RP Square Club sponsors Halloween Party

The Ridgefield Park Masonic Square Club sponsored a fun-filled Halloween Party this year. Partygoers enjoyed food, fun, drink and dancing and a good laugh at each others expense as they showed off their creative costuming talents.


4th of July Parade features Motorcycles

Mosaic Lodge once again marched in the Ridgefield Park 4th of July Parade with the 3rd Masonic District in 2012. This year, however, featured a new and exciting twist. This year the 3rd District included a Motorcycle contingent that helped rev up the crowd with roaring engines, weaving drills and just an all-around esprit-de-corps.


Masonic Temple Philadelphia


One of the wonders of the Masonic world is the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia located at One North Broad Street, in Philadelphia. Since its dedication in 1873, this architectural jewel has attracted hundreds of thousands of Brethren and visitors to the Mother City of Freemasonry in America. Having taken a trip to this magnificent building, I want to share some of its history with you.



On February 22 and July 1, 1867, the land, measuring 150 feet by 250 feet, was purchased for $158,061.64. The architect employed was Brother James H. Windrim, W.M. of Philadelphia Lodge No. 72. He served as Worshipful Master of the Lodge in 1873, the year of the dedication.

Brother Richard Vaux, R.W. Grand Master, laid the Cornerstone on St. John the Baptist Day, June 24, 1868. Approximately 10,000 Brethren attended the ceremony. The Gavel used on this occasion was the same used by Brother George Washington in laying the Cornerstone of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The Temple cost $1,569,093.00 excluding decorations and furnishings.

Statue of Liberty Facts
It took five years of skillful labor to build the temple and it was dedicated on Friday, September 26, 1873, the eighty-seventh anniversary of the Independence of the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of Pennsylvania.


The magnificent Temple, which is the home of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, is unlike anything in the nation or world. Structural engineers, architects, scholars and artist come away amazed at what their eyes have taken in. The Masonic Temple’s majestic turrets and spires stand out symbolically as they form a part of Philadelphia’s downtown skyline. The massive structure, from its imposing exterior to elaborate interior, has been described as “one of the greatest works of art ever carried on by Masons in any part of the world”.

Brilliant exemplifications of the various orders of architecture are seen in the Temple’s seven Lodge Halls. They are the finest examples of the Corinthian, Ionic, Italian Renaissance, Norman, Gothic, Oriental and Egyptian styles. Egyptian Hall, for example, is called the “only perfect specimen of Egyptian architecture in America”. This room is an exhibit of the greatest wonders left by the ancient builders from the Nile Valley. So perfect are the room’s mystic symbols and designs that scholars come to study them.

Mosaic Friends and Family enjoy the evening celebration
Mosaic Lodge Celebrated its 100th Anniversary with their friends and family on November 11th, 2010.

Although November 4th was a Master Mason only night Mosaic members realized that we had to share this wonderful occasion with those close to us who are not Master Masons.

Members were joined by Ridgefield Park Mayor George Fosdick who is also a Brother of the Lodge, as well as town commissioners, Ladies from the Order of the Eastern Star, Wives, Children, Girlfriends, and prospective members. Music was provided by the Frank Elmo Trio and the food was fabulous. Thanks to all for making it special.
