Fortune Lodge 788 Visit - Wed Apr 27, 2016

It was an exciting night for the Brethren of Harmonie Lodge as 14 members of Fortune Lodge 788 came all the way in from North Collins to pick up the traveling gavel - and boy did they pick a night.
The Brethren of Harmonie were running some of their newly raised brothers through an education program, including the 3'rd degree historical lecture and question and answers.  There was also a lodge walk around and masonic etiquette lesson.

We were very exited to welcome our Brothers from Fortune and look forward to visiting them in turn.  Remember - they meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.  It was a tradition of Concordia Lodge to grab the gavel back every time it traveled away.  Lets renew this tradition.

3rd Degree of Masonry - Apr 16, 2016

This past Saturday, the Brethren of Harmonie Lodge 699 had the pleasure and honor of putting on a 3rd Degree for 5 worthy brothers. Of particular interest is the familial connection for some of the newly raised master masons who were raised with the assistance of fathers or grandfathers.

Master's Work Presentation - 4/14/2016

A Harmonie Lodge tradition is to not only have our candidates demonstrate suitable proficiency in their labors, but to also present a Master's Work - which is a personal work in an area that interests the candidate that pertains to The Craft and their lives - some Fellowcrafts work predominately with their hands, some with their minds - but all with their hearts.

Wine with Neil - Sun Apr 3, 2016

The Lodge welcomed about 10 brothers and their partners to another "Wine with Neil" - at The Wine Room, owned and operated by Brother Neil Kratzer.

A good time was had by all - This was not your average wine tasting.  Bro. Neil went over the different types of wines in flights and helped attendees discern their personal tastes - what to pair wines with and how to find others that they might enjoy.
