The following are a couple pictures from Grand Lodge 2019. We hope to see you at Annual Communication next year!

The pictures below are a newly constructed Lodge at the Grand Lodge Masonic Temple. The 1st picture below shows the Lodge’s library room with tons of Masonic literature both new and historic. The 2nd picture below shows the Lounge and fireplace area that is decorated with encased Masonic memorabilia. Towards the right of the second photo is a wet bar, kitchen, and dining area (not photoed). The third photo is inside the new Lodge room. The Lodge itself has an incredibly modern design in its’ use of ambient LED lighting, marble, woods, and the acoustically designed materials. It’s really something special, and definitely worth seeing in person.
