2016 Autumn Masters Message
Welcome to Autumn 2016. We’ve had a great 2016 so far, starting with very successful events such as the Shirley Martel Memorial Scholarship Banquet held on January 26, 2016, the Ye Old Table Lodge held on March 26, 2016, our annual spring and Autumn traffic detail at the Haul of Fame swap meet, the 2016 VJ-Day Parade, and a brewery/pub crawl as well as volunteering at Moriah Lodge 15's Annual Down East Maine Table Lodge in September.
Plans are already underway to start selling tickets to the 2017 Shirley Martel Memorial Scholarship Banquet scheduled for January 21, 2017.
As we get closer to December, we anxiously await the advancement of our 2 brother Fellowcrafts to Master Mason.
The T-Shirts designs are set and we are currently accepting orders for the shirts that the members will wear at Moosup Lodge 113 events like ChIP Events and Traffic detail at the Haul of Fame. Lodge event shirts are dark blue short sleeved with gold lettering and the traffic detail shirts are safety green long sleeved shirts. Please see the order sheet in the kitchen at the lodge building to place your pre-paid order.
At this time, all rental spaces are occupied. Very good news!
Through the planning of the building corporation and Past Masters, finances at Moosup Lodge 113 haven’t been better in years. We are still talking about sprucing up the dining hall to make it more rentable for events. A bit more of a financial cussion will be needed before we can embark on that project.
We are currently taking food donations for both Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for needy a local family. If donations are great, we will expand to 2 families. Giving is what we do as Masons.
If you are not on my weekly email blast list, please email me at
sand I’ll add you to the email lists.
In closing, I want to thank the officers and membership for voting me in as Master back in December and contributing so much to make this a good year at Moosup Lodge 113.
I wish you a wonderful and beautiful Autumn and Winter.

Worshipful Master, Moosup Lodge 113 AF &AM
Welcome to the Moosup Lodge website.
As Connecticut Freemasons we embrace the tenets of Friendship, Morality and Brotherly Love. We do this by using the teachings of Freemasonry to better ourselves, our community and each other. At our lodge we make Masons and here at our website we show you our history, activities and schedule of future events.
The Masonic Fraternity does not invite anyone to become a member, instead we wait patiently for the special man to knock on our door and seek admittance. Perhaps your visit here is that "knock" on our outer door
