Greetings Brothers and Guests!   Welcome to Carmel, Maine. We are a very active Lodge with 142 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 157th 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!
