Report | Soccer Outing - Detroit City FC


The Detroit City Football Club trounced the Fort Pitt FC “Regiment” on July 11th by a 3-1 score. This was due in no small part to the fan support of the Northern Guard Supporters and the AAF262 Brothers in attendance! A good time was had by all and many thanks go out to PM Brian Cors for organizing the event. Go Detroit - Go Le Rouge!

Master’s Letter | July 2014 - Independence Day!


It’s July 4th: families gather, grills are fired up, the weather is beautiful and we celebrate the birth of our nation.  It is a special day for me.  I like to pause and think about this Union of ours.  Remembering how unique it is - our great experiment in democracy.  It is an extra special year for me as it marks the 50th anniversary of Freedom Summer, a seminal moment in the course of the Civil Rights Movement.  We are all truly blessed.  Work for democracy and justice; guard our freedoms well.  The next time you are at the ball park and the anthem is sung.  take off your hat, cover your heart and sing.  Sing it loud!

Masonry celebrated the day through it’s fantastic appearance in the annual Ann Arbor 4th of July Parade.  Represented were Ann Arbor-Fraternity Lodge #262, St Mary’s Lodge #4, Golden Rule Lodge #159Phoenix Lodge #13, Myrtle Lodge #89Zal Gaz Grotto and one Shriner.

Today, Brotherly love prevailed, we are cemented together by every moral and social virtue!

Enjoy the pictures below, taken during today’s parade.  I am so proud and happy to be with each and every one of these Brothers.

GOOD TIMES ALERT: Annual 262 Masonic Family Picnic July 27!

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Bob Hospadaruk
Worshipful Master
