. And, it's inversed.
