From The East

Brothers all,


Three months in 2021 have already passed. It's great to be back in Lodge and active.


In the community we have again been active with supporting DeMolay at a bowling event and providing much needed bottled water and Milk to the children at Life Haven.


In February, Mia Allen from Life Haven visited the Lodge and made a wonderful presentation with some amazing information and statistics. Masonicare made a heartfelt presentation related to the needs of many of the elderly residing at the facility. The importance for us to support them could not be greater. This kicks off the Wine and Beer Virtual event which raised more than $85,000.00 last year. 


For more fellowship opportunities we have added Pizza Nights. Our first was fun for all, held at Inferno Pizza North Haven. 


We have no plans of slowing down, just the opposite! Plans have been finalized for this year’s Pizza Challenge on June 11th. Inferno and the Big Green Pizza Truck combined will be donating the food, the event will be on the lawn of Moon Cutters. Lots of space to isolate!!! The beneficiary will be The Tommy Fund, research, and support of children with Cancer. 


Lodge business is also moving forward. We have a considerable backlog of EMR’s, interviews are active and our first EA degree was successful with 4 new brothers in March.


Please keep a close eye on the Schedule on the Hiram Lodge # 1 web page for times, dates, locations, and particulars. 


We have many educational presentations scheduled. To name a few, WB Nick Valinski will be running a mock trail, The Tommy Fund will be sharing their efforts with children’s cancer, RWB Scott Bumps will be presenting the 6Sigma process for Lodge community service and Brother Cedric Jacobson will be visiting to discuss Ritual, Reason and the Symbolism of the initiation process. Hope to see you soon.


Stay safe my brothers!

Keith Macdowall

Worshipful Master
