    Norfolk Lodge hosted its first annual Cigar Smoker this August, just one example of the fraternal activities hosted by the Lodge this past year .  There was a great turnout event with Masons travelling from as far away as Chatham to enjoy good food, good company and good cigars.  It is time of the year when the Lodge does not meet.


    Besides good food, a bag full of high-end cigars, and plenty of other refreshments, there was a demonstration of hand-rolling of cigars by Cuban native Roxana Perez. She even took some time to show our own, Bro. Dustin Briere, how to roll his own!


    A great time was had by all who attended the event, and the Lodge hopes that we will be able to host the event again next year.

    The Norfolk Lodge officers would like to congratulate two brothers for completing major milestones. First of all congratulations to Wor. Brother Chris Blood who completed the Boston Marathon on April 17th. He ran for this year for Dana Farber. This held a great deal of significance as he ran in the memory of his uncle, John H. Bergstrom who lost his battle to cancer last November.


    Second, our Junior Warden Jared LaLiberte finished his second 5k of the season with a personal best of 34 minutes in the Boston Athletic Association 5k. Congratulations to both brothers.

After a quick business meeting the Lodge received the Grand Master of Masons in Massachusetts, along with a distinguished suite of visitors. The Grand Master then presented R.W. Scott D. Inglis with the Distinguished Service Medal, also referred to as the Joseph Warren Medal.


    The Joseph Warren medal is a given to a brother who has served his community, church, and lodge. R.W. Inglis was proposed by Wor. Centola during his term. After the ceremony the Grand Master closed the Lodge in Ample Form and the members, along with their families and guests adjourned to the dinning room for a great meal and fellowship.

    For the fifth straight year Norfolk Lodge hosted its annual family picnic. This year there was worries that the weather might not be in our favor, for the first time ever but when the time came for the picnic the clouds and rain broke and the sun came out was great day to spend out in the sun with each other.  


    Around thirty people including brothers and their families attended this year. There was plenty of good food and a bouncy course,which both adults and children enjoyed immensely. It was a great time for the brothers and their families to spend together during the time when we normally would not get to see each other.


    Thank you very to Wor. Michael Centola and Bro. Mark Pearrow for all of their hard work on the preparation. And a big thank you to our grill master R.W. Donald LaLiberte for grilling up the burgers and dogs.
