Hello Oasis Lodge #52 Family and Friends, far and near! We are coming into a very wonderful time of year and I hope you will make some time in this busy season to spend time with your family and friends, including your Masonic family here at Oasis #52. Reach out and call or visit a Brother and his family, to let them know you are thinking of them. This is the season of rebirth and renewal and it is a wonderful time to renew old and treasured friendships.
We have a lot going on at our Lodge; we are bringing new men into our fraternity, affiliating new Brothers, and advancing Brothers to new degrees. We will be participating in a George Washington Master Mason degree, and we are planning a very busy program for our Lodge this year. We are hoping the pandemic is in our rear-view mirror and we will once again be able to enjoy each others company in our community. We are planning a re-focus on the Lodge of Excellence program that was so beneficial to our Lodge some years ago. I look forward to your participation in these many activities, and we can't make these happen without you helping us! Please come out to join us on Tuesday nights, and please don't forget our Stated Meetings are every 2nd Tuesday of the month. We have dinner every Stated meeting and we are hoping to have a snack or a small meal on the other Tuesdays.
We need and want you to join us whenever you can. If you need a ride to Lodge, let one of your Brothers know and we will make sure you get here and you get home at the end of the evening. Please just let us know!! Please, Brothers, reach out and check on a Brother. He wants to hear from you! We want to hear from you as well.
If you are just surfing around the Internet and you have found us, Welcome! Take a look around our site and if there is anything that interests you, please reach out and say hello. We love to hear from Good Men and their Families. Please come by and join us on one of our Tuesday evenings. One and All, you are always welcome to stop by and say hello.
Our Masonic Family and I wish the Happiest of Holidays and a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours. Enjoy this season and spend it with family and friends. Use this time to reconnect, renew and rejoice.

What is Freemasonry?
In short, Freemasonry is the oldest and largest world wide fraternity dedicated to the Brotherhood of
Man under the Fatherhood of a Supreme Being. Although of a religious nature, Freemasonry is not a religion.
It urges its members, however, to be faithful and devoted to their own religious beliefs.
As a fraternity, Freemasonry provides an opportunity for men to meet and enjoy friendly companionship.
In the spirit of helpfulness and brotherly love and guided by strict moral principles it encourages
goodwill toward all mankind. Freemasonry is of a personal nature in its private ceremonies. Its ritual
dramatizes a philosophy of life based on morality. It promotes self improvement. The tools of operative
masons are used to symbolize and teach the basic principles of brotherly love, charity, and truth which
Masons are encouraged to practice in their daily lives. Charity is a tangible way in which Masons help
those whose circumstances in life fairly warrant it.
