Lawrenceville, GA - In the true spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy, members of Truth and Union Lodge and Truth #594 and Union Chapter #590 actively participated in the MLK Parade and Celebration in Gwinnett County, an event organized by the United Ebony Society. By turning the MLK Day holiday into a "day on" rather than a day off, they exemplified the essence of community service and unity.
The parade, a highlight of the community's annual celebrations, saw enthusiastic participation from the Masonic bodies. Their involvement ranged from marching in the parade to engaging in various volunteer activities throughout the day.
The United Ebony Society, which has been instrumental in fostering cultural awareness and unity in Gwinnett County, praised the Masonic bodies for their active involvement. Zachary Pratt, President of the United Ebony Society, said "I want to also thank those who were able to come out and assist in the United Ebony Society Parade, ceremony and program. All three were a success and Truth and Union as always plays a major part."
As the day concluded, the impact of their service was evident in the smiles and appreciation of the community members. The Truth and Union Lodge and Chapter's involvement in the MLK Parade and Celebration not only honored an important figure in history but also reinforced their commitment to building a stronger, more united community.
Riverdale, GA - Members of Truth and Union Lodge #594 and Truth and Union Chapter #590, in a heartwarming display of community spirit, extended their generosity through a significant donation of coats and other cold-weather essentials on Saturday, January 13, 2024. The charitable event was organized by Atlanta Masonic District #3 West and saw the participation of numerous members from the local PHA Masonic community.
The donated items, which included a variety of coats, gloves, hats, and scarves, were collected to support individuals and families in need during the harsh winter months. The event was held in a local community center and witnessed a large turnout from members of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of GA.
The event not only provided much-needed winter wear but also fostered a sense of unity and compassion within the community, embodying the true spirit of the Masonic fraternity's commitment to benevolence and brotherly love.
Truth and Union Lodge #594 had a full day of honoring our Past Masters. The evening of Saturday September 23, 2017, the day that we had our PM Appreciation Breakfast, we had a lodge "kick back" at the home of Tiffany Abrams. She is the wife of our departed Past Master Derrick Abrams.
Tiffany, along with the wives & the brothers of Truth & Union Lodge 594. enjoyed some dancing, serious card playing, serious pool playing, serious cigar smoking, and yes. for the Nobles in the lodge, some serious camel walking was going on..
Most of all, some serious fellowshipping. A wonderful time was had by all and we all had nothing but compliments to Tiffany for her hospitality and attention to detail.
