Peoria Lodge 31 Free & Accepted Masons in Arizona
Peoria Lodge No. 31 was chartered in 1922 through dispensation of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons in Arizona. Over the years the Lodge has remained constant in its location in downtown Peoria, but has grown and adapted to changing times. Today Peoria Lodge No. 31 consists of over 200 brethren in Arizona and across the world. The Lodge works hard to maintain the traditions and ancient knowledge of those that have gone before, so as to pass it on to the next generation of Freemasons who will in time themselves take the reigns of the fraternity.
Please, join us for our Stated Meeting Tuesday May 4th at 7pm, Dinner at 6pm Pizza and Wings. Please Click the link below to RSVP.

The Bridge Builder
BY WILL ALLEN DROMGOOLE
An old man going a lone highway,
Came, at the evening cold and gray,
To a chasm vast and deep and wide.
Through which was flowing a sullen tide
The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
The sullen stream had no fear for him;
But he turned when safe on the other side
And built a bridge to span the tide.
“Old man,” said a fellow pilgrim near,
“You are wasting your strength with building here;
Your journey will end with the ending day,
You never again will pass this way;
You’ve crossed the chasm, deep and wide,
Why build this bridge at evening tide?”
The builder lifted his old gray head;
“Good friend, in the path I have come,” he said,
“There followed after me to-day
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been as naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be;
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building this bridge for him!”
