Since 1850, the Masonic Temple at 55 East State Street has been the central hub of York Rite Freemasonry in Bucks County. With over 570 members, Doylestown is one of the largest and most active lodges in the state of Pennsylvania. As the old saying goes: “My boy, if you are not a Doylestown Freemason, you are strictly NOT IN IT.”

There are many sayings that we use daily, perhaps without knowing the meaning or history behind the phrases. Sayings such as “giving them the third degree,” “blackballed,” and to a lesser extent “being hoodwinked” are examples of phrases which we’ve all heard, and are quick to note a Masonic reference behind the saying. I won’t be going into more depth on those sayings because I’d like to propose a new phrase that has been used for a significant length of time, and I would argue has a Masonic origin, “my dog ate my homework.” Continue reading →

London Freemasons have donated £2 million pounds towards the ‘Your London, Your Helicopter’ campaign of London’s Air Ambulance. The aim of the second helicopter is to extend daylight flying hours, thus providing an even more effective emergency service to London. The second helicopter was launched on the 28th January 2016. Graham Hodgkin, CEO of London’s Air Ambulance, said “We are blown away by the generosity of London Freemasons which brings us significantly closer to our aim of having a second emergency medical helicopter up and running by this summer. For many years, London Freemasons have been regular supporters of our work and we thank all those Freemasons across the Metropolitan area who will be working tirelessly to raise the two million pounds.”
The Freemasons’ fund-raising campaign kicked off with the presentation of a cheque for £250,000 at Freemasons’ Hall on Thursday, 5th March 2015 to Neil Jeffers, Chief Pilot of LAA, by the then Metropolitan Grand Master, Russell J. Race, DL. Russell Race commented, “Freemasons both in London and all over the country have been donating to Air Ambulances for many years. We at the Metropolitan Grand Lodge of London are delighted however to have an opportunity to specifically assist in the provision of this vital second helicopter for London.”
This first installment was followed by a further £750,000, which was handed over by Sir Michael Snyder, the new Metropolitan Grand Master, on Thursday 5th November 2015.

The helicopters were deployed to airlift the injured to multiple hospitals.
