Connecticut's Newest Lodge: Quinta Essentia Lodge U.D.

Congratulations to the brethren of Connecticut's newest Masonic lodge! On April 4th at its annual communication, the Grand Lodge of Connecticut AF&AM granted a dispensation form Quinta Essentia Lodge U.D., a "European Concept" lodge.

The lodge will be limited in membership size to just 35, and will meet six times a year. Meetings and festive boards will be held in private dining rooms of restaurants, not lodge rooms, and each gathering will have a cocktail hour and dinner, with either a presentation or an open discussion topic. Masonic introductions will be kept to a minimum. The lodge will have a dress code, requiring either a tuxedo or dark suit, and lodge dues will be higher than most blue lodges in the state. And officers will not necessarily progress through the line.

Congratulations to R:.W:. Brother Brandley K. Cooney, Quinta Essentia's first Worshipful Master, and to all of the charter members of the lodge.

For more information, contact the lodge Secretary, W:.B:. Charles Tirrell.

  1. I just want to point out that RWB Charles is the author of Masonic Renaissance , and has worked *very* hard to help get the GL of Conn to be more proactive in using electronic media to reach a wider range of Masons.
