Happy Fall everyone! Pioneer is waking up after a long hot summer. We have our Annual Communication and Official Visit by the DDGM coming up October 1. Come to Lodge and show your support. It would also be the perfect time to pay you dues since Oct. 1st is the dead-line. Also in October we will be welcoming in the new Officers of Pioneer Lodge at the semi -public Installation on October 27 at 3 PM - followed by sharing a meal at 4:30. Reservations for this event must be made for planning purposes. Go to the "Dinner" page to make reservations. Another great event will be the Pioneer Square & Compasses Day, which will be held on October 13th from 9 AM - 2 PM. Know anyone that would fit in at Pioneer? Extend and invitation.

The WM has already gotten some volunteers to step forward to help at our local food pantry - but that doesn't mean you can't help with other projects. Contact the Worshipful Master and discuss the possibilities of volunteerism!
Pioneer Lodge will be volunteering at the Annelle Delorme-Hagerman Food Pantry from 9 AM - 11 AM. Please arrive at 8:45 for brief instructions. The pantry is located in the small white house next to the Church of Our Saviour at 2112 County St. Somerset, MA. Breakfast is available at 8 AM if you would like to eat.
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. It was a great evening that all will remember. After a great meal and many toasts, I read a poem which I had written with my feelings of the night. Please enjoy.
A decision made in haste or after much consideration.
The outcome was the same, why did I have to choose.
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.
Actions, right or wrong, had become who I am now and shaped who I will be forever.
So how to choose a path – imagine beyond the horizon – hope for the best?
The toss of a coin would serve me best – but no coin had I and no desire to leave my fate to the toss.
I thought – I’m never right – and I never desired what was left.
So a distorted logic gave me my final direction.
Ahead it shall be – ever moving forward – through time and space – ahead in direction and the universe.
Lantern held high and steadfast into my future.
