welcome TO LOWTHER MANOR LODGE
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 of interest. 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!
The February Extra Meeting
Degree Work ~ The snow stayed away and the power stayed on as Brother Jeffrey Painter (above center) was made Lowther Manor Lodge's newest Master Mason, pictured with his father-in law Bro. Ronald McKnight and the Lodge officers. Brothers Gregory Perez (L) and Jack Mentzer (R) received their Fellowcraft degrees the same night. Following the meeting all enjoyed Lodge birthday cake (February 8th, 1957), ice cream, and Masonic fellowship. Many thanks to the brothers who manned the sidelines!
This extra meeting was our only February meeting. The Worshipful Master's record of cancelled February meetings remains unbroken due to snow emergencies, and this years stated meeting had to be cancelled due to a power outage brought about by a heavy wet snow. But fear not, the scheduled presentation of 25 Year Awards and our Masonic "I Should Have Known That" competition have been rescheduled for May.

Not That Long Ago - A Milestone
Following the acquisition of what was once a Jehovah's Witnesses meeting Hall the lodge members and contractors began the hard work of transforming the building from its original purpose to become a new type of temple. Construction took place throughout 2018 and the building's transformation into a Masonic Temple was completed in 2019. In October of 2019 the lodge was ceremoniously dedicated by the Grand Lodge. Please accept our Masonic invitation to the brethren to come and visit often.
