Master Mason Degree

January 25th, 2020 – SAVE THE DATE!!

Brothers, I am pleased and excited to share with you that Oakland Lodge #140 will be conferring TWO Master Mason degrees on the above date. This will be the first Master Mason degrees in our new building. A light lunch will follow the ceremony.

It has been a couple of years since we have had the honor of doing this degree, so there is likely to be a “little rust” that needs to be polished before the big day.

We will be having practices for the degree on Thursday, January 16th and Thursday, January 23 at the lodge building. All officers are asked to make every attempt to be present for the practice sessions.

We look forward to seeing you all for this exciting event!!
