Greetings Brothers and Guests!   Welcome to Carmel, Maine. We are an active Lodge with 121 members. Our date of Precedence as a Lodge was March 12, 1857.  Our Charter was granted by the Grand Lodge of Maine on April 7, 1857.  We are in our 160th year of community service. Our Stated Meeting is the third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 PM.  We are dark July and August. Please check our Trestle-Board below for many upcoming Lodge events!
