Shriners at Work

Did you know that to be a Shriner you must be a Mason?

Do you remember the Shriner circus as a kid?

Do you have a family member who received the help they needed from one of the twenty-two Shrine hospitals at no cost to them?

A recent talk show featured Jackie Macri, a music therapist at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Philadelphia.

See the video here: and see Masonry at work.

Swedish Days 2016

On Sunday June 26th, Geneva Masonic Lodge #139 participated in the 2016 Swedish Days Parade. It was a warm and humid and our float blew a tire less than half way thru the parade.

Being men that don't give up, the participating Masons grabbed the American flags that were proudly displayed on the float and along with our banner marched the rest of the way, one of our Brothers calling the time out to March to!

Make sure to look for us next year. We may march instead of ride!
