Family Day was Sunday, April 30th at Orange Lodge 36. This event featured an open event to the general public that was filled with lots of food, fun, prizes, and even some pies to the face. Orange 36 was lucky enough to have Mayor Kilsheimer join us for the presentation of the “Orange Howler”. Orange 36 also gave away an American Flag that was flown over the Capitol in Washington, DC. Stay tuned for more upcoming events in the future from Orange 36.
We had a recent visit and a presentation from the DeMolay and Eastern Star groups at our last meeting, along with 17th District Deputy Grand Master Willy B! We love having visitors to our lodge. We have a very active 2017 planned – come be a part of something special at Orange 36!
Family Day will be hosted at Orange Lodge 36 on April 30, 2017! Family Day is a day chosen by Orange 36 to host a day of family fun, free food, and family events to everyone!

You have passed your third degree exam and now you are a Master Mason.
So now what?
You have several choices in front of you.
1. Become an officer.
2. Become proficient in ritual work.
3. Move on to the other degrees.
4. Join one of the many other organizations only a Master Mason can join.
5. Or slowly fade away like so many do never to be seen or heard from, except for dues time.
There are other options but these are the most prevalent.
If you make the fifth choice in this list you will never know any more about Masonry than you know right now. You will never be any use to the fraternity nor will the organization ever be useful to you.
If you stay with one or more of the top four you will learn how a group can act as a team. You will see how much more the team can accomplish than just one person alone.
This does not mean that we are not individuals. Masonry teaches free thinking and this can only be accomplished through self-sufficiency. A determination to be free from all types of restraints is preferred.
Free thinking will open up your thoughts, your hopes, your aspiration. You will be able to express yourself by using your head and embrace those ideas with your heart.
