A group of Master Masons talk about topics of Masonic interest--each from their own unique perspective. You'll find a wide range of subjects including history, trivia, travel, book reviews, great quotes, and hopefully a little humor as well on topics of interest for Freemasons and those interested in the subject of Freemasonry.
A Masonic Table Lodge Benjamin Franklin Lodge No. 83, MN
A Brother sent this to me, and I'm not sure of its origin--all I had was the name of the author. I hope Bro. A. J. Disbow doesn't mind my sharing it. I thought it was pretty funny. It's long been known that Masons like to eat, in fact, we have something called a "table lodge" that allows us on special occasions to eat while we have our meeting. Well, in truth, table lodge or not, we eat about every time we meet, almost without exception. Even if we're getting together on a Saturday to shampoo a carpet in the lodge, I guarantee somebody is going to ask about donuts.
There is even an organization called High Twelve International that is basically a lunch club for Freemasons and their wives. A group of us in Urbana-Champaign (home of the University of Illinois) are working on chartering a brand new chapter of this organization called Illini High Twelve. We're very excited about how it's taken off in just a few months. So I'm posting this as an ode to the (hopefully) charter members of the Illini High Twelve in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois.
