Centenarian Bro. Maury Feren

 

On September 17, 2015 a number of members met at Lodge to help celebrate and honor our dear friend and Brother Maury Feren. Maury is a 60 year Mason and full of memories and wonderful shared experiences with University Heights Lodge. All present joined in singing happy birthday and sharing in a special birthday cake.

Maury says, "Every day I look for something exciting to happen". For the rest of us, we don't have to look far - we only need to look at Maury, and something exciting will be close by. He is a man of faith and character. He never let his passion and commitment get in the way of what he knew to be really important.

     
  Master and Wardens Dinner Dance

Master and Wardens Dinner Dance held at Nido Italia on June 13th was a very special event. An overall review was so well expressed by one of our members:

"What a lovely affair. A lot of Mason members passed it up because it was different. The entertainment was excellent. A nice patio, lots of camaraderie, and everyone looked happy from what I saw. Better yet, the food was outstanding, lots of it, wonderful tasting. I don't know if it will ever work again, but for this time it was an excellent turn out, even though space was limited on the dance floor, it worked. From my point of view, you made it into a happening. With much respect, Maury Feren."
     
  2015 Memorial Day Parade
The University Heights Memorial Day Parade once again proved to be the quintessential small town parade, drawing a crown to line up along Silsby Road, clap and shriek for the candy. As has become the tradition, University Heights Lodge led off the parade carrying the American Flag on a breezy day. Thanks to all the brethren and thier families that participated.
