The Past Masters portraits resume their place in our Lodge room with Right Worshipful Bill Pierce carefully observing the proceedings of the Lodge from the South East corner - just as he did for 50 straight years.

Join us this Tuesday for our May Stated Communication and check them out.

It's that time again! Time to join us for the best breakfast in town. This Saturday, 8-10AM, at Kempsville Lodge. Bring you friends, family, and most importantly, bring your appetite. There's always plenty of food, fun, and fellowship.

Is it even possible to have too much sausage and bacon at breakfast? I don't think so!
