The Suffolk Masonic District is located in and encompasses all of Suffolk County, New York State’s easternmost county, which is why we often remark that the sun rises first on Masonry in Suffolk District! Located on Long Island, Suffolk County is surrounded on three sides by water, the easternmost part being split into two forks; the north fork, home of most of Long Islands farms and wineries, and the south fork, known for the Hamptons and the Montauk Light House. Being approximately 85 miles long by 20 miles wide, Suffolk County is one of New York State’s larger counties, populated by 1.5 million residents.

Documentary on Robert Burns filmed at Grand Lodge

St. John’s Lodge No. 1 was contacted by Pinstripe Productions, a documentary filming company based in Glasgow, Scotland, regarding the making of a documentary on Robert Burns. They had been commissioned by BBC Scotland to prepare a program for Burns Night next January 25.

Naturally, a number of programs on Burns have come out of Scotland, and in this case the intention was to focus on his influence on the United States, in particular how his poems came to be published over here. However, very soon into the research phase they realized that his membership in Freemasonry had a profound effect on his outlook and his output.
