On Friday, January 11th, 40 brothers gathered at the Friendship Masonic Lodge to discuss the formation of Oregon’s newest Lodge. The proposal having met with strong acclimation, a petition was signed by those present and the name Enlightenment was chosen by the gathered Brethren.
RWB Richard Chase was chosen as Chairman, and MWB Richard Martin was elected as WM of the proposed Lodge. The stated purpose for the formation of the Lodge is to increase Masonic presence in the public eye, exemplify Ritual work and form strong Degree Teams to assist other Portland Lodges.
The petition will be presented to Esoterika at their February Stated meeting.
