This is the first installment in our new series where we will introduce some of our members. These are the up-and-coming leaders of our Fraternity. These are men from all walks of life. Fathers, sons, husbands… and we all call each other Brothers. These are just some of the stories behind Denver Lodge No.5.
Meet Sean. He is one of our newest Fellowcrafts and a great guy all around. We’ll let him introduce himself in his own words.
I have lived in Colorado since 1998. I am a father of 3. Being a father has proved to be more challenging, rewarding, and enriching than I have ever thought. I love to cook, hike, snowboard, and listen to music. Music is dear me, as is my vinyl collection. From Miles Davis to Jane’s Addiction and everything in-between… Nothing beats it.
Freemasonry and the Brothers of Denver No. 5 have been a wonderful addition to my existence. I look forward to sharing space and breaking bread with these gentlemen on the first and third Thursdays for Lodge and then to congregate outside of Lodge for some great and memorable times! Brothers in every sense of the word. It is a diverse group of guys and a group that you will find it hard not to strike a meaningful conversation with.
Sean has a great future in the Fraternity. Say hi to him at our next meeting.
Greetings from the East,
I’d first like to congratulate Brother Sean Murphy, who we Passed to the Fellowcraft degree at our second stated communication in February. And a job well done by our degree team!
The unseasonably warm weather has invigorated the Brethren and we have a lot of activities planned for March. For our first stated meeting on March 2nd, we will be having a joint communication at Park Hill Lodge #148.(4819 Montview Blvd) This is a great opportunity to visit another Temple building and Lodge that we would otherwise not be able to attend since they meet on the same night as Denver #5.
On Saturday March 4th we will be “freezin’ for a reason“ once again at the Boulder Reservoir Polar Plunge. Even if you are not taking the dip, come out and support. See W.B. Tom Schotts for details.
On Monday March 6th, at 6:30pm we will be visiting Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 F&AM, PHA. (4200 E. Colfax.) If you haven’t had a chance to visit a Prince Hall Lodge, you are missing out! Contact Kory Wilson SW to RSVP
We will be holding a special communication on March 10th to do Master Mason proficiencies and vote on a petition.
We are exciting to be taking part in the annual Denver St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday March 11th. It’s always been a lot of fun to hit the Downtown Denver streets and especially to promote the Fraternity. Details will be out soon.
At our second Stated Communication on March 16th, we will be initiating three candidates into the Fraternity. These are great guys that we have come to know and we are excited to have them join us!
Don’t forget that scholarship applications are out now and can be downloaded on our website. The deadline for applications is April 7th.
See you at Lodge!
Pablo Colomban, W.M.
Denver Lodge No.5 A.F. & A.M.
