Langley Masonic Lodge was chartered in 1917, in Langley, WA. Shared a building with the Oddfellows and other organizations until we were able to build a building on land donated by Jacob Anthes (Brother of the lodge, and founder of Langley), in 1949. The lodge sold that building to the City of Langley, where they established a new city hall, in 1993. The lodge built a new building at Bayview Rd. and Grimm Rd. in Bayview opening in the fall of that year. In 2006, owing to declining membership and rising property taxes, the building was sold to Good Cheer to operate as a food bank and operations center.
Since that time, Langley Lodge, has been a lodge without a building, but not without a home. 2 Years were spent at the Senior Center in Bayview, and in 2009, we moved to our current meeting location of Grigware Hall (named for member of the lodge), at Trinity Lutheran Church’s original building along SR 525 in Freeland.
We normally meet for dinner starting at 6:30pm on the 4th Tuesday each month, except for December, followed by our stated meeting in the same space at 7:30pm. Anyone in our community is welcome to join us for dinner, with no obligations, just a request for donation and fellowship. Everyone is equal in our eyes and is deserving of the virtues of Masons: Fidelity, Generosity, and Education.
We work to better ourselves and our community through education support, scholarship, outreach, and community evolvement. Through these effort, we hope to not only stand out as leaders in the community, but help in improving our entire community.
During our current time of crisis, we are meeting online, twice a week, for fellowship and outreach.
