150th Lodge Re-dedication & Anniversary Celebration 11/13/2021
Carmel Lodge #421’s “150th Lodge Re-dedication & Anniversary Celebration” was held on Saturday, November 13, 2021. 421 Lodge officers and members, members of Indiana’s Grand Lodge, and a representative from Carmel City government attended the extra-special event.
All in attendance heard from 421’s current leadership with the message: “Now with 150 years on record, Carmel #421 continues each year to grow in size and spirit – serving Masons and Masonry, the community, and the greater good.” After the re-dedication, a dinner was held for members and their spouses downstairs, with each attendee given a special commemorative coin highlighting their attendance at the event.
A world of thanks goes out to all the 421 brethren who help prepare the lodge, event, and dinner for this special afternoon and evening. Special thanks to WM Neil Helwig for his guidance, SW Rob Zuniga for his incredible work orchestrating the months-long preparation, and to all the other 421 brothers who helped to paint, clean, organize and beautify the lodge into the appearance that was worthy of such a great afternoon and evening.
By attending Masonic Lodge meetings and learning from your fellow Masons, you’ll strengthen the bonds of fellowship as you join together with like-minded men who share ideals of both a moral and metaphysical nature. There are Masonic lodges on every continent on Earth, and in almost every nation. You’ll enjoy the friendship of other Masons in the community, and you’ll be welcomed as a “Brother” by Masons everywhere in the world. Freemasonry also promises that should you ever be overtaken by misfortune, sickness, or adversity through no fault of your own, the hands of our great fraternity will be stretched forth to aid and assist you.

421 has a reputation as an open, welcoming Masonic lodge. We continue to attract both new members and transfers. Many lodge members, who haven’t been regularly attending lodge, find the friendly and active atmosphere at “421” results in a desire to attend more often, get more involved in degree work, or simply come out and join us at the next fun social. Over the last few years, communication with our members has been greatly improved due to continual improvements with lodge membership services, website, email, and social media outreach operations.
The continued success of our vibrant and active Job’s Daughters (female teens) – the year ahead will again be a “beehive” of positive activities at Carmel 421 – benefiting both its members and the community.
Despite the current challenges with COVID and what obstacles may lie ahead, our lodge is committed to persevering and taking each day one day at a time. On a positive note, we have the year planned out and encourage anyone who has time, to view the Trestleboard for upcoming events.
