MILLBURN LODGE NO. 127
A.F. & A.M.
Freemasonry is a worldwide fraternal organization. Its members are joined together by shared ideals of morality by which to live out your life as a compassionate man of integrity and honesty, whose meaning is gradually revealed over time, and which uses memorable symbols and imagery.
Freemasonry seeks to attract “just, upright and free men of mature age, sound judgment, and strict morals.” Of these requirements, two are very important, being over the age of 21 and coming from an honest upbringing.
But there is an inescapable third requirement, a belief in a God, the supreme being of the great religions of the world. Freemasonry is open to men of all religious persuasions and races.
We focus on the development of good men who represent and promote a quality life filled with honor, integrity, brotherly love, freedom, equality, tolerance, learning, and service to mankind. Through our timeless Masonic experience, quality men of sound character receive significant value from being a member of our ancient and honorable fraternity.
Lodges are the basic units of Freemasonry and consist of a Master and a range of Officers who carry out the work of the Lodge on behalf of the Brethren. Our lodge holds our monthly business meeting at 7:30 pm on the third Thursday of each month. Dinner and Refreshment are served at 6:30 pm and are open to all Masons and anyone interested in our Lodge.
We also meet at 7:00 pm on the first Thursday of each month. It is usually at the lodge and can also be anywhere the presiding Master of the Lodge wishes it to be.
What is a Boodle Fight?
Boodle Fight is a unique experience inspired by the military-style of eating. It was initially the Filipino soldiers’ communal way of eating. This is a kind of feast that is meant for sharing, sharing all the food but it’s also about companionship and friendship, and valuing the gifts that we have on this earth. Everyone eats together, all from a single ‘plate’ and everyone enjoys themselves, with good food, good drinks, and good company!
Boodle Fight does not mean it’s a food fight unless, of course, you want to go into that kind of level and test your friendship with your friends. However, Boodle Fight is supposed to be a friendly type of feasting and not something you stress on. Take note that Boodle Fight will be filled with many delicious dishes, which means all of these dishes must be finished. So inviting your big eaters’ friends or families would be a perfect choice. This also means that you don’t have to worry about wasting food and having too many leftovers.
This event is open to all Masons and their Families. And let’s not forget, it could very possibly be the best meal you’ll ever have in your lifetime!
