Woburn Lodge of Freemasons see its new team of officers installed
The Woburn Lodge of Freemasons, Mount Horeb Lodge, A.F. & A.M., held its annual Installation of Officers on Wednesday, Sept. 1.
Being re-installed as Master of the Lodge for a second one-year term was Kevin J. Willis, a former Woburn resident now living in Stoneham. Willis is an attorney in the Boston office of Ropes & Gray LLP, a past chairman of the board of trustees of the Woburn United Methodist Church, and a director of the Woburn Masonic Temple Association.
The Woburn Freemasons are already making plans for a blood drive to benefit Children’s Hospital, and are planning many other events to benefit Woburn and the surrounding communities. The Woburn Masons are also hosting an Open House on Saturday, Oct. 16, at their building on 17 Arlington Road in Woburn.
Freemasonry seeks to bring together men of every country, religion, race, background, age, income, and opinion and develop the bonds of friendship between them. Through a large variety of North American Masonic philanthropies, more than $3 million is given to charity by Masons every day, 70 percent of which benefits the general public. During its initiation ceremony, which uses symbolism and allegory, its members are encouraged to value principles, ethics, and morality and to live their lives accordingly.
Membership in Freemasonry is open to all men, age 18 and over, regardless of race or religion.
