Anoka Lodge Celebrates 150 Years!

For a century and a half, brotherly love, relief and truth has been brought to the people of Anoka Minnesota by the brothers of Anoka Lodge No. 30. They celebrated this milestone with a table lodge featuring sparkling cider, a dessert plate and many, many members of the fraternal families.

Worshipful Master Wayne LaMusga and his officers (and, no doubt, their wives!) did a great job putting together an interesting and fun afternoon. I learned that the lodge hall, along with much of downtown Anoka, was lost to a fire in the late 1800's. The brothers rebuilt the lodge and it has been a landmark there since.

Congratulations to Anoka Lodge No. 30! Let's go another century or two, OK?
