From the East


I would invite you to welcome OUR newest Master Mason, Brother Corey Luebbe. At the age of 25, Brother Luebbe joins our other “younger” members as the future of Far Hills Lodge.  

Along with his raising, OUR Lodge voted in a dues increase effective with the dues notice enclosed. With this increase it is projected that OUR Lodge will be financially strong through 2020. We can only stay strong as we look for and find future men to become part of OUR Lodge.

We have potentially 2 future members who have inquired about possible membership.  WE can not stop… WE must find those men who would make Good Masons! That being said, you may know someone who would be a great candidate who doesn’t have all the time to get his degrees the traditional way.

In 2019 there will be a GRAND MASTERS ONE DAY CLASS on May 4, 2019. More information will be available after Grand Lodge.

We are getting ready to end our Far Hills Masonic year. There will be 2 more meetings both in November.

1st, OUR Annual Stated Meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2018, for the purpose of electing your officers for 2018/2019, and the annual Far Hills Temple Board Report.  We will provide a FREE Spaghetti dinner beginning at 6:00pm with Lodge opening at 7:00pm.

2nd a SPECIAL Meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 5th for the purpose of installing OUR new officers who will lead OUR Lodge into the future. This again will be an open installation. Your ladies are welcome to join us to enjoy the festivities. Catered dinner begins at 6:00pm and Lodge will open at 7:00pm.

Finally, as I end my year as your Worshipful Master, I want to THANK ALL OF OUR MEMBERS!  We tried a lot of new things, made some changes, offered a lot of different social opportunities for the brethren to get together. Hopefully some of these things will interest you in returning to YOUR Lodge. We need YOU, to continue. We need to build on what began this year.

A special thanks to my officers. You had to put up with my ideas on how to get interest back into OUR Lodge, so WE will have a future. I’m happy to say that I will leave the East with no regrets. We have the ability to have a strong Lodge in the future. It will only take some of your time to help!!!  THANK YOU EVERYONE!

From the West


As we begin our journey into 2019, OUR Lodge needs YOUR help. We have a foundation to grow on, but it will take HELP!!  Your future officers are younger. They need your help and guidance. We are looking for OUR established members to feel part of OUR Lodge again.

Can you help us out with Lecture and Charges? The lectures can be broken in to small groups with a few brothers presenting them. Charges are smaller but still could be divided up too. What better way to show YOUR support of OUR Lodge then helping in the process to bringing in new members. The Officers can not do it all. WE NEED YOUR HELP & SUPPORT!!  

The Master Mason Degree Team also has some openings.  Some are speaking parts some are walking craft parts… Can You Help?

Please contact me at snowmobiler2855@gmail.com or call me at 937-760-2855.

For us to continue we must have support from YOU our members.  Won’t you join us in the future of Far Hills Lodge?
