1946 to 1971 (cont)

The summer season got off to a bang when Fidelity Lodge participated in Ridgewood's 4th of July parade. This was not the first time the Lodge had participated, but rather marked the beginning of our annual attendance. Later in July a Beef Steak Picnic was held at the home of Bro. Gordon Greene for all members and their male friends. The "Greene Acres Picnic", as it is now called, has also become an annual event and it is now held early in September.

In 1968 Fidelity Lodge held its first "Table Lodge". The Master, W.Bro. Roy S. Hansen, invited Rt. Wor. Bro. Kjell Peterson, Past Grand Representative to the Grand Lodge of Sweden near the Grand Lodge of the State of New York, to be our guest for the occasion. Rt. Wor. Bro. Peterson gave a very interesting and enlightening explanation on how Masonry is practiced in Sweden.

This same year, our Brother, Worshipful Brother Robert L. Olson, was elected to the office of Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge of the State of New York.

Fidelity Lodge was recipient of a "Traveling Gavel" which began its journey several years prior in Tuscan Lodge No. 138 in British Columbia, Canada. It had many temporary homes throughout the western states of our country, in the four lodges of the York Grand Lodge of Mexico F. & A.M. and in New York State, before Scarsdale Lodge No. 1094 F.& A.M. New York presented it to us. The Gavel circulated among the several lodges of the Second Masonic District before a delegation from Fidelity Lodge traveled to Pennsylvania where it was presented to Dallas Lodge No. 396, Easton, PA, in November 1968.

Several interesting evenings were afforded the Brethren: the first "Fun Night" which was attended by all the bodies of Masonry that meet in the Temple; the play "A Rose on the Altar" was presented by the Corona Players; and Brother Oswal Dieter gave an enjoyable illustrated lecture on his safari to the interior of Africa.
