District A Lodges 482 & 487 Come Together
On April 7, for the first time, members of Robert A. Lamberton Lodge No. 487 and Athelstan Lodge No. 482, both of Philadelphia, held a Shadow Lodge for the sole purpose of unity between the two lodges. Both lodges' stated meetings fall on the first Tuesday of the month. Robert A. Lamberton Lodge hosted the meeting in Ionic Hall of the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. Bro. Robert Burns, District Deputy Grand Master for Masonic District A, visited for the evening and the guest speaker, John C. Sherwood, gave a talk on developing and keeping memory skills sharp.
This was the second time the two lodges have come together. In November 2008, they held a Table Lodge which was attended by Bro. Robert A. Ciampitti, Sr., then-District Deputy Grand Master. Both events were well attended and the brethren shared wonderful evenings of fellowship.Members of both District A lodges pose for a picture in Ionic Hall.
Time Found & Restored
At a recent stated meeting of Adelphic Lodge No. 424, Jamestown, Bro. William R. LeBarron, P.M., presented an antique Masonic clock to Worshipful Master Randy L. Kareha, P.M.
Bro. LeBarron found the clock, built in 1862, on eBay, purchased and restored it and donated the treasure to his brothers. It is now the official timepiece of the lodge.
