I managed to get ahold of a member of Sunnyside Lodge #163, and it turns out they aren't gone at all. Here is what he had to say:
Our beautiful lodge was sold, and as I've been a member since 1978, it was a second home to me. I was Master of Sunnyside in 1983, and at that time the upkeep was around $15,000 a year. With a declining membership, I guess the majority of the members felt that it was time to sell the building, as it is less expensive to rent. I am going to be Master of Sunnyside again next year, but it won't be the same without our old building. I had many happy memories there, and remember many fine Masons who passed through that building. I hope this information helps.
After checking the lodge's new home page I discovered that they meet at the Washington Masonic Center, another building I talked about yesterday! How's that for an odd coincidence? Hopefully someday Sunnyside #163 will be able to move back into that incredible lodge building. I wish them the best of luck!
These last few days I haven't had many links to share, so I thought I would dig around a bit and find some nice Lodge pages to share. The first belongs to Livingston Lodge #160 in Hammond, Louisiana. It is a nicely designed, concise page with good information. The second is an Australian lodge, Scotia Lodge #263 in Brisbane, Queensland. While it loads a bit slowly from here, I really enjoy the colors and style they used in their design. It has a nice layout with clean graphics and good content. If you would like to see your lodge's homepage mentioned here, please e-mail me and introduce yourself! I enjoy hearing from all Masons all over the world.
