Our original schedule had us doing ritual practice on Monday at 630 pm and an FC exam on Tuesday at the same time. We will keep an eye on the storm track over the weekend to determine if we need to make any changes. Masonic education on Zoom will be the back up plan... if the power stays on. ... See moreSee less

Brethren, we are sad to announce that Br. Duke D. Allen, a 56-year Masonic Veteran, has Passed to the Celestial Lodge Above.

Br. Allen affiliated with Kempville Lodge as a 50-year Mason in 2015 from the Grand Lodge of Wyoming. Funeral arrangements are pending and may be out of state.

Duke was a good guy. I was always impressed that he noticed there was a pinch of cinnamon in the Shepard’s pie I made for an Autos meeting one year.

Noble / Brother Allen was my sponsor to join Khedive Shrine. We served together in three different bagpipe bands. I'll miss him greatly.

Sorry for the loss.

RIP

Thanks to everyone who attended Masonic education online tonight. The topic was the destruction of Solomon’s Temple and the construction (and destruction) of the second temple.

Thank you worshipful for our continued education.

Many thanks to everyone who came out and donated food for the food bank on Saturday. We collected 250 lbs of food as well as $80 which was used to purchase more food. Our year to date totals are an incredible $643.00 and 1513 lbs of food!

Special thanks to MOTY Bob Hughes, our Lodge Food Bank Coordinator, for being at the Lodge to accept donations this weekend and for delivering the food to the Church of the Ascension food bank next door.

I understand they are especially low on soups, vegetables (particularly pork and beans), peanut butter, and jelly.
