East Aurora Sidewalk Sale 2022

The Brothers of Blazing Star Lodge joined the East Aurora Sidewalk Sale yesterday serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and the in-famous Dogaburger! The weather was perfect, sunny with a nice breeze to keep things cool. Everyone had a great time and it is always amazing getting out and mingling with the neighbors. The Fisher-Price Collectors Club members were selling their toys in the Lodge and from the sounds of things they had a successful and fun day too (without the breeze).

We do these fundraisers to help us continue our charitable contributions, specifically Brothers Of The Bread where we pick up bread and other overstocked perishable items from manufacturers and supply local food pantries with much-needed food. We are on track to supplying over 30,000 loaves this year. Be assured that all proceeds generated through those who purchased hot dogs, hamburgers, or drinks from us will go to a good cause. Thank you for your support.

Check out that heat! Don’t touch that! It’s hot!

See you next at the Toy Town Car Show! Sunday, August 28, 2022. Would you like something other than hot dogs and hamburgers? Let us know, all suggestions are welcome and considered.

Sad News To Report

My Brothers,

It is my sad duty to report the passing of Brother Erwin Kent to the Celestial Lodge in the Sky.  Our Brother was born in 1926, Initiated on February 11, 1947, Passed on March 11, 1947, and Raised to the sublime Degree of Master Mason on April 8, 1947.  Brother Kent laid down his working tools on May 13, 2022, at the age of 96.  We honored our Brother at our Old Timers’ Night for his 75 years of faithful service to The Craft.

Worshipful Kent was our oldest surviving Past Master.  He even had the distinction of being the oldest Past Master of the entire Erie District.  He served as Master of Blazing Star Lodge #694 in 1956.
 
 Please join me in sending thoughts are prayers for the Kent family.

“Well done thou good and faithful servant.  Enter thou into the joy of the Lord” Amen.


More Sad News To Report

Called from labor

It is my sad duty to report the passing of Brother Gordon Earl Offhaus to the Celestial Lodge in the Sky.  Our Brother was born in 1936, Initiated on March 28, 1961, Passed on April 11, 1961, and Raised to the sublime Degree of Master Mason on May 23, 1961.  Brother Offhaus laid down his heavy working tools Sunday, June 5, 2022, at the age of 86.  Our Brother gave 61 years of faithful service to The Craft.  

Unfortunately, the only information I have about Brother Offhaus is that he was a farmer by trade.  Quite fitting for a rural Lodge like ours.  If anyone has additional information please send me a note.  Please join me in sending thoughts are prayers for the Offhaus family.
