What is freemasonry? Misinformation and conspiracy abound. Is it a benign organisation or one bent on subverting government?

One Little Pebble

Several weeks ago, our Lodge hosted an Open House. We welcomed guests, friends and visitors, and at one point presented a program about a very special community project with which our Lodge had an opportunity to help. For those who could not make it to the Open House, this is a story about a community afflicted by a natural disaster, a family of 14 children, and one special person who decided to help.

This is "One Little Pebble" by Michael Neal on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them. 06/30/2017

Why you shouldn’t become a Freemason. Freemasonry is shrouded in a pop-culture mystique of danger and intrigue. Now I won’t comment on if any of those intrigues are true (hint), but one thing is for sure, Freemasonry has gotten…


Today Freemasonry is celebrating a special anniversary. Exactly 300 years ago on June 24th 1717, four London Lodges met at the Goose and Gridiron Tavern in St Paul's Churchyard and declared themselves a Grand Lodge. This date is known as the birth date of the Grand Lodge of England and establishment of the first Grand Lodge in the world.


Setup for our event underway. We hope for a great turnout. Moon Bounce, fire truck and a few other surprises by 10:30am.
