Congratulations to Jose Carlo Quemada Nepomuceno, Carmel #421’s “Youngest*” Master Mason!
Thanks to Rick Hurwitz, PM for filling in as first section WM. Additional thanks to our ritual superstars Mike Power, PM; Neil Anger, PM; Brandon Schultz, PM; Jerry Harvey, PM, and Steve Burnstein, PM, for their help performing key second section duties. Much thanks also go to all our other members and guests who helped out. SW Rob Zuniga for his behind-the-scenes work with WM Helwig to oversee lodge operations, and to JW Dan Nealy who prepared a delicious dinner for everyone before the degree (love those optional hot peppers!) And with no surprise after the degree, “further study and reflection” continued at “The Library”.
With more enthusiastic Freemasons joining “#421” – it looks like yet ANOTHER YEAR of continued growth for Carmel Masonic Lodge #421!
Not familiar with Freemasonry? Check out What is Freemasonry? Come and visit us at our lodge before one of our meeting nights (visit Thursday 6pm – 7pm). View our Trestle Board (lodge calendar) for upcoming events.
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.

Hamilton County COVID-19 Update 1-10-2022 Due to the reported high positivity rate of COVID cases within Hamilton County and the unfortunate upgrade of Hamilton County to RED on the Indiana metrics map, our team has decided to postpone all degree work until further...
