Woodlin Lodge No 30 (PHA) Re-obligation Rededication Program

Mt Moriah Lodge No 28 Grand Lodge of New Jersey

1st Visit to Woodlin Lodge No 30 (PHA)

On March 5, 2013, Mt. Moriah Lodge No 28 and Woodlin Lodge No 30 (PHA) both of Bordentown New Jersey for the first time sat together in a Tyled Lodge of Master Masons. This was Woodlin’s Annual Re-obligation and Rededication Program as all Prince Hall Masons in the jurisdiction of New Jersey do in the month of March.

The guest speaker for the evening was Most Worshipful John M. Bettis, Past Grand Master, Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of New Jersey.  It is important to note that MW Bettis was the Grand Master as well as MW Larry S. Plasket Past Grand Master of the Ancient and Honorable Society of Free and Accepted Mason for the State of New Jersey who signed the treaty between the two Grand Lodges on September 22, 2002 allowing for visitations between the two bodies.

This was a very memorable night of fellowship, well wishes and Brotherhood! Worshipful Master Sapp of Woodlin and Worshipful Master George Chidley of Mt Moriah were both excited and delighted about the evening.

This excitement was shown by WM Chidley inviting WM Sapp and all of Woodlin who could attend to their annual Masonic Debate versus Burlington Lodge on April 10, 2013.  The invitation was accepted and another wonderful evening of fellowship in sued.  Both Woodlin and Mt. Moriah hope to continue the fraternal fellowship into the future.
