Around The District

SMAPLE TEXT: On behalf of District Deputy Grand Master R:.W:. Lester B. Stockwell, welcome to the Broome-Chenango Masonic District. Currently, there are 11 Lodges and over 900 members within our jurisdiction with more joining all the time!

Freemasonry is the oldest fraternal organization in the world. Counting among its past and current members are presidents, entertainers, writers, philosophers, astronauts and scholars. Originating from the craft guilds of medieval Europe, our present form of Masonry formally began in 1717 when four Lodges in London combined to form the Grand Lodge of England. Having received our charter in 1781 from the Duke of Atholl, Freemasonry has been active in New York State for over 230 years.

The fraternity’s core beliefs are truth, charity, love of country and of course, Brotherly love and relief. With the help of our Brothers we take good men and make them better by building on these core beliefs. Freemasons live these principles on a daily basis and strive to show others through our actions what a group of people united by common beliefs can achieve.

Around The State

     The trustees of the Masonic Hall and Asylum Fund were created by an act of the New York State Legislature in April of 1864. With that decree, this group was entrusted with the maintenance and protection of certain assets of the New York State Masonic Fraternity. It was empowered to build and maintain the Masonic Hall on West 23rd Street in New York City and out of the income derived from those buildings, operate a home for the relief, support and care of worthy Masons, their wives, widows and orphans.

     Today, the Trustees maintain the operation of the Masonic Care Community, a multi-level senior health care campus complete with an independent retirement community and child care center that serves both employees and the general community. The Trustees oversee the operation of Round Lake Camp in Northern Oneida County, which hosts the Camp Turk Summer program for children ages 8 to 16 and maintain the DeWint House, George Washington’s Headquarters and Historic Site in Tappan New York. They also administer the operation of the Grand Lodge Building of the New York State Masonic Fraternity located on West 23rd Street in New York City.

     The current Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York is M:.W:. William Sardone. Our State Administrative Offices are located at the Grand Lodge of the State of New York; 71 West 23rd St., New York, N.Y.
