Freemasonry is a worldwide fraternal organization that encourages us to strive to become better men.  We promote personal development by reinforcing moral principles, assist those suffering unfortunate circumstances, and foster friendship and cooperation among all people.

George Washington 1776 Lodge

In 2011, WM Otto Tesch will encourage us to be better men in Masonry.  His goals and objectives include:
  • Strong ritual work, aiming to compete with other lodges
  • Get new members involved in Lodge activities
  • Decouple the George Washington Dinner from the Man of the Year award 
  • Continue Friend's Nights
The George Washington 1776 Lodge is active throughout the North Shore of Milwaukee.  We are a considated lodge of Silver Spring Lodge (Whitefish Bay), the Shorewood Lodge, the Brown Deer Lodge, and Kenwood Lodge (Milwaukee). 
With 160 members, we have a highly popular annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Saturday before Easter for kids on the grounds of our Lodge.  We have an annual dinners called the George Washington Dinner (February) and another dinner called the Ladies of the Table (May).  We have an annual picnic. We enjoy dinner club outings and the George Washington Stein Club. We contribute to charities from the Dyslexia Center to Project A.D.A.M.  In 2008, the Lodge donated sophisticated emergency equipment to the North Shore Fire Department's EMTs worth $6,500.

George Washington 1776 Lodge meets on the first and thrid Tuesdays of each month at 7:30PM in Silver Spring Masonic Center in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin.
