Much thanks to our lodge lovin’ #421 Masons who helped to repaint our lodge room mid-February this year.
During our April 2021 Stated Meeting, a number of these Masons were presented with a special award for their dedication and hard work. The photo accompanying this post, shows a number of these Masons with their award.
421’s current lodge was built in 1956 and no one is exactly sure when the walls were last repainted. It’s definitely been a while, as some of the old blue paint present in the Temple had begun to flake, and discoloration was present in a few spots.
After WM Neil Helwig ordered his Masons “to beautify the lodge”, a dedicated group of 421 Masons then volunteered to do this back-breaking work.
The original paint color name is unknown, however, we can applaud our volunteers for choosing a very appropriate “Celestial Blue” to be the new color.
Now the walls in our beloved Temple look “like new” again.
With more enthusiastic Freemasons joining “#421” – it looks like yet ANOTHER YEAR of continued growth for Carmel Masonic Lodge #421!

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.
