For Failing to Prepare, is Preparing to Fail

Brother Benjamin Franklin
Preparedness and survival are not just a fad – they are a mindset from our not so distant past.  All we are doing is trying to make up for the time lost when we started relying on technology and government for our daily needs.  Let’s use today’s technology and blend with the skills of the past to achieve a greater level of preparedness.

Pioneer Lodge & 16th District Calendar
March 01, 2021 - 7:00 PM Pioneer Lodge Zoom Get-Together

     You are cordially and fraternally invited to our Pioneer Lodge Zoom gathering. Due to the strict Massachusetts State limitation of attendees who can be present at events, we will use our regularly scheduled meeting time to gather on-line via Zoom and share stories, catch up, plan for future Pioneer gatherings and generally share some Brotherly time together. 
     Everyone who has a registered email address will get an email invitation to attend. Just click on the link and follow the easy prompts to join the meeting. If you haven’t provided an email address in the past – send it today to No email address – ask a relative or friend to help you out and join with us. Have then send their email address to
     Come and spend an hour or so seeing Brothers that you haven’t seen for some time and enjoy the event. Our last get together in February didn't have a great turnout - let's try harder to take time to gather.

                                  On-line event will start at 7 PM


2020 -2021 Dues

It's that time of year once again.  Please take a few minutes to pay your Pioneer Lodge dues. The cost this year is $151 for a Regular member. You can send a check, bring cash to the meeting or pay via PayPal on the website.
As of today 

The state officials have imposed a restriction on the number of persons that can gather for events and meetings.  We are limited to 10 currently.  So having a Regular Monthly Communication would be difficult and unfair to limit who can attend.
But the important thing to remember is that when at Pioneer - ALWAYS wear your mask, keep your distance as much as possible, wash your hands often (or use hand sanitizer) and always respect others - keeping everyone's safety in mind. 
If you - or anyone who you have come in contact with - has been feeling sick with "cold and flu type symptoms" - stay home and let someone at the Lodge know. 
If you quarantined at home and need anything - please reach out to your Brothers for assistance - you're not alone and we are here to help.
Other than that - just hang in there a little longer and we will be through this and ready to pick up where we left off.
