Lodge App Exclusively for Lodge Brethren

The New Marin Masonic Lodge App is an app that you can use on ANY Android or Ios phone or tablet. In order to begin the process of downloading the app, you will first need to type in this link: ourapp.link/marin-191 just as you see it from the device or tablet you wish to download it to. Once you do that, you will be brought to a page that will give you step by step instructions for going forward with the download. The instructions are very clear and easy. The most important thing you will need to do for either system is to go into your security settings and allow "from unknown sources". Make sure that checked and then the app should begin to download.

Lastly, once downloaded, you will open the app and begin creating your simple profile of which will include a picture you will upload and use as well as your name, and email. Thats it! After that, I (Bro. Dominic Tufo) will get an email stating your requesting access and then I will approve you. It is that simple, and then you can begin using the app.

As the current app admin, I will make sure the calendar is up to date as well as noting important lodge events and photos. Soon, payment can be accepted for events and annual dues.

Lodge History Project

Marin Lodge Officers 1984

Brethren, as we have mentioned in our Trestleboard, we invite you to help us with the Lodge History Project. We are currently entering the individual records of our members into an electronic format provided by the Grand Lodge of California. We have entered 900 members thus far. There are others for whom we have only a partial record. Now that the majority of our members have been entered, we would like your help in finding the dates that our members served the Lodge as well recording those who helped serve or volunteered in their community. If you have information about our members from the past, whether about their profession, the branch of service they served in, any interesting stories about them or other organizations to which they belonged, we are always happy to hear more about our membership. Please give us a call or send us an e-mail. Our goal is to enter the contributions and the service of each of our members so that we may have a more complete history of our brethren and our Lodge.We would like to thank those who have already helped us with the original records thus far.

If you are a brother and if you would like to help us with this project, we ask for only one or two hours of your time each month. If you are interested, please contact us at our office at 415-454-4402 or at marinmasoniclodge@comcast.net. Thank you in advance for your assistance. If you have copies of old Trestleboards, installation programs or photographs we would be glad to accept them from you. You will be making the history of our Lodge a richer experience for everyone. If you are a widow of our Lodge and you would like to have a history of your husband's membership in the Lodge, please contact us and we will do the best to provide his history to you. Just contact us at the office number listed above.

We would like to thank the Grand Lodge of California for the material provided above.
