Aid for Friends

A few members of Tacony Lodge and girls from Philadelphia Assembly No. 47, International Order of Rainbow Girls, a Masonic Youth Group, volunteered their time on a Monday night at a local food bank. Volunteering for causes such as this is always a worthy cause but showing our youth the benefits of volunteering will instill a sense of respect and humility in them. Great job brethren and girls!

August Stated Meeting

A Stated Meeting of Tacony Lodge No. 600 was held on August 21 in Egyptian Hall at the Grand Lodge Masonic Temple. After a fantastic meal at Maggiano’s Italian Restaurant, two brothers were raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason! One an Air Force veteran and the other the father of a Master Mason. It’s not every day that a son gets to help raise his father! The Bible presentation was performed and our new Master Masons were charged to continue seeking further light. There were over ten visitors in attendance for this rare summer meeting. A great night was had by all!

The Masonic Family

July 17, 2018: Stated Meeting

Tacony Lodge No. 600 held its first ever meeting in July rather than calling off from labor. This allowed us to continue our work and afforded brethren from other lodges a rare opportunity to visit our lodge in the summer. Our program for the evening was on the Masonic Family where representatives from 12 Masonic organizations briefly discussed their body or club and what charities each was associated with. Among those represented were the York and Scottish Rite bodies, Rainbow and DeMolay Youth Groups, Shrine, Grotto, High 12, Order of the Eastern Star and Amaranth, and the Tall Cedars. After our program we moved to the dining hall where we had a meal consistent with the Taco Tuesday theme. After dinner and an hour of fellowship, we returned to the lodge room to confer the Fellowcraft Masons degree on Bro. Ritchie Pepito. The lodge was closed in harmony around 10:00 P.M.
