Message From The East


              Thank you for you for voting me into the East. I look forward to being of great service to the lodge this year. Buford is an amazing lodge and we will continue to build on our solid foundation.
              This year I would like to focus on community and communication. We will improve our presence in the community. This is why many of us got into Masonry and we will create opportunities to be of service to our community. A big part of our community is involving our family. Family is so important for Masonry to continue. Our families need to see the people we go to lodge with and understand the connection we have with one another. This will help the world at large to be convinced of our good effects. Communication is key to a successful year of the brethren being involved. We will focus on ensuring that the lodge knows what is planned and have plenty of time to get it scheduled.
               I hope to get plenty of business done as well as have a little fun. I want everyone to look forward to coming to lodge and seeing our brothers. We will complete our business and also leave with something new that we might not have known before.

               The officers of Buford lodge are excited and I look forward to this year with such a strong team. The officers have many ideas that we are going to try. We will continue to improve ourselves and set Buford for more successful years to come.

Dare To Be Different

 Would you dare to be different?

Living the life of a Mason is a life different from most any ordinary life. A Mason is loyal to his word, his bond, his family, his country and above all Loyal to his GOD!

To live the life of a Mason would mean NOT doing things that you would have done in the past, handling situations in a manner befitting the dignity of a Mason and an upstanding man of faith. Not allowing yourself to be placed in a situation that would bring question to your Morality. Being up front and honest in your dealings with EVERYONE, not just another Mason.

To walk the life of a Mason would mean YOU represent Freemasonry in everything you do; it will be no secret that you are a Mason, lots of people will know and they WILL judge Freemasonry as a whole by YOUR actions.  

If you think this would be the type honored life you would like to live, then seek out a Mason you know and ask how you would go about joining, ask for that elusive petition and get the ball started!

Good Luck in your Masonic journey. It will be a life long joy to be a part of and to pass down to your children. In this journey you will meet friends who will become brothers, and this relationship will last for as long as you desire.
