May Flower Lodge A.F. & A.M.


Hello Brothers, just a quick reminder about trivia tonight. I am so excited to see you all, I have been working a lot and can not wait to see you all. PS I took the day off to do this cause I miss you all. So come on through if you can, it will be fun, thank you again.
Brethren, I have great news! We have been given a Hammond Organ to replace ours, which is barely functioning. I checked the 'new' one out today - I can't wait to get it to its new home. That is where I need your assistance. Kenny and I hope to move it from Weymouth on Tuesday late morning or early afternoon if possible. We need the assistance of two Brothers. The organ is located on the ground floor of a home and right next to the front door. 4-5 front steps , a short walkway to the driveway and onto the trailer. The weight is approximately 215 pounds, so not TOO bad. We will use Kenny's trailer and dollies if needed. Please let me know if and when you are available - we will need maybe ~2 1/2 hours of your time. Thanks!
Brethren, does anyone have an infrared thermometer that we could borrow for Tuesday night's Communication? Please contact me.
Brethren, I have just emailed out important information regarding the September Lodge Communication that will be held on this coming Tuesday, Sept 1. If you did not receive the email, please contact me by email [email protected] and I will forward it to you.

Brothers, I will be conducting tonight's Zoom gathering from the Lodge as a test for next week's communication and the Kenstallation. Same meeting ID and password as usual.
May Flower Brethren, we'll be Zooming at 7 with the usual link. Sorry for the late reminder; it's been a busy couple of days.
Good morning Brethren, no May Flower Zoom tonight. Dont forget to sign up for LOI tomorrow night at 7.
Brethren of May Flower Lodge, the invitation to the July Regular Communication (to be held as a ZOOM Meeting) has been sent to all officers and Brothers who requested it. If you would like to be included in this important meeting, please email me by midnight tonight. The meeting is tomorrow, Tuesday, July 7th at 7:30 pm.
Brethren, as I'm sure you are aware, May Flower's Table Lodge has been cancelled. A Brother from another Lodge purchased two tickets from me at May Flower one night. I did not remember his name but I think they were actually purchased for two other Brothers. Please message me the ticket #'s and I will refund the $.
Brothers of May Flower Lodge - If you would like to join our weekly May Flower Lodge Zoom tonight and every Tuesday at 7pm, please email me at [email protected] and I will send you the link and password. We keep it brief, 30 minutes, to bring everyone up to speed as to what is going on in the district and at May Flower.

Happy Evacuation Day!

Commemorating the day that the British left Boston on March 17th in 1776. Earlier on March 5th, Washington's troops moved cannon captured at Fort Ticonderoga by Henry Knox to Dorchester Heights. Having the advantage over the British fleet, despite attempts to fight back, the British would decide to withdraw to Nova Scotia. The colonial troops would reenter Boston cautiously due to the presence of smallpox. Thus ended the almost 11 month Seige of Boston which had begun on April 19th, 1775 after the battle of Lexington and Concord.


March 10 1776
Washington ordered the cannons firing on Boston to stop as the British began loading their transport ships for evacuation. In their haste British cannons were spiked and ammunition they did not have room for was thrown into the harbor. Bands of loyalist ransacked shops and homes then loaded their stolen goods onto the transport ships.


Today, the Quarterly Communication of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts will take place in Boston. Best Wishes to the Grand Lodge officers and attendees for a productive session.

Pictured is the previous Grand Lodge of Massachusetts building on the corner of Tremont and Boylston Streets in Boston. The Grand Lodge occupied this building from 1867 to 1895, when it was damaged by fire and torn down. The current Grand Lodge building was constructed on the same spot, completed in 1899.

March 5, 1770: The confrontation known as The Boston Massacre took place. The event was heavily publicized by leading Patriots, including M.W. Paul Revere, who produced this famous engraving of the incident.

The building in the center of the background is the Old State House, which still stands in Boston. This building would later house the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts for a short time.


Great breakfast put on by some fine people.


March 3, 1863: George Elbridge Boyden was raised a Master Mason in Montacute Lodge in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Bro. George Elbridge Boyden was an Architect by trade. He and his father were partners in the firm of E. Boyden & Son, which designed many prominent buildings in the City of Worcester during that era.
Bro. Boyden was a very active and well respected Mason in Worcester. He was particularly instrumental in helping to bring the Scottish Rite to Central Massachusetts in the 1860s. He was the 2nd member of the Valley of Worcester to receive the 33°, coroneted in 1884.

The current Grand Lodge of Massachusetts building is not the first Grand Lodge building to stand at the corner of Tremont and Boylston Streets in Boston. It’s not even the 2nd Grand Lodge building to have stood on that spot. Our current building is actually the 3rd Grand Lodge building on that particular plot of land and the 4th Grand Lodge building to have stood on Tremont Street. Pictured is the old Winthrop House, on the corner of Tremont and Boylston Streets, which was purchased by the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts in 1859. This building housed the Grand Lodge until 1864, when it was destroyed by fire. Another Grand Lodge building was built on the same spot in 1867, but that too was damaged by fire and leveled in 1895. Our current Grand Lodge building was again built on the same spot, completed in 1899.
