On April 02 Pioneer Lodge welcomed Andrew DaSilva, Shaun Schwarzenbach and Michael Pereira as new Master Masons. Following the degree, the Brothers gathered in Pioneer Hall for our Festive Board.

I was there – alone at the crossroads – no
one in sight.
Ahead was the same as to the left or right
– nothing but an infinite universe.
My past was over – never to return but yet
never to leave me.

am now and shaped who I will be forever.
So how to choose a path – imagine beyond
the horizon – hope for the best?

So a distorted logic gave me my final
Ahead it shall be – ever moving forward –
through time and space – ahead in direction and the universe.
