Volunteers Needed!

Brethren,

The Lodge is always engaged in a variety of activities vital to the success of the Lodge every month, such as BINGO, our monthly Lodge Breakfast, and Dinner. Success and our participation at any event run hand in hand. At each of these events, we always can use a “helping hand.” It’s also a great time to come out and partake in some great fellowship with your Brothers, as well as see friendly faces you have not seen in awhile.

If  you would like to volunteer at any of our upcoming events on our Lodge calendar, please send the Worshipful Master or Brother Secretary a message that your interested in helping out, and we will let those running the event know.

Respectfully,

PM Charles Boyer’s 70th Year Service Award Ceremony

PM Boyer – 2016

Recently in late July, Odenton Lodge # 209 celebrated a very special “Masonic Anniversary” by conferring a “70 Year Service Award” upon Past Master Charles Boyer. Grand Inspector James Hill, representing the Grand Lodge of Maryland, and Worshipful Master Cort Bossert led the Lodge and guests in celebrating this special event. PM Boyer served the Lodge as Master back in 1953.

PM Boyer was born Charles Wesley Boyer in 1924 in Severn, MD. He is the youngest of three children. He graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1941, and worked on the family produce farm until 1967. He went into “Home Improvement” afterward, starting his own construction company “Master Craft Inc.” in 1970. His first subdivision, “Peach Orchard” was located in Severn, comprising 105 single family homes. He met his wife, Joan, at an adult group fellowship at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church, and has been happily married for the past 54 years. They have 4 children,  5 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. He has been a member of the Severna Park United Methodist Church since 1972. PM Boyer also served as a “telephone counselor” for the Billy Graham Ministry for 22 years. He enjoys gardening, woodworking, and watching  his favorite baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles.

PM Boyer was introduced to Masonry through his uncle, Charles Fulton. His brother, PM Ridgely Boyer, also served Odenton Lodge # 209 as Master.


John Paul Jones Masonic Memorial Service

The Brothers of Odenton Lodge # 209 joined several hundred Freemasons honored famed naval leader John Paul Jones with a belated memorial service at the Naval Academy.

While it has been 110 years since Jones’ remains were brought to Annapolis from France to rest in a crypt under the academy chapel, Freemasons learned only within the past year that the Revolutionary War hero had never had a memorial service from the oldest fraternal organization in the world. The ceremony featured remarks about Jones, his service and his masonry, as well as a color guard, a hymn and the playing of “Taps.”
