Chicago Lodge #437 of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of
Illinois has been promoting Masonry, or as it also known Freemasonry, in the
Chicago Area since 1865. While it started in Chicago, it now meets in an
adjoining suburb of Chicago. From there it spreads Masonic light throughout
the Chicago area, including nearby suburbs, such as Skokie, Morton Grove,
Niles, Evanston, and Glenview.

Chicago Lodge #437 had a Past Masters and Awards Night on Wednesday,
May 9, at the Skokie Masonic Center. Past Masters were recognized and
longevity pins were presented to members reaching length of membership
plateaus in five year Intervals. Scholarship grants were given to several
graduating Taft H. S. students.

The Daniel Carter Beard Masonic Scouting Award was presented to Brother
Richard Biggio-Gottschlich for leadership roles with the Boys Scouts of
of America.

This type of event emphasizes the social side of Freemasonry in the Chicago area.

Skokie July 4th Parade

The Skokie Masonic Center, including Chicago Lodge, participates in the annual 4th of July
parade in Skokie. We decorate and ride on a float in this parade.
