Chartered in 1856 by the Grand Lodge of New Jersey, the Hightstown Apollo Lodge is one of the few remaining moon lodges. In the early years of Masonry in the USA, moon lodges were many because there was light to travel by when members were meeting at their lodges. At the Hightstown Apollo Lodge we still abide by the old traditions. We meet once a month on Friday evenings at 7:30PM and gather for friendly comraderie each Thursday evening at 7:30PM.
Special Notice The Event Calendar has been updated with tentative meeting dates for 2013. These dates may change without notice.
We're not your typical social club. Freemasonry is not for everyone. If you think you've got what it takes to join us then contact our lodge.Here is how you can become a member. Also take a look at our Year in Review to see what kinds of events took place at our Lodge this year.
The Hightstown-Apollo Lodge has installed its 2014 officers. Included in the group are 4 new Master Masons. Congratulations to all and especially to our newly installed Worshipful Master, Robert Thomas Sullivan.
In an emergent degree on Nov 7, 2013 the Scottish Rite degree team along with selected members of the Hightstown-Apollo Lodge brought three new members into the fraternity. The Hightstown-Apollo Lodge conferred the first section of the Master Mason degree and the Scottish Rite degree team conferred the second section. A meat loaf dinner was provided by the chef of the Hightstown-Apollo Lodge - Mike Tex - and included homeade cheesecakes of various flavors for dessert. It was a night our three newest members will remember for a long time and everyone had a great time. Our thanks go out to the Scottish Rite for their help conferring the Master Mason degree.
Members of Hightstown-Apollo Lodge visited Harmony Lodge #8 in Newton, NJ to present a sign representing a part of the Entered Apprentice Lecture. The cost of the sign was donated by the 2013 officers of the Lodge. From inception to completion the sign was a joint effort. The sign was built using in-house expertise for the cutting of the materials, vinyl applique and commemoration signage, wordsmithing, and a joint effort and collaboration to develop and agree upon the initial gift idea. A twin copy of the sign was also installed in our Lodge to remind us of the time two Lodges worked together for the betterment of both Lodges in fraternal amity. Shown left is Denis de Leon and Robert Sullivan (WM and SW) presenting the gift to Harmony Lodge. Shown right is group photo of all members at the event.
It's almost time for the Hightstown Town-Wide Yard Sale and when it happens the Hightstown-Apollo Lodge is your first stop. We will have vendors selling their crafts and other products along with our large selection of yard sale collectibles.
If you are a vendor or have something to sell (yard sale vendors welcome too!) and you would like to rent table space then please contact us. The cost is more than reasonable and we are at the heart of the town-wide yard sale.
It's Ducky Derby time and ducks and duck sponsorships are up for grabs. Where are those racing ducks now? First sighted at the Hightstown Farmers Market (inset right) the ducks were next sigted at the Cranbury Day Fair (inset left). Where will they be next. Our specialized racing ducks can next be found at the Hightstown Harvest Fair on October 12 which also happens to be the day of the ducky race. Come to Highstown, NJ and watch the ducks race. Sponsor a duck and win valuable prizes too! The sponsors of the first three winning ducks receive a Visa Gift Card worth $500, $100, and $50 depending upon win, show, or place.
Come to the Hightstown Harvest fair and join the fun. It's a crowd favorite and the closer of the Hightstown Harvest Fair. Come and see for yourself and don't forget to sponsor a duck.
