From the East

Welcome to our website.

I am looking forward to a great year for John W. Durst Lodge No. 716, our officers and members.  We achieved so much last year under the leadership of W.B. John Milo and I have vowed to continue the forward momentum of our Lodge this year.

Last year, we received the Grand Master Award for the first time in our 79-year history.  Our membership takes great pride in that fact and I have charged them with helping us to repeat it. 

I am also very proud of the fact that our progressive line is free of Past Masters occupying the chairs.  Our newer members have really stepped up seeking a pathway on their journeys in our great fraternity.

We have several events being planned for the coming year, they will be posted soon in our calendar.

I invite all Masons to come and join us in our meeting and events.

Fraternally & Sincerely,

Lee Edwards

Worshipful Master
