WB Donald M. Price


Brethren, please join me in mourning the passing of Worshipful Brother Donald M. Price to the Celestial Lodge above. He is a Dover Lodge Past Master and a Knight of the York Cross of Honor. Our loss is indeed great.

Details of memorial services will be forthcoming so please check back for more information.

Solemn strikes the funeral chime! 
Notes of our departing time, 
As we journey here below, 
On a pilgrimage of woe. 

Brothers, now indulge a tear, 
For mortality is here! 
See how wide her trophies wave, 
O’er the slumbers of the grave. 

Here another guest we bring, 
Seraphs of celestial wing, 
To our funeral altar come, 
Waft a friend and brother home. 

Lord of all, below, above, 
Fill our hearts with Truth and Love. 
As dissolves our earthly tie, 
Take us to Thy Lodge on High.

Information Is Power

It is well known to any well-studied Freemason that information is indeed a powerful tool, but information in the wrong hands can lead to disastrous results. This applies to the esoteric aspects of Freemasonry as well as to the everyday mundane world. Advances in information technology have made daily life easy and convenient in many ways. There is one amazing advancement that has been available for many years and is beginning a massive proliferation to everyday consumers: the RFID credit card and the NFC cell phone.

Did you know however that this technology exposes the information contained in the cards to a casual passerby? Have a look at this video, and then continue reading after as to how you can protect yourself.
