This year the First Masonic District has implemented a new program, “Mason of the Month”, which highlights the achievements of a select few members from our district. Each “Mason of the Month” is nominated by their peers in Freemasonry.
This month [January] we are happy to announce that Brother Tyler Barto, Ashara-Casiphia Lodge No. 551 has been nominated for recognition by RW Brother Larry Derr. On behalf of the entire district, we congratulate Brother Barto on his achievements and for all he has done for Freemasonry.
Mason of the Month is sponsored by Masonic Scarves [www.MasonicScarves.com].
This year we are kicking things off with the updated release of F1RST! F1RST was developed as a district-wide magazine back in May 2019. We wanted to put a new spin on the traditional old newsletter format. We hope you’ll agree this new look will bring the First Masonic District into the newest century.
We are excited to share with you all the latest updates from within the district, not just from our lodges, but also our Masonic Youth groups, Member contributions, appendant bodies, and more!
Dinner is served at 6:00 and the Stated Meeting will begin at 7:00PM. A separate email reservation for dinner is required. If you plan to join us for dinner please contact Worshipful Master Todd Hoak at Melly5454@gmail.com. There is no charge for dinner, but a generous donation to the Lodge Scholarship Fund is appreciated.
