Welcome to the Evansville Masonic Lodge 64 Website






THE DREAM CENTER
The Mission of The Dream Center is to assist at-risk youth and their families in becoming responsible and self-sufficient members of the community.

Evansville #64 feeds about eighty hungry youths once a month at the Dream Center. These young kids sure are hungry! Many make their way back to the serving line for second and even third helpings.

HELPING YOUR FELLOW MAN: Isn't it amazing how much better we feel about ourselves when we do something for someone in need! How much greater is that feeling when the person you help is a child? And how much more when your efforts keep that child from going to bed hungry? Brothers, we need your help. Not everyone can come to the Dream Center to cook and clean, but almost everyone can do something:

*Maybe you could donate a few dollars each month to help cover the cost of these meals.
*Maybe you can donate some non perishable food items that would help offset our costs.
*Maybe you know someone in business who would like to help us with this worthwhile project.
*Maybe you could make something from your home kitchen. It is up to you.

This community service truly brings honor to our fraternity as well as to each man who calls himself a Mason. As individuals we can do little, but as a group we can do anything. Your help will make a difference! Contact Brother Ken Roy for further information about this vital community project.

INDENTI-KITS
We've all heard warnings that we should keep our little ones safe. But instead of listening to scary stories and getting anxiety attacks, rather take a deep breath, and take the next opportunity to take home a simple identification kit. Brother Joey Weigant (also an officer in the EPD), administers this project and can easily be contacted for further information.



TRICK OR TREAT ON MAIN STREET
Our members have been active in this "growing" event for the last few years. Trick or Treat on Main Street is a great way to acquaint the community with Freemasonry. We want to be out there handing out candy and meeting the parents. Curious dads and granddads often use this chance to speak with us about what it is to be a Mason. Through these casual encounters, potential petitioners have the opportunity to pose questions about our fraternity that they might not otherwise have had.

And hereís where you come into the picture! With the large number of kids on the street, it is often difficult to give a curious person the time needed to speak about our fraternity. So, we need you there! Bring a warm smile and friendly handshake, and if possible, bring along a couple bags of candy!



FUNDRAISERS
We have been working diligently on our fund-raising projects for William A. Reiners, our recently appointed Senior Grand Deacon in the progressive line of our Grand Lodge. We're still selling high quality Masonic logo baseball caps. So please order your hats today and help promote the sale of the caps to other brothers. It has been the custom of the Grand Master's mother lodge, in this case Evansville #64, to fund the Grand Master's Reception. We have answered this call and take our responsibility seriously. Since October 2010, we have been manning concession booths at SMG functions at Roberts Stadium, the Victory Theatre and at The Centre. We are currently checking ID's for events at the new Ford Arena. Won't you join us? Check out the Trestle Board for upcoming events...we hope you plan to help Evansville #64 while helping strengthen brotherly friendship.



SALVATION ARMY BELL RINGING
The "miracle" of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing.The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season. For families in need, donations provide Christmas dinners, clothing and toys. Financial assistance also helps with basic necessities, along with seasonal aid. Families of prisoners often are included. Many families receive aid over a period of months after the Christmas season as well, people struggling with difficult family, emotional or employment problems. Evansville #64 has a proven record of supporting this noble organization and it invites you to join your brothers this Christmas season to continue this proud tradition.




MDA TELETHON & LOCK UP
Local business and community leaders agree to be "arrested" for having a "big heart" in the fun, MDA Lock-Up. This unique community-wide event raises funds for Jerry's kids. Brothers from Evansville #64 have always been there to serve in any capacity needed. We man the phones and help register lock-up participants. This special outreach connects our lodge with over two million volunteers across the nation who are the driving force that enables MDA to accelerate its worldwide research program and provide diagnostic and follow-up care through 220 clinics nationwide. Volunteers are the backbone of the Association's programs, helping with summer camp, support groups, seminars, Telethon, special events and many other programs. MDA special events are a fun way to raise vital funds for the battle against neuromuscular diseases and show that special character of a Freemason!
