COMMUNITY BUILDER AWARD — Irving Masonic Lodge is proud to announce that Mr. Bruce Burns has been selected as the recipient of the Community Builder Award for 2016.

This Award will be presented at a covered dish dinner in his honor on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 6:30 PM.
Your presence will be greatly appreciated by Bruce and our Lodge.  We hope to see you there!
The Lodge will provide the meat, drinks, and bread. All others are asked to bring a salad, vegetable or dessert.



HELP WANTED — Every Masonic Lodge elects and appoints Masonic Lodge Officers to execute the necessary functions of the lodge's life and work.  As the new Masonic year (2016 – 2017) approaches, Brother Senior Warden Carl Roberts prepares to be elected Worshipful Master of this Lodge.

The structure of the progressive "line" of officers is for a Brother to spend one year in each position learning the position's duties and a portion of the Masonic ceremonies.  Advancing through "the chairs", until he is elected as Worshipful Master.

Tradition allows no politicking or campaigning for an officer's position.  Any man, regardless of his social, business, or economic position outside the lodge room, may aspire to be Master of his Lodge.

The annual installation of Lodge Officers happens in June.  Make your wish to serve as an Officer of the Lodge known to Senior Warden Carl Roberts.  He will be happy to answer any questions you have.
