Lodge of Instruction Announcements

Check back later for up-to-the-minute updates and announcements about Lodge of Instruction.


We hope you can join us for the Massachusetts 5th Masonic District September Lodge of Instruction meeting to be held on Tuesday, September 26th at Waltham Triad Lodge in Newtonville.

Our presenter will be Bro. David Newcomb and his wife and they will be discussing the Shrine Hospitals and Shrine Clowns (we may even have a clown or two in attendance).

This should be a fun and informative evening for all attendees.

A light dinner will be made available for Waltham Triad Lodge at 6:00 PM.

We anxiously look forward to having you as our guests for this first of the 2023-2034 Masonic year series of 5th District LOI Events.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any feedback, questions, or ideas for future LOI meetings.
