Pagosa Springs Masonic Lodge No. 114 A.F. and A.M. of Colorado will hold an open installation of officers at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12.

The program will be held at the Masonic Temple, 227 Lewis St. and is open to the public. A special invitation is extended to the public and all Masons residing or visiting the area are encouraged to join us for this important occasion.

New officers for Pagosa Lodge No. 114 are Ronnie Maez, worshipful master; Richard Wholf, senior warden; James Hawkins, PM, junior warden; Jon Bower, PM, treasurer; and Dale Schwicker, PM, secretary. Leading the installation ceremony will be Worshipful Brother Brian “Boe” Hawkins, district lecturer and PM, Mancos Lodge No. 100.

Masons are men who profess a faith in God. As men of faith, they use the tools of moral and ethical truths to serve mankind. Their bond to like-minded men in brotherhood transcends all religious, ethnic, social, cultural and educational differences. In fellowship with their brothers, a Mason finds ways to serve his God, his family, his fellow man and his country. Each Mason recognizes his responsibility for justice, truth, charity, enlightenment, freedom, liberty, honesty and integrity in all aspects of human endeavor. A Mason is all of this and more.

Pagosa Springs Masonic Lodge, A.F. and A.M. No. 114 was established in 1902 and will be celebrating its 115th year in the community. Over the years, many prominent members of the community have served the lodge as worshipful master and in other offices.

Modern Freemasonry originated in 1717 in England and 15 American presidents have been Masons, among many other famous men around the world.
