2017 Annual Suffolk District Dinner

2017 Annual Suffolk District Dinner

2017 Annual Suffolk District Dinner   This past April 2st was the Annual Suffolk District Dinner at Polish Hall in Riverhead. For those brothers who could not make it, you missed another fantastic event.

Masonic Research - online vs offline

Masonic Research - online vs offline

Masonic Research - online vs offline Many Brothers from around the district do some pretty in depth research on Freemasonry and many of its aspects, both exoteric and esoteric. So where is a Mason to find this information, at least reliably. Of course many of our older Brothers would say without hesitation, "read a/the book". Some of the newer members …

Meet the District Website's Other Members

Meet the District Website's Other Members Another area of the Suffolkmasons.com website that is very beneficial to the District is the Site Members area and their related sections. We'll quickly explore these below. Frankly there is much more than can be easily put into one Post, so this will be as brief as possible on each topic. As you may …

Suffolk District Photo & Video Gallery

If you haven't checked in on the Photo gallery of the Suffolkmasons.com website please have a look and check out the images there. There is also now a Video Gallery with more videos to be added soon.

I know this sounds like we're tooting our own horn but we're fairly proud of this "technological terror we've constructed" and appreciate the feedback we get from members who have had a look and told us what they thought of it. Even the constructive criticism is quite welcome and often heeded.

The reason this piece is occupying the "In the Spotlight" section is I was hoping to have a collaborated piece ready with another organization I thought should be spotlighted but alas, We could not get it done before the April 25th deadline or the May 1st release date. I hope to have it in neon lights right here in the June 2017 edition.

Also the Webmasters are going to be updating the Gallery with not only still images of events and members from around the district, but moving pictures..and talkies at that. It's all uber technical and all but yes we're adding a video gallery in the near future and I think the members around the district will be pleased with the content. 

So please do click on the Subject title and have a look at the pics there. We'll remind all that we would earnestly like the help of the brothers around the district to submit images for inclusion to posts or in the gallery. So if you have a set of pictures you'd like posted in the gallery, please let us know and we'll arrange to get them from you with the details of what they are of and get them posted.
