Dear Brethren, With 2018 well underway, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued commitment to Freemasonry and for your support of Hialeah-Opa-Locka Lodge No. 391. I would also like to introduce a new quarterly newsletter that will be used to keep brothers up to speed with what is happening at our lodge and what we plan for the future. 2017 was a year to remember. Our lodge initiated two new members last year, Brothers David Cardona and Ruben Ovalle. Both brothers passed proficiency in their Entered Apprentice Catechisms and were passed to the Degree of Fellowcraft in October, before being raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason in December.
HOL 391 was well represented at the 188th Grand Communication of the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Florida, in 2017 too. The event was held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, FL and allowed the brothers who attended to engage in some brotherly bonding with our families at Disney World.
Our lodge even threw a first of its kind event when we hosted our first annual "Open House". Our goal was to present the craft to any men who were interested in Freemasonry and bond together as a lodge in doing so.
Our installation of the 2018 Officers was held on December 30, 2017. The main dining hall was decorated like never before, for the event, and over 50 people attended the installation in support of our lodge.
