New England Brotherhood Night

February 13, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Masons love to refer to themselves as “Traveling men,” and indeed, that’s one of the first things that we tend to tell new Entered Apprentice Masons. “Study hard, and get your Master Mason certificate so you can travel to other lodges.”

Well, here’s an opportunity for other lodges to travel to you:

New England Brotherhood Night

From the Grand Lodge of Connecticut website:

New England Brotherhood Night is an opportunity for masonic brothers from throughout New England to meet, make new friends, see old friends, exchange stories, share ideas, and sometimes even arrange an inter-jurisdictional visit or two! The evening is open to all Master Masons, and starts with a cocktail hour, followed by dinner, and finally wrapping up with a program.

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014
Cocktail Hour 5pm – Southern Barbecue Dinner 6pm – Program 7pm
Woodstock Academy – 57 Academy Rd, Woodstock, CT 06281

This event rotates throughout the six New England states, so each state only has the opportunity to host this event once every six years. “Next year’s” host state provides the program for “this year”. Past programs have included Hollywood writers, the men who planned and commanded the Osama Bin Laden raid, and the captain of the Coast Guard cutter who sailed out into the “Perfect Storm” attempting to rescue the Andrea Gail.

Proper attire is a jacket and tie. This is not an open meeting, so aprons and jewels are unnecessary. Reservations and payment must be made through the Grand Secretary’s office.  RSVP Deadline:  March 14th

I’ve been to these nights, and it’s a great way to meet Masons from around New England. Hell, it’s a great way to meet Masons from around your state that you might not normally run into.

Woodstock is in the Rhode Island corner of Connecticut, and is home to Putnam Lodge No. 46, which is noted for the members who pushed for the Connecticut & Rhode Island Grand Lodge merger a few years ago.

    So, like where were you last night? Couldn’t drive the 64 miles? I could have had a younger brother drive you. You missed a great time.

    I was cooking a pasta dinner for 100 people at the church. My wife (who was in charge of the event) was out of town, so I ended up in the kitchen. Once a steward…
