The Dover Lodge Lamp

Perhaps as you’ve entered the door of Dover Lodge you’ve noticed a distinctive lamp lighting the entrance from above. While a source of pride for the Brothers of Dover Lodge in its excellent craftsmanship and the esthetically pleasing way it illuminates our entrance, its story is much deeper. This work, which was restored in recent years by our own Right Worshipful Brother Phelps, was presented as a memorial gift to Dover Lodge in 1936. Please see the letter below that accompanied this generous gift upon its presentation.

Brothers Joseph A. and A. Horace Wolf, your names remain on the lips of your Dover Brethren. Thank you for casting your light upon every man that enters our Lodge to this very day.

Annual Meeting

Congratulations to the Brethren elected to office for the 2015 Masonic year! We’re pleased to announce that all elected positions were accepted by the Brethren voted to serve the history of Dover Lodge as officers for the ensuing year. Also congratulations to all appointed officers – all but one have also conveyed their acceptance! Dover Lodge looks forward to another year of growth and continued excellence in Masonry.

We also wish to congratulate our most recent petitioner, who after four months of visiting with the Brethren of Dover Lodge and partaking in our educational events was unanimously elected to receive the Mysteries of Freemasonry. Brethren, keep your eye on this web site for upcoming details of this deserving man’s scheduled night for his first degree!

Dress is business-casual, and the program is open to Masons and those interested in Freemasonry as well! Please join us at the Westlake Masonic Temple, and be a part of the further study of the Royal Art.

A Seed of Truth

Freemasonry is the world’s oldest Fraternal organization still in existence today. Written references to our Craft from circa 1390 C.E. exist to this very day, and point back even deeper into the mists of time. Ours is an ancient and honored Fraternity.

It is no secret that our storied past and strengths of our present are the stuff of legend. But did you know that some non-Masonic and esoteric organizations try to use Freemasonry in order to add an air of legitimacy to themselves? Come out this Builder’s Night on Thursday July 17th at 7:30pm to learn about several such organizations who use the lustre of Freemasonry to make themselves appear as legitimate heirs of our Royal Art. Dress is business casual; Master Masons only please!

Freemasonry and Ancient Egypt

Our thanks to the Brethren who joined Dover Lodge this past Thursday for our Builder’s Night, where we studied the ancient Egyptian structures known as “Cleopatra’s Needles” and their connection to our Fraternity! The Brethren enjoyed a lively discussion of the presentation put on by Brother Scott Davis, Dover Lodge’s newest Master Mason. We were fortunate indeed to have representatives present from no fewer than 4 Lodges!

During the Masonic year, the third Thursday of the month is known as “Builder’s Night” at Dover Lodge, where we spend the evening in ritually-oriented or Masonic esoteric study and practice. It is open to any Brother in good standing! Our programs will continue through summer darkness, so please check back for upcoming opportunities to explore the deeper aspects of our Gentle Craft.
