Local Masonic Lodge #179 attendees at recent 2019 Winesong event. Pictured above L-R: Karen & Greg Egelston, Larry Jennings, Robert Scott, Dori & Don Buckingham.
These Masons and their wives were proud to man the Merchandise Shoppe at the 35th Winesong Charity Auction & Tasting. It was a wonderful opportunity for them to meet the attendees and other volunteers at this wonderful event for the benefit of the Hospital Foundation. Masons are always happy to support community events. We will be competing at the upcoming Fort Bragg Food Bank Chili & Soup Competition on Saturday October 26 at Pentecost Hall, from 5 to 7 PM.
Mendocino Masonic Lodge No. 179 is proud to celebrate September as Constitutional Observance month, in conjunction with the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of California. It is important to remember the Constitution of the United States is the foundation of our democratic government and responsible for the multitude of freedoms we enjoy today! Wanna know a well-kept secret??? Many of the founding fathers of our country were Freemasons. Through their focused efforts the Masons developed a society that has promoted democracy and established a new order based on upholding the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. All Masons have long pledged to uphold the peace and order of our good society by demonstrating allegiance to our country and obedience to the laws under whose protection we live. Furthermore, as Masons, we strive to set an example for others in our society and communities through demonstrating compassion, kindness, temperance, and respect alongside our storied principal tenets of brotherly love, relief, and truth. We invite you to join us as we truly honor our past. Our foundational understanding of democracy will continue to be a source of inspiration and knowledge as we all work together to shape our future.
