Latest Blazing Star Updates

(Updated May 6, 2021)

Our official year is coming to a close but Masonry never stops. We have a couple of old traditional meetings coming up to close out the year and we plan to keep the Fellowship, Masonry, and Charity moving all summer. We are excited to have some new candidates joining us soon. If all goes well we will have five or six new Brothers before summer. It is an exciting time to be part of Blazing Star Masonry!

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.

Blazing Star Lodge #694 F&AM – East Aurora

Blazing Star Lodge #694 F&AM
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 1869 (Current Charter – Blazing Star began as #294 in 1818 but the Morgan Affair forced it to close, more on that another time.), 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 lead by Brother Andrew Egressy.  We are interested in our community and the people who call East Aurora, New York 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 interested 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.

Since 1906 our Lodge stands 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.

Whence Came You? – 0506 – Masonic Repetition and Success Whence Came You? – Freemasonry discussed and Masonic research for today's Freemason

This week we ask just what it takes for you to commit to going back to Lodge. Greg not applies some tough filters to his lodge experience. Then, Brother Randy Sanders asks, “When's the last time you had a festive board for the heck of it?” He's got some great recommendations and I'll give you some of my own personal insights on the festive board event and what it brings to the Masonic experience. Finally, we'll ask the big question, ‘Does all that memory work really ever pay off–making a good man better?” We'll hear from a Ph.D. on understanding the neuroscience of repetition and what some Brothers take away from this repetition and memorization of ritual work. All this and more. Stay tuned!
