HOME LODGE No 721 F. & A.M.

Home Lodge originally started as the Home Masonic Club, and in 1952, members petitioned the Grand Lodge of California for a charter to operate as a Masonic Lodge. In 1953, they received the charter, and the club officially became Home Lodge No. 721, Free & Accepted Masons. Home Lodge members built the original lodge on Lankershim Blvd in North Hollywood. In the early 1990s, the building was sold, and since then, Home Lodge has met in the Van Nuys Masonic Center.

WHAT IS FREEMASONRY?

Freemasonry is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious fraternity globally. We are like a civic club, a charitable institution, and a fraternity – all rolled into one.

We’re like a civic club in that we do a large number of community and statewide projects. We’re like a charity in that we support many worthwhile causes. But mainly, we are a fraternity of men doing good things for each and bringing men of good morals and ethics together in our community.

What is the Mission of Freemasonry?

To promote a way of life that binds like-minded men in a worldwide brotherhood that transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social, and educational differences. To teach the great principles of brotherly and love, relief truth. And to give an outward expression of these things through fellowship, compassion, and concern, finding ways to serve God, family, country, neighbors, and self.

What Do Masons Do?

The most important thing we do is take care of each other and our families. We are a fraternity. That means we help other Masons, treat them in special ways, support them no matter where they live, and build friendships worldwide. Not very many organizations do that today. And we help others. We give almost $2 million a day to charity, and most of our money goes to help kids. We rank among the top 10 best-liked charitable groups in America. Yet we also teach leadership skills and help men lead an ethics-based life. We promote good relationships and strong family values. We try to do something to strengthen the family unit every day.

What do you get out of it?

A significant amount of pride. A sense of belonging to an organization that exists worldwide and being part of a great heritage, and sharing an identity with the great men of the past – and of today. Sharing a special bond with men from all walks of life and creating life-long friendships with them. Being a member of an organization that believes in toleration lets each man think for himself and express his own opinions without worrying about being wrong.

MASONIC ARTICLES

Masonic Home From Home

W Bro Korosh Namini

A short while ago, we published an article where Lodge of Harmony, No. 255 welcomed W Bro Michael David, a visitor from Home Lodge 721 in the Grand Lodge of California, in the United States of America. Since then, the Worshipful Master, W Bro Korosh Namini, returned to California and gives this brief summary of his visit to Home Lodge 721 in the latter part of June.

Freemasonry and the Mexican War of Independence

Prepared by Wor. Eduardo Estrada, P.M.

Throughout my life I have heard many of my fellow Americans confuse and intermingle the historical facts associated with the celebrations of Mexican Independence from Spain and the celebration known to us as Cinco de Mayo.

Cuban Lodges

A Visit by George Thelwell

R.W. Bro. William Bain and I travelled to Varadero Cuba from January 10, 2008 to January 20,2008. I had only ever taken the escorted bus tours. This time we rented a car and did some exploring. We stayed at the Corallio Resort about halfway along the peninsula.

PAST MASTER'S CORNER

Dodger Game on Bucket List

By Donald Pollock, P.M.

Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth still prevail at Home Lodge # 721, big time.Let me tell you a true story of a recent occurrence right here in our Lodge.We have an elderly Brother (just 87 years old} who had on his “Bucket” list a final trip to a game at Dodger Stadium. He is obviously a huge Dodger fan.However, reality, his doctors, family and his body, especially since a near fatal auto accident last June suggested that the fulfillment of that dream was very doubtful.

Oh Say Can You See

By Donald Pollock, P.M.

“Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, what so proudly we hail at the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thro’ the perilous fight, O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof thru the night that our flag was still there. O’ say doth that star spangled banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”

Cardinal Virtues

By Stepan Varsam, P.M.

If you had three wishes, what would you wish for? Most people would want to: 1. Live Forever, 2. Win the lottery, or 3. Have peace on earth. Living forever, although it seems immortal, is one of the most mortal parts of mankind’s abilities. We all live forever, for as long as you live that is forever. When your body expires your spirit lives on and people who know you will remember you, and that remembrance will keep you living forever.
