A new fund-raising initiative by the Sussex Lodge of Freemasons is about to kick off. Sussex Lodge members have set up a working group to undertake a trial to determine the viability of a programme designed to raise funds for charitable purposes. The aim of the programme is to have members of the community donate unwanted vehicles to be disposed of either by auction or sold for scrap and the funds raised will be collected and used for charitable purposes. Why do it you may ask? Freemasonry is one of the oldest institutions on the planet having been in existence for more than… read more:

New York/U.S. – Local Masonic Lodge Places Marker Commemorating Lafayette’s Visit to Rahway

When TAPinto Rahway first posted a short piece about a Rahway woman who had died in 1907 and had actually met Marquis de Lafayette, the French hero of the American Revolution, during his farewell visit to America in 1824-1825, we really only hoped to put out a clever little “Rahway in History” article that might generate some interest. That it did, but it ended up producing some welcome unintended consequences as well. We had mentioned in the article that the local Rahway Masonic Lodge No. 27 (which received its charter on November 9, 1824, less than two months after Lafayette’s visit), is actually named for Lafayette, whose full name was Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de La Fayette, in recognition of his visit to Rahway on September 24, 1824. The precise site of his visit was Rahway’s former Peace Tavern, then located near the corner of Main Street and Monroe Street. Following our article, Michael Romano, currently the Worshipful Master of the Rahway Masons (the highest ranking officer elected by the lodge), reached out to… read more:
