Welcome to the online home for Oshkosh Masonic Lodge #27
Message from the Master
My vision for 2013 is to make Freemasonry relevant in today’s society. The key word is relevant. We have designed our plan to include activities that will enhance our visibility in the Oshkosh community and will help answer that question, “What are Masons anyway?”
We will be focused on accomplishing very specific goals. For example, our charitable focus has and will continue to be on children. From college scholarships, school media center donations, soccer and baseball sponsorships, youth groups, and much more. We are particularly proud to charter Boy Scout Troop 601 and assist them in creating an incredible experience for the Scouts.
We live in a very different world than the one that I grew up in. Children, including my thirteen year old twins, and families today face challenges that are different from previous generations. One constant through all of the changes over the many centuries is Freemasonry. We are all aware of many prominent figures in history that are Masons, such as President George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. But much closer to home, we have a foundation of Freemasonry that we have the honor and responsibility to build upon. When I see the names of Oshkosh Masons that came before me, I am truly humbled. Many of the streets in Oshkosh are named after Masons! Our fraternity attracts men who desire to make themselves and those around them better. I am honored to be associated with this incredible group of men and can’t wait to get to work!
In 2013, I feel that it is vital that we make a conscious effort to identify Freemasonry’s role in today’s society and ensure that we are relevant. We need to answer the question, “How do we make a positive impact in our community, now and in the future?”
With the goal of being relevant in mind, Freemasonry in Oshkosh will continue to thrive and be integral in making our community a better place to live for decades to come. I invite you to join us in our work!
