EPHRATA LODGE NO. 665
FREE & ACCEPTED MASONS
From the East
Greetings Brethren and guests to Ephrata Lodge No. 665's website. January is over and we are into February. Petitions continue to come in which is always great to see.
We have a 1st and 2nd degree on the 11th and a 1st and 3rd on the 16th of this month. Please come out and support our new members and appreciate some wonderful ritual work by our line of officers. The officers have a lot of pride in the ritual work and as such it is a blessing to have a ritual team that performs simply fantastic work. Check the calendar for dates, times, and addresses as events approach.
Come to our stated meeting on February 9th for a great night of fellowship. We will be receiving our District Deputy Grand Master and recognizing our 50 year members.
Brethren and guests, the schedule for 2016 Masonic Blood drives has not been released yet. Once available we will make sure the dates and locations are posted. If you need to contact me before the dates are made available please use the contact us section or call the lodge.
Thanks for giving the gift of life with blood donations.
Your Masonic Blood Drive chairman,
M. Todd Hoak

Brethren, the "Help for our Heros" program, has almost reached the 1 million milestone simply from your pocket change donations. Please continue to be generous with your spare change that goes to this great cause. The basket to make any donations will always be on the table right outside the lodge room near the Tyler station as you enter.
We continue to receive petitions and therefore will be busy with degree work...always a good thing. For the officers and anyone interested in learning the ritual, please note the monthly ritual practice is on the Thursday prior to our stated meetings. I invite all our members and any visiting brethren to come out to support the officers and see the excellent degree work we enjoy delivering. It is also a great feeling for our new brethren to have a full sideline. So come and support your new brethren of Ephrata Lodge. If you haven't seen a degree in a while, I highly encourage you to come out as Ephrata Lodge delivers some of the best ritual around. The ritual work our great fraternity performs has such wonderful meanings behind it and if taken to heart will truly change how you live your lives. You can't hear the messages the ritual conveys enough. So come out and enjoy the brotherhood. See you at the next event.
