Bike For Books
Our Lodge sponsors the Masonic Bikes for Books program to encourage students to read. Evidence shows that schools participating in the program are witnessing improved reading scores among their students. Books also enlighten, inspire, bring happiness and success, challenge our perspectives and provide comfort at difficult times in our lives. Students are invited to participate in the program, and each time they read an age appropriate book, their name will go into the drawing; the more they read, the better their chances of earning a bike and safety helmet, which will be presented before the school closes for the summer. We have the following schools that participate in the program. Lincoln Ackerman, Hampton Falls, - Hampton Academy, Hampton - Seabrook Elementary, Seabrook.

Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award - Bro. Bud Desrochers
Freemasonry's relationship with the Boy Scouts started with a Freemason named Daniel Carter Beard. Beard was made a Mason in Mariner's Lodge No. 67, New York City, NY, and later affiliated with Cornucopia Lodge 563, Flushing, NY. In the late 1800's he founded a male youth program called the Society of the Sons of Daniel Boone. By 1905, the program had become The Boy Pioneers. The man who would create the first Boy Scouts, and be known as its founder, was Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Great Britain. Lord Baden-Powell, who was not a Mason, read of Beard's program, and based on his own military experience, developed what is known as the Boy Scouts. In 1910, the Boy Scout program came to America when Beard merged his organization into the Boy Scouts of America and became its first National Commissioner.
Beard, known affectionately as Uncle Dan by millions of Boy Scouts, worked tirelessly to create the Scouting Program that exists today. He developed the elements of the Scout badge and the Scout uniform, and wrote and illustrated various early publications of the Boy Scouts of America. Beard exemplified the Masonic ideals throughout the Scouting program.
The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouter Award is an honor due to members of the Masonic Lodge who act as role models and provide dedicated service to the young men in the BSA. The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Award not only supports the Masonic relationship through the man who brought Scouting to America, but proclaims the integrity of the recipient who is honored by receiving the award.

2020 Bathroom Renovations
This was a project that was started in June and we finally completed it in September 2020. We still need to finish up the kitchen area. Due to the fact that the plumbing went into the kitchen we had to upgrade to current codes.
All the work is now up to code so we now have two ADA compliant bathrooms downstairs. We also needed a bathroom upstairs for the Lodge room. This is completed and it is ADA compliant.
Thanks to the hard work of Jay Ring, Dick Cooper, Nathan Page and those members that were able to give us there time and labor.
It was a labor of love and it is finally completed.
