We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful Sunday afternoon to ID over 100 children and adults at the annual Port Washington Harborfest. Every year, Freemasons around the state of NY create free ID’s for 1000 of people. These ID’s are only used in case of a missing person and is tied into the Amber Alert System. There is no cost to anyone but the lodges creating the ID’s. It’s a great charitable event and once again a huge success for Paumanok – Port Washington Lodge #855.
This year we had a great turn-out for the Port Washington Memorial Day Parade. Joined by Glen Cove Lodge #580, Paumanok – Port Washington Lodge #855 had the best showing of brothers they have seen in a long time. We also dug out our famous masons sign along with a classic, we showed support for our fallen servicemen and women.
As a last hurrah for the 2013-2014 Masonic year, PPW #855 hosted a very successful Festive Board. There were over 60 in attendance with representation from just about every lodge in the district. A great time was had by all.
We also honored our years of service recipients and especially the R.W. Larry Tuck. Bro. Larry has been a Mason for 25 years and served 21 of them as treasurer. He was honored with the dedication of one of the Officers chairs which will forever be emblazoned with his name. Congrats Bro. Larry.
Congratulations go out to our newly raised Master Masons. Bro. Andrew Boico, Bro. Robert Seneca and Bro. Michael Presley were have been duly initiated, passed and now raised. Their eagerness for knowledge and love for the craft will surely prove to be a reward for the lodge. It is very exciting to see our lodge continue to thrive, grow and prosper.
