On Friday, February 28th, Paumanok-Port Washington Lodge did something very special. The lodge rented out the Renaissance Room at the Grand Lodge of NY to hold a Special Communication. The work of the evening was studying the differences and similarities in ritual between 3 Masonic districts. We were joined by brothers from Weymouth United Masonic Lodge A.F.& A.M., Rural Lodge A.F.& A.M., and Milton Lodge A.F.& A.M. from the 8th Masonic District of Massachusetts as well as brothers from Blue Stone Mystic Tie Malta Doric Lodge no. 35 of the 5th Masonic District of New Jersey. The evening was very educational and hopefully will be the first of many joint ventures.

Towns were devastated, homes were lost and lives were turned upside down. Although the storm and destruction were unprecedented, more lives could have been lost and the world could have been a much harsher place if it wasn’t for the brave men and women that server everyday as first responders.

Paumanok-Port Washington lodge felt it was time that these men and women were responder2honored for their tireless work. Representatives from the different divisions of police, fire and rescue were invited for a dinner and plaque presentation thanking them for all their hard work.

It was a great honor to have such a nice turn out and we look forward to doing it again.
