Welcome to the web home of Anchor-Astoria Lodge. Although part of new
York City, our home is in the special community of College Point in
Queens County. Founded by local Masons over 100 years ago, we are still
involved in our community's affairs -- a history we intend to sustain
and build on in the coming year.
One of our major annual events is sponsorship of a Community Dinner at
the First Reformed Church. The congregation has asked local
organizations to host these monthly meals to provide a good meal at the
end of the month for those living on limited incomes, or who don't have
many opportunities to attend meals with other people. We are proud that
Anchor-Astoria Lodge hosted the very first such meal, and is the only
organization that has hosted a meal every year since the program started
over a decade ago.
We also participate in our Grand Lodge program to recognize community
leaders outside of Masonry by presenting the DeWitt Clinton and General
Douglas MacArthur Awards. We have also been sponsoring a drug and
alcohol abuse essay contest in the local schools for many years.
Located in the heart of "downtown" College Point, we are always happy to
welcome visiting brothers from all recognized jurisdictions. You will
find a warm and brotherly greeting waiting for you.
Our Lodge has several meetings a year when we welcome the public to our
meetings; please join us.
Exciting things are happening in our Lodge, with a number of new and
returned brothers eager to work, learn and have fun. We encourage all
our brothers to come out and join us.
As you work your way around this website, you will learn more about
masonry and Anchor-Astoria Lodge. Feel free to contact me or the
Secretary if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoy your visit here, and would be glad to welcome you at
one of our meetings.
