EVENTS

CONSTITUTION OF LODGE, SEPTEMBER 1868

From Moore's Freemason's Monthly, Vol. XXVIII, No. 1, November 1868, Page 8:

This is the name of a new Lodge, which for the past year has been working under a Dispensation at East Hampton, one of the most beautiful and thriving villages on the Connecticut river; and which also has the honor of containing one of the largest, most commodious, and best regulated Classical Seminaries for boys, in this State.

The Lodge was constituted by the M.W. Grand Lodge, on the evening of the 25th of September; at which time its new and convenient Hall was dedicated, and the officers of the Lodge, for the current year, were installed: the latter in the presence of the ladies of the members. On the conclusion of these ceremonies, the company repaired to the new Town Hall, where an excellent banquet was served up for their refreshment.

The exercises of the evening were all well and appropriately performed, and are believed to have left a favorable impression, and perhaps modified the opinions of parties present, who were not supposed to be generally favorable to the Order.

The Lodge is composed of gentlemen, whose social relations are such as can hardly fail to command the respect and confidence that are necessary to insure its permanent prosperity. It has done an unusually large amount of work the past year, but it is believed not to have done any that it will hereafter have occasion to regret having done. The Officers installed are as follows :—

  • La Fayette Clapp, Worshipful Master.
  • William G. Bassett, Senior Warden.
  • Joseph W. Wilson, Junior Warden.
  • Joseph W. Winslow, Treasurer.
  • George S. Clark, Secretary.
  • Fordyce A. Rust, Senior Deacon.
  • George L. Manchester, Junior Deacon.
  • Jasper E. Lambie, Senior Steward.
  • B. W. Hutchinson, Junior Steward.
  • J. D. Campbell, Marshal.
  • Alvah Miller, Chaplain.
  • Emory E. Munyan, Organist.
  • E. T. Sawyer, Inside Sentinel.
  • John Webber, Tyler.

Large delegations were present from the Lodges at Westfield, Springfield, and Northampton. The latter (Jerusalem Lodge) presented the new Lodge with a rich and elegant set of Jewels and Collars, manufactured by Messrs. Guild and Delano, of this city.
