Dinner is always a special event at Buford Masonic Lodge #292. We invite you to join us at 6:30 pm (Come early) before our Regular Communication which begins at 7:30 pm. This year as in many years we have some excellent cooks in the kitchen.
Our meetings are the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, with the exception of November and December when we have only 1 meeting on the 2nd Thursday of those months, due to Holidays.
Come and join us. You’ll be glad you did!!

IF you weren’t at the last meeting celebrating WB Robert ‘Big Bob’ Phillips 50 Year Apron Presentation, you sure missed a great time. I believe the final count was 109 in attendance. What a glorious evening for WB Phillips and Buford Lodge! Our own Brother Ricky Williams treated us to a fantastic meal for this memorable occasion. Thank you Brother!!

Brother Wiley presents PM Lee Pope with a PM Apron for his 2020 service as WM of our lodge at the January 14, 2021 meeting.
Thanks to brother Bill Garrison for these excellent pictures.
It looks like it will fit just perfectly.

At this posting, we have had 3 meetings since the COVID-19 Pandemic started. We are meeting at the normal time of 7:30 pm without the enjoyment of a meal at 6:30. These are strange and difficult times. Social distancing is being observed as we sit at least 6 feet apart with masks on. For those with breathing issues, we are permitted to remove our mask while seated.
Degree work is not being conducted for obvious reasons. The business of the lodge is being handled since bills keep coming in and repairs continue to be needed.
It is very good to see our brothers and share stories of how we and our families are coping with the “new normal”.
UPDATE: our WM has notified our members of the following:
The Grand Master has sent out his ruling about our meetings. There are multiple points that he made but I will try to sum most of them up.
10) We will have hand sanitizer(as we can find it) placed around the lodge and we will clean before and after the meetings.
Our first meeting back will be Thursday, June 25th. There will be no dinner so the meeting will begin at 7:30p. If you have a concern that you would like addressed and don’t feel comfortable coming to lodge, please reach out to me or one of the officers for us to bring it up before the lodge. Big decisions that need to be made about the lodge will likely be tabled until we can reach out to members and get more input. Please let me know what concerns you may have and I look forward to getting through this with y’all and looking towards the future.
