As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, the brothers of St. Paul Lodge, Hope Lodge, and our appendant bodies are focused on bringing the general public to our facility to learn more about what Freemasons actually do. Mark the following dates on your calendar and come out to 42 Central Street in Gardner. We guarantee a good time will be had by the entire family.
March 11th – 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm – Corn beef and Cabbage Dinner
Organized by the Gardner Shriners, this event is always a big hit. Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early with corn beef and cabbage and an introduction to the Shriners, a fraternity based on fun, fellowship, and the Masonic principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth.
March 18th – 11:00 am – 3:00 pm – Youth Appreciation Day
Did you know that Freemasonry has youth programs? DeMolay (for teens), Squires (for younger boys), and Rainbow (for girls) will all be present on March 18th, along with the Masonic brothers and family members who make these programs possible. Bring the whole family, get your kids signed up, and have some fun.
April 15: Masonic Open House and Colonial Festival
St. Paul Lodge, with help from our very own Colonial Masons Guild, will be hosting an Open House on Saturday, April 15th, with the assistance of Hope Lodge, Charles W. Moore Lodge of Fitchburg, and a number of Colonial reenactment and preservation groups. Three floors of the Masonic Building will be open to the public and we’ll be taking applications for membership in all Masonic bodies.
