Continued Improvements To Our Backyard

Mosaic's new Patio, Fence and Greenery; May 2013
The Backyard at Mosaic Lodge has come a long way in the last few years. It seems with the annual Pig Roast/ Tiki Party (this will be the third year), boccie ball matches all summer and the Brothers choosing to spend more outdoor time at the lodge the yard was slowly becoming more pleasant.
 
Gone are the days of the mud lot where Jim Hamilton would park his RV because the space wasn't being used. Every since WB Lou Zwernemann's son Eric built the eastern retaining wall as an Eagle Scout project the major improvements keep coming. Last year the blocks were purchased to do the western retaining wall (pictured) but not installed. It took Bro. Jose Figueroa and Bro, Aaron Forste three months to remove the six trees that had grown up and destroyed the old wall. Last summer (2012) the backyard received the most use it has in many years with parties and regular hangouts back there.

This year already, the members of Mosaic, strongly motivated by Bro. Steven Fernandez who has lead and done a huge amount of work, have installed the western wall, built a comfortable patio, planted beautiful new grass, painted and restored the back of our neighbors garage, installed a new fence on the west and planted some shrubs. The neighbor on our east put in a new fence that we matched on the other side. Bro. Albert Stabile III seeing the beauty and draw of the patio and backyard area purchased and donated a Chiminea which has already received much use on chilly evenings. 
 
The backyard is only one further example of the amazing works we have done at Mosaic Lodge. When we pull together and accomplish these improvements and repairs to our beloved building it strengthens our bond as Brothers in Mosaic Lodge and as Masons. A majority of this work is done by the Brothers and only when absolutely necessary do we hire a professional to guide us in the work. So great is Mosaic Pride.
