The Story of Tranquility Lodge No. 2000

On July 20, 1969, two American Astronauts landed on the moon of the planet Earth, in an area known as Mare Tranquilitatis , or "Sea of Tranquility". One of those brave men was Brother Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin, Jr., a member of Clear Lake Lodge No. 1417, AF&AM, Seabrook, Texas. Brother Aldrin carried with him SPECIAL DEPUTATION of then Grand Master J.

the largest Moon rock in our Apollo Lunar Collection at NASA's Johnson Space Center is Apollo sample 61016, also known as “Big Muley”? It is the largest single rock returned by the Apollo astronauts and nearly the size of a football!


Happy Lunar New Year from Orion! ✨🐇

Lunar New Year begins on the first new Moon of the lunar calendar. This picture shows off our closest lunar neighbor on flight day 21 of NASA’s Artemis I mission. Orion’s optical navigation camera looked back at the Moon as the spacecraft continued its journey home.


The following message is brought to you by our Merchandise Committee Chairman!


Many of you know me as the Brother who handles theTL2K Merchandise, but I'm also a member of the GLoT Merchandise Committee. I was recently asked by a Brother, if I would have TL2K Aprons at this coming Annual Grand Communication in Waco. Considering our present climate rising costs from the USPS, I agreed to bring the Aprons to Grand Lodge.

During Grand Lodge the Merchandise tables are located on the Basement level. I will not have any TL2K Merchandise on the tables, but I will have it in our stockroom. Just ask for me and we'll go and get what you want.

If you're interested, I strongly urge you to make a purchase you can hand-carry. The cost of postage is going to rise in Jan/Feb of 2023. At our next Stated meeting I'm forced to ask the Lodge for an increase in S&H pricing, in the form of a motion. By making a purchase at the above time, will save you $15 then or a possible $20 later.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Robert D. Riley, PM - TL2K Merchandise Chairman


Merry Christmas!


Friday Fellowship before tomorrow's Stated Communication!

118 years ago, 1903, the Wright Brothers – two patriotic trailblazers – gave America her wings. Just like – 66 years later – the Wright Brothers showed the world that we can defy great odds and achieve anything we put our minds to.


Happy Thanksgiving, Brethren!


To all the Veterans of this great Nation, THANK YOU for your service!
