From the East

My Esteemed Brethren of Boca Delray Lodge No. 171,

As we embrace the vibrant month of May, a time when the promise of summer begins to bloom, I am thrilled to share some exciting developments within our Lodge. This period of growth and opportunity reflects our collective efforts and the strength of our fraternal bonds.

A highlight of this past month was securing a long-term rental agreement with Weight Watchers. This partnership promises to bring significant funds to our Lodge, bolstering our ability to support our Masonic activities and community engagements. I extend my heartfelt thanks to W∴ Ferrari for his dedication and hard work in facilitating this valuable contract. His efforts exemplify the spirit of leadership and commitment that drives our Lodge forward.

Looking ahead, I want to remind everyone of the Grand Lodge of Florida Annual Communication, taking place at the end of May at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando. This gathering is a cornerstone of our Masonic year, offering a platform for fellowship, learning, and celebration of our craft. I still have a few room reservations available until May 18th. If you are interested in attending, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

On our first meeting on May 2nd, we will receive the Official visit for the second time from our DDGM R∴ W∴ Gerald Strohacker and his team. We will have a Fellow Craft Degree on the second meeting, May 16, 2024.

As we continue our journey together, let us reaffirm our commitment to the principles of Freemasonry—Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. These guiding lights not only shape our personal growth but also strengthen the bonds we share as brothers.

Let us stride into the future with a renewed sense of purpose, cherishing each moment of connection and support we offer one another. May this month be filled with memorable interactions, profound insights, and the joyous embrace of brotherhood that defines us.

Fraternally and sincerely,

Rafael Nioac de Salles

From the West

Greetings from the West Bretheren!

I would like to thank you brethren for the fellowship maintained within this lodge. I'm looking forward to meeting with you all this Spring season.

A bit of Masonic education, I encourage my Brothers to read or re-read our Masonic Etiquette (click here GL208). Sharing the item about Apron:


Is an emblem of innocence, it should be clean and white in color. It is also the badge of a Mason and should be worn with pride and honor to the fraternity. Officers should wear the apron assigned to the office they were installed into for that year. Past Masters should wear their Past Masters Apron which can be any design except Gold accents should never be used except for Grand Lodge Aprons. The apron is to be worn under the coat unless you are wearing a double-breasted coat or an overcoat."

I wish you all a fabulous May and hope to see all of you in the Lodge

Fraternally and with warm regards,

Nick Richard Senior Warden

From the South

Greetings from the South Brethren!

Brethren, I hope this message finds you well. I ask that we all say a prayer for all those who serve this great nation of ours, military and first responders. A prayer should also be said for those involved in The Israeli–Palestinian conflict. We should pray for a quick resolution so these two nations can begin to rebuild.

In my year as J.W. I focused on providing a quality dinner for our Brothers. I believe the meals are above everyone’s expectations and I will continue this trend which started before me. I have a great team and I’m lucky to have them.

We are always running a food drive for Boca Helping Hands so don’t forget to bring in those nonperishable foods for this wonderful charity. Some of the items you can donate are cereal and cereal bars, juice (powder drinks), sauces, canned fruit, canned vegetables, pasta, beans, rice, etc.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Lodge.

From the Secretary

Fraternal Greetings Brothers.  

I hope that you are enjoying the beautiful springtime weather.

Lodge dues statements were mailed out mid-October 2023. If you have not remitted your 2023 dues as of yet, kindly do so and avoid being send late notices.

At the end of May our three senior officers will be attending Grand Lodge in Orlando. This is an exciting time, especially for first time attendees. More Masons gathered in one place than ever seen before and the opportunity to interact, learn and make new acquaintances.

Our officers will be voting on a few proposals as opposed to previous years where many were discussed and voted on. As Masons were refer to the Digest of Masonic Law frequently as this book has been a work in progress since the founding of the Grand Lodge of Florida. We reference the Digest when it comes to petitions, funerals, officer requirement and an innumerable array of other topics. Our membership helped formulate its contents and attending Grand Lodge to vote is how this process is achieved.

Thanks to W:. Ferrari, he engaged Weight Watchers to sign a long-term rental agreement which encompasses several days rentals per-week at a sum that assures the lodge a financial income. These funds can be used for lodge maintenance, capital repairs, setting up scholarships or for financial security. For years now we have been renting the collation room to the County Board of Elections so that residents in the immediate area have the opportunity of casting their ballot. This rental is more of an opportunity for the lodge to giving back to the community as the rental fee covers utilities and janitorial cleaning.

At our last communication, we had the pleasure and honor of having two distinguished Masons visit us from Columbus lodge No. 1660, Montego Bay, Jamaica. We had the good fortune of seeing how Right Worshipfuls and Worshipful Masters in this Jurisdictions attire themselves and their manner of addressing the lodge. This was a good learning experience for our newer Masons to partake in and hopefully there will be future visits from our Jamaican Brothers.

Brethren an addendum on Masonic Education

“The Worshipful Master and His Privileges”

The incumbent of the Oriental Chair has powers peculiar to his station; powers far greater than those of the President of a society or the Chairman of a meeting of any kind. President and Chairman are elected by the body over which they preside, and may be removed by that body. A Master is elected by his lodge, but cannot be removed by it; only by the Grand Master or Grand Lodge. The presiding officer is bound by the rules of order adopted by the body and by its by-laws. A lodge cannot pass by-laws to alter, amend or curtail the powers of a Master. Its by-laws are subject to approval by the proper Grand Lodge Committee or by the Grand Master; seldom are any approved which infringe upon his ancient prerogatives and powers.

The Master may congregate his lodge when he pleases, and for what purpose he wishes, provided it does not interfere with the laws of the Grand Lodge. For instance, he may assemble his lodge at a Special Communication to confer degrees, at his pleasure; but he must not, in so doing, contravene that requirement of the Grand Lodge which calls for proper notice to the brethren, nor may a Master confer a degree in less than the statutory time following a preceding degree without a dispensation from the Grand Master. The Master has the right of presiding over and controlling his lodge, and only the Grand Master or his Deputy may suspend him. He may put any brother in the East to preside or to confer a degree; he may then resume the gavel at his pleasure –even in the middle of a sentence if he wants to! But even when he has delegated authority temporarily the Master is not relieved from responsibility for what occurs in his lodge. It is the Master’s right to control lodge business and work. It is in a very real sense his lodge. He decides all points of order and no appeal from his decision may be taken to the lodge. He can initiate and terminate debate at his pleasure, he can second any motion, propose any motion. He is responsible only to the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge, the obligations he assumed when he was installed, his conscience and his God.

A very important power of a Master is that of appointing committees. No lodge may appoint a committee. The lodge may Pass. a resolution that a committee be appointed, but the selection of that committee is an inherent right of the Master. He is, ex officio, a member of all committees he appoints. The reason is obvious; he is responsible for the conduct of his lodge to the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge.

A Master cannot accept a petition or confer a degree without the consent of the lodge. It is for the lodge, not the Master, to say from what men it will receive an application, upon what candidates’ degrees shall be conferred. The Master has the same power to reject with the black ball that is possessed by any member, but no power whatever to accept any candidate against the will of the lodge. A Master cannot suspend the by-laws. He must not permit the lodge to suspend the by-law. A Worshipful Master cannot resign. Vacancies occur in the East through death, suspension by a Grand Master, expulsion from the Fraternity.

Briefly, then, if he keeps within the laws, resolutions and edicts of his Grand Lodge on the one hand, and the Landmarks, Old Charges, Constitutions and “ancient usages and customs” on the other, the power of the Worshipful Master is that of an absolute monarch. His responsibilities and his, duties are those of an apostle of Light!

Excerpts from the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana – with much appreciation and gratitude.


Chaplain's Corner

Greetings Brethren!


Be the life of your Lodge!

Freemasonry needs you!

Reach out and bring your Brother back! As Freemasons we grow together!

As Brothers we love our Fraternity but sometimes life takes us away from the things we enjoy. Don't let this happen to you! Brothers, your Lodges need you now as they always have....actually more than ever before. Don't assume that they will always be there waiting for your return. A Lodge is not just a building but the assemblage of good and upright men who gather there. Never assume that you don't have anything to offer. Your presence and ideas could be the difference between a Lodge closing/merging and thriving in our community. Every single Brother is an asset to their Lodge. We need experienced Masons and Past Masters to help teach the influx of new men coming into the Fraternity. We need your passion and desire to help to ensure our Lodges grow and continue to do what they've always done to support the communities in which we operate.

What do you say Brothers? You knocked and it was opened to you.... now you need to be open to Freemasonry. So Mote It Be.

Greetings my brethren.
