Masonic Bike Ride Helps Bedford Fire Department

By districtadmin - Posted on 09 July 2010

 To raise funds for his town's Fire Department, Gordon Huggins of Frank W. Thompson Lodge in Bedford completed a major bike ride throughout the 14th District.  

This ride was also to commemorate the 235th anniversary of the death of General and Dr. Joseph Warren at the Battle of Bunker Hill. 

Dr. Warren was Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts at the time of his  death.  Brother Huggins began early on the morning of June 17 starting at the Caleb Butler lodge in Ayer.  He stopped at Tahattawan Lodge in Littleton, Joseph Warren-Soley lodge in Lincoln, Corinthian Lodge in Concord, Frank W. Thompson Lodge in Bedford, Simonds Lodge in Burlington, and Washington and Simon W. Robinson Lodges both in Lexington.  He paused long enough at each lodge building only long enough to take a picture of his bike parked out in front.  His journey was not without incident, however.  He did have to contend with one flat tire.  Thankfully, he carried a spare tube and after a quick repair he was on his way.

The funds raised will provide for the purchase of educational materials the Fire Department will use in conducting public safety educational programs.

50 Year Past Master Honored by DDGM

By districtadmin - Posted on 12 May 2010

The RW DDGM Ken Pfeiffer had the distinct pleasure of awarding Wor. Clark Paige with his 50 year Past Master's diploma on Monday, May 10th.

Clark Paige 50 yr past master award

Wor. Paige was master of Caleb Butler Lodge back in 1960 and continues to be active in the lodge, serving as lodge secretary for many years until just recently when we reliquished that post.

RW Pfeiffer stopped by the lodge unexpectedly, announcing himself at the door during the regular business meeting. In a bit of showmanship (and to hide his intent), he had all the past masters present come to the East and line up in order of seniority. He then thanked each man starting from the most junior and finally got to Clark exclaiming 'You're the last one standing, stay here because we have something for you..'. He then presented Clark with his diploma and thanked him for his years of service to the Masonic Fraternity.

Clark's son and grandson were in attendence, having known ahead of time of the presentation. Brian Paige expressed how proud everyone in the family was about the award. Wor. Clark then thanked the brethren assembled and was escorted once around the lodge to a standing ovation.

Corinthian Lodge makes a historic discovery!

By corinthian - Posted on 13 April 2010

While working in the attic above the lodge room last year, Wor. Randall Oxley and Wor. John Ritchie made a great discovery... but didn't know it at the time.  Very recently we learned what was discovered and we are simply stunned... as you will be too.

Please join us on May 7th when we share our discovery with the public.  We will have a social gathering beginning at 5:30 pm with the unveiling ceremony to begin at 7:00 pm.  Dinner will follow, but is not required to attend the event.

Grand Lodge representatives will be present and we hope to have several authorities from the National Heritage Museum, Massachusetts Historical Society and the Paul Revere House present as well. The news outlets will also be present.

Don't miss your chance to witness history in the making!

If you plan to attend dinner, please RSVP at http://www.concordmasons.org/discovery
