Areas and Districts have been reassigned starting with the 2019-2020 Masonic year.

The administrative boundaries and designations for our Areas and Districts have been redefined. Reasons for change in the Area and District assignments are:

  • To balance Areas in an attempt to have four Districts per Area. (Exceptions are Area 1 which has three and Area 4 with has five; mainly due to driving distance in Area 1.)
  • To balance Districts with five Lodges per District.
  • To minimize driving distances in the Areas and District. (Driving distance were minimized using Google Maps to determine those distances.)
  • To attempt to keep Area distances under 200 miles and District Distance under 50 miles. (Some exceptions do exist.)

New Interactive Lodge Locator

As many of us travel around the state, whether for business or pleasure, it is always a good idea to visit Lodges in the areas of our travels. It is now even easier to find Lodges anywhere in the state. The new Lodge Locator found on the Locate a Lodge page under the Contact Us tab of the Grand lodge Website is just the ticket. Simply enter your search criteria and find the Lodges near you. Meeting and contact information is provided for those Lodges that meet your criteria.

The interactive Lodge List formerly found on the Locate a Lodge page is now on the Listing of Lodges page also under the Contact Us tab.

Home is just a handshake away. Happy travels Brothers.


Kansas Masons Award 345 Scholarships Statewide

Scholarships Total Nearly $350,000

 

Our Local Lodges in conjunction with Our Kansas Masonic Foundation, the charitable arm for the Grand Lodge of Kansas, announces the award of 345 scholarships to Kansas students. The awards total nearly $350,000.

 

The scholarships, which range from $500 to $5,000, are awarded to graduating high school seniors and students already attending four- and two-year universities and colleges, including vocational and technical colleges, throughout the state.

 

“It is with great pride that we, as Masons, are able to provide this type of financial support to our future leaders,” said Michael J. Tavares, President of the Kansas Masonic Foundation. “Our commitment to the scholarship program – and to the numerous other programs that benefit Kansans and Kansas communities through the Foundation and the Masonic Lodges throughout the state – is at the core of our belief that charity beyond ourselves strengthens our community.”

 

Over the 50 years of its existence, the Foundation, along with the Grand Lodge of Kansas, its 230 statewide lodges, and almost 18,000 Kansas Masons, have given thousands of scholarships and millions of dollars to deserving students in Kansas.

 

“Whether it is this scholarship program, the almost $25 million that Kansas Masons have donated to the University of Kansas Cancer Center, the $20 million that was recently committed as part of the Foundation’s 50th Anniversary, or any of the other worthwhile endeavors to help others that Masons are committed to do, our Fraternity provides significant charitable support to Kansas and throughout the world,” said Lyn E. Beyer, Grand Master of Masons in Kansas. Beyer also noted that more than $360 million has been raised annually by the American Masonic philanthropy alone.

 

The 345 scholarships will be presented to students by their local Masonic Lodge in April and May.


Kansas Freemason Plate

The Kansas Freemason Plates have hit the roads and are quickly becoming the distinctive tag of a Mason.

The Kansas Freemason Plate is an official license plate, the proceeds of which help support our Grand Lodge library and Kansas Masonic charities. The Kansas Freemason Plate is available at your county treasurer’s office. The cost of the plate is $25 plus your standard fees and taxes. The additional $25 is forwarded to the Grand Lodge of Kansas for distribution in our non-profit funds.

Brothers,

I hope you give considerable thought to attending our 160th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Kansas.

Online registration is not open yet, but will be on January 1st 2016.

There are some very exciting things planned and we hope you will join us for the Rededication of the cornerstone of our State Capitol Building, and to see the St. Johns Bible from New York (very historic), Brother Robert Dole is planning to attend as well.  We are estimating this to be the largest Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Kansas since the mid 70’s.
