September 28, 2009 - POLITICS & FREEMASONRY

On Monday night we held our monthly Festive Board, affectionately referred to as "The Gathering of the Clan," which is not sponsored by any Masonic Lodge. It is simply a celebration of Freemasonry which is open to Masons, their families and friends, and potential candidates for the fraternity. I have written about this in the past, suffice it to say it is a great way for Masons to relax with their friends and family.

This month, our guest speaker made a presentation on "Politics & Freemasonry," something that is never discussed in Lodge. In his talk, he explained why Masons avoid the discussion of politics and religion in Lodge, stressing tolerance for the purpose of harmony. During his presentation, he referenced a recent article entitled, "In Search of the Hill's Freemasons," an entertaining piece which mentions the names of a handful of Masons serving in Congress.

The next Festive Board is scheduled for Monday, October 26th at 7:00pm. The guest speaker will discuss Firefighting Freemasons. Should be interesting.

Stay tuned!

Until next time.

All the Best,
Dunedin Lodge No. 192 F.& A.M.
Dunedin, FL, USA
"For the Good of the Order"
