Harmonie Lodge No. 699 3rd Degree


Held on April 8th at the Sweet Home Temple Harmonie Lodge conferred the 3rd Degree of Masonry on three Brothers. Making this a very special night two Brothers were Lewis and raised by their fathers. One, in fact, was the first Brother under 21 raised in First Erie. The Lodge welcomed a large group of Candian Brothers that showed up as a surprise to witness the work. Very good work from Harmonie! We are expecting amazing things from these new Maser Masons!

Grotto at Saint Buffalo Saint Patricks Day Parade


The Prophets of Zuleika Grotto No. 10 ventured out in the cold Buffalo air to march in the Buffalo SaintPatrick’ss Day Parade on March 19th. With ll the events being held during the week by the City and at Harbor Center, this was easily the largest Parade our city has seen in some time. We even made the Buffalo News! Thanks so much for all that came out and help make this happen year after year.
