PERRY HALL LODGE NO. 235 - A.F.& A.M.
Who are we?
We are a Masonic Lodge that was chartered by the Grand Lodge of Maryland A.F. & A.M. on May 19, 2012. We began with 22 charter members and have grown to 35 members to date and are continuing to grow. We are a diverse group of men from a variety of occupations, religious affiliations, cultural backgrounds, and races who live in the communities surrounding Perry Hall- Overlea, White Marsh, Parkville, Kingsville, Essex, Bel Air, Baltimore City, etc. We meet for Lodge on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 7:30 pm. Dinner begins at 6:00 pm. We meet in the Fellowship Hall of Perry Hall Presbyterian Church located at 8848 Belair Road.
As a newly formed Lodge, we are beginning to establish our commitment to community service. Freemasonry has a long history of serving the community in various ways. Our first program was to present scholarships to worthy senior high school students. Our first recipients were two sisters from Perry Hall High School. In conjunction with the Masonic Charities of Maryland, Inc. (MCM), we are to provide at least one $500 scholarship to a worthy graduating high school senior to help defray educational costs in college. Our other community-based program will be to provide a Childhood Identification Program (CHIP) whereby we gather various data about a child give that information to the parent. We keep no information about the child! As we increase our membership and receive more information about the area we serve, we plan to do more.
