Officers and Brethren celebrating after successful first degree

On the evening of Tuesday November 12, two new Brothers have now gone through their first degree with help from Brethren of the district. Bro. Steven Levenson and Bro. Thomas Jordan, who have been waiting almost a year, were initiated last night in our cozy Lodge room in company of many Brethren present. The degree went without a hitch and had two very impressed new Brothers who are looking forward into memorizing their work prior to their next step. The Lodge extends fraternal thanks VW:. Berdj Agopian, W:. Frank Sforza, W:. Michael LaRocco and W:. Brian Finger whom assisted us in performing an exemplary Entered Apprentice degree.

MSID at Party in the Park

Category : 2019 News

On Saturday October 5 at the Blumenfeld Family Park another successful Masonic Safety ID session took place. The Masonic Safety ID is an amber-alert ready personal safety kit that identifies a child or adult when either goes missing. The free kit includes the name, pictures, finger prints, health concerns and other personally identifiable information to assist the authorities in finding a missing person. In collaboration with the Amber-Alert system, the kit comes with an identification card and a compact-disk that can be used immediately by the police.

Like commercial kits available for a fee, our free service gathers all information but unlike those aforementioned none of the information is ever stored or distributed. Even the forms filled out during the process are given back to the parent or guardian giving peace-of-mind knowing the information will never go public or fall in the wrong hands. Adam Bernstein, chair of the MSID says “we hope you never use it, but should you ever need to, you’ll be glad to have it”.

Thanks to our Brethren, volunteers and candidates who gave us a hand setting up and breaking down. Your help and spirit made the whole gathering an outstanding success. “Many hands make hard work easy” said Brandon Sax, a Lodge member, and we could not agree with him more. Our heart-felt thanks go out to Residents Forward for allowing us to give back to the community we love. Thank you to The Landmark theater for providing us with electric power. Looking forward to next year’s Party in the Park where we are looking forward to participating continue helping to keep save all people in our community.
