Past Masters Night 2015

PrintA Masonic Past Master is not someone who has simply been a Master of a lodge.  Becoming a lodge Master is often a long journey through the variety of officers’ positions.  By the time a brother becomes Master, he has likely already served for five, six, seven, or more years.  Therefore, the honorific of Past Master is a special distinction the brethren bestow upon this individual brother for his dedication.

Therefore, it is a truly special night when an entire corps of Past Masters come together to initiate a new candidate into Freemasonry.  On September 24, 2015, a cadre of Past Masters, led by Junior Past Master Lee Coleman, initiated Brother Gordon as an Entered Apprentice Mason.  The brethren of Modesto Masons and other area lodges came out in force to attend the degree and welcome Brother Gordon into the Craft.  Modesto Masons looks forward to helping our new brother through his degrees and watching him grow as a Mason.

Modesto Masonic Lodge no. 206 is under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California. Freemasons seek to improve themselves through enlightenment: making good men better. In addition to personal improvement, Masons help to create stronger communities through various philanthropic endeavors.

Stanislaus County DA Speaks at Constitution Night

Constitution Night 2015Modesto Masons observed our annual Constitution Night on Thursday, September 17, at the Masonic Center of Modesto. Birgit Fladagar, Stanislaus County District Attorney, spoke to the brethren and guests about the various aspects of the county’s prosecutorial office.

Ms. Fladagar began with a personal history of how she came into law practice and criminal justice. She then explained how Governor’s Brown’s Realignment program has impacted our county. Other topics included the effects of limited budgets on the prosecutorial staff and the use and implications of the Three Strikes law as it pertains to our county. Ms. Fladagar’s presentation generated considerable interest from the attendees, which included a question and answer segment. Modesto Masons sincerely thanks Ms. Fladagar for her insightful information, her efforts in service to our county, and for sharing some of her time with us.

Modesto Masonic Lodge is under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California. Freemasons seek to improve themselves through enlightenment: making good men better. In addition to personal improvement, Masons help to create stronger communities through various philanthropic endeavors.
