Gold Collar Degree team confers MM Degree

GoldCollar
L to R: MW D. A. Dorworth, D. Maguire, C. Kourgelis, R. Koch, WM A. Forste

Mosaic Lodge was honored by the visit of Most Worshipful David Alan Dorworth, Grand Master of Masons for the State of New Jersey 2013-2014 when he recently brought the Gold Collar degree team to confer the 2nd section of the Master Mason degree upon Brothers Cole Kourgelis, Randall Koch, and Dylan Maguire who joined us from Burke Lodge in Bogota. Worshipful Master of Mosaic Lodge Aaron David Forste and his line of Mosaic Lodge officers conferred the 1st section of the degree.

The Gold Collar team consists entirely of members of the Grand Masters Grand Staff. These men are all Grand Lodge of New Jersey officers.

The night also had special meaning for Worshipful Brother George Kourgelis, a Mosaic Lodge Past Master, and Right Worshipful Brother Louis Rizzo, 3rd District Grand Chaplain, and also a Mosaic Lodge Past Master. George and Lou are Cole's father and grandfather respectively.

Thanks also need to go out to all the brothers who worked hard in providing an excellent dinner.

Grand Master attends Table Lodge

Most Worshipful David Alan Dorworth, GM

Mosaic Lodge was honored to welcome Most Worshipful David Alan Dorworth, Grand Master of Masons of the State of New Jersey when he attended a Table Lodge in his honor on October 3rd, 2013.

Mosaic Lodge has hosted every Grand Master, except one, since MW Douglas Policastro attended in 2006, and at each Table Lodge the Grand Master has been presented with a HomeBrew brewed and packaged in his honor. The beer is brewed by the members of Mosaic Lodge and the labeling and packaging is done by the graphics committee of Mosaic Lodge. This year MW Dorworth's design was created by our Senior Deacon Russ Goodman.

A Table Lodge is a regular Masonic communication that features a full dinner where a toast accompanies each course of the dinner. Kudos to Bro Jose Figueroa and Senior Steward Joel Guyre and countless other brothers who provided excellent fare for the evening.

Congratulations cakes for RW Lou Rizzo, GC and RW Walt Kalfers, JGW

Upon returning home after the proceedings of the New Jersey Grand Lodge, Mosaic Lodge had new Grand titles for two of our members: RW Louis Rizzo (left) is now the Grand Chaplain for the 3rd Masonic District and RW Walter Kaulfers (right) has been elected the Junior Grand Warden of the State of New Jersey. They both bring so much honor and respect to Mosaic Lodge and are so worthy of the offices they now hold.

At the first regular communication of Mosaic after returning from Grand Lodge, RW's Lou and Walt were presented with a cake each from the lodge. These men are but two of the several Pillar that Mosaic Lodge is lucky enough to have. They both are very active in our Blue lodge in addition to many other masonic, charitable and social organizations.
