Freemasonry is a fraternal organization dedicated to making good men better. It is founded upon the principles of brotherly love, relief, and truth. Lodges in Ohio are governed by the Grand Lodge of F&AM of Ohio located in Springfield, Ohio, on the grounds of the Springfield Masonic Community (Ohio Masonic Home). St. Andrew's Lodge No. 619 is one of four lodges located in Springfield, Ohio and has nearly 400 members. For more information on Freemasonry, click the Grand Lodge link in the preceding sentence.
Our stated meetings are held at 7:30pm on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month (except July and August) on the third floor of the Springfield Masonic Temple. We are an extremely active lodge with many events throughout the year.
In addition to our stated meetings and frequent degree work, other events include:
- Formal Installation of Officers
- Annual Strawberry Festival
- Annual Past Master Roast
- Chili and Oyster Stew Dinner
- Annual Table Lodge
- Annual participation in the Ohio Special Olympics opening ceremonies
Our charitable activities include financial support of numerous local charities and the Grand Lodge's Charities, which provides monetary relief to needy Masons and Non-Masons. Our members are also strong supporters of the Springfield Masonic Temple Preservation Fund, Ohio Masonic Home, and the Ohio Special Olympics. Many of our members are also very active in the community and their church, giving freely of their time and talents.
