Welcome to the Lowther Manor Lodge No. 781 F. & A.M. virtual lodge! The Officers and members of the lodge extend fraternal greetings to all Freemasons and visitors who have come to these portals. All are welcome!
These pages provide information about Lowther Manor Lodge in particular and Freemasonry in general. We have also provided links to the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and other Masonic websites. This is a great place to begin your exploration of Freemasonry.
We aspire to be the Premier Lodge in Central Pennsylvania. Our lodge has developed a reputation over the years for being a friendly lodge. We have also worked very hard to maintain a standard of excellence in the quality of our ritualistic work and in the variety and quality of the fraternal, charitable, and community service programs we support. Come visit us and see for yourself!
DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THE R.W.G.M. HAS PUBLISHED GUIDELINES [SEE W.M.'s LETTER BELOW] ON WHEN LODGE ACTIVITIES MAY RESUME. WE EXPECT TO RETURN TO OUR REGULAR SCHEDULE IN SEPTEMBER, WITH A "NO-CONTACT" CHICKEN BARBECUE DINNER FUND RAISER ON JULY 25TH AND LITTER PICKUP & ANNUAL PICNIC SCHEDULED FOR AUGUST 8th AND 9th RESPECTIVELY.
WorshiPful master's juLY letter
To the Members of Lowther Manor Lodge No. 781:
I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health Brother! I am happy to announce we are now in the GREEN phase and will be moving toward some semblance of normalcy. We will continue to make the health and safety of our members, families, and friends a priority. The RWGM established the following guidelines for opening the lodges/restarting activities:
• Suspension of ALL Masonic events/meetings
• Limited Masonic activity allowed after a 2-week period, NO Stated/Extra Mtgs or Degree work.
• All governmental regulations must be strictly enforced.
• Masonic buildings allowed to open and permitted to host events (ie: blood drives by Red Cross; elections; businesses permitted to be open etc.) providing all governmental restrictions and guidelines are followed.
• Allowed to restart ALL Masonic activities after a 2-week period as long as all governmental regulations (if any are in place) are adhered to.
NOTE, IF AT ANYTIME A COUNTY OR REGION REVERTS BACK TO A PREVIOUS COLOR CONDITION, THEN MASONIC ACTIVITIES WILL FOLLOW SUIT IMMEDIATELYl
York County went to the Green Phase on Friday June 12''', meaning we can resume activities Saturday June 27"'. With that the Lodge will be holding the following upcoming activities: Chicken BBQ Fundraiser on July 25th, Highway Cleanup on August 8th and Lodge Family Picnic on August 9th. Please be on the lookout for event flyers.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to a Lodge Officer or a fellow brother. Please be safe Brother, follow the guidelines to help prevent the further spread of the virus, and I look forward to seeing you very soon.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
Mark E. Gaines, P.M.
