Thank you to brothers Steve Johnson; Joe Sosa; Buck Owens and Brandon Hagaman, who went to Lodge last night to prepare the building before the hurricane.
At this time most forecasts are predicting Hurricane Ian to pass close enough to cause major issues, including flooding, with potential for evacuations. for our area.
Ensuring the safety of all of our families is our top priority, and so I’m POSTPONING our Oktoberfest fundraiser until October 13th (6:30 – 8:30 PM).
Stay safe, and please reach out to any member of the Lodge if you are in need of assistance.
Steve Johnson, Worshipful Master
Gulf Beach Lodge adopts a classroom
Gulf Beach Masonic Lodge, recently took part in the Pinellas County Adopt a Teacher/Class program by adopting Ms. Heather McShane at Starkey Elementary School. For a donation of $150.00 an individual or business can adopt a classroom or teacher which will assist them in procuring educational items for their students. Gulf Beach Masonic Lodge encourages individuals, organizations and businesses to consider taking part in this worthy program and help our public school teachers accomplish their goals. Nestled in a quiet Seminole neighborhood, Starkey Elementary has been a fixture of the community since 1960. Over the past several decades, they have created many special traditions while embracing innovative learning opportunities. They have a reputation for strong partnerships with families and community members. They are focused on academic achievement and character development in a safe environment. Proud home of the Starkey Bears, their mascot represents strength, determination and confidence. They serve about 700 students from PreK through grade 5. Their students and staff are dedicated to the S.T.A.R. expectations of Safety, Teamwork, Attitude, and Responsibility.
