Stated Meetings of Seattle Freemasons
The stated meetings of Seattle Freemasons at Queen Anne Lodge are at 7:30 on the 2nd Thursday of every month, except for July and August.
Our stated meetings are required in the by-laws of both Queen Anne Lodge, and the Grand Lodge of Washington. While the dinners, which are held at 6:30 prior to the meeting are open to any guests, especially anyone interested in joining Seattle Freemasonry, the meetings themselves are closed to all non-masons. If you are a visiting Freemason from outside our district, you must prove suitable proficiency to verify that you are a Freemason, as well as be carrying your dues card from your home lodge.
The purpose of the stated meetings is a combination of ritual, business, education, and fellowship. It is only during a stated meeting that simple operations can be attended to such as the paying of the bills and reading of communication from Grand Lodge. This is so that such things may democratically be made reliably transparent to all Master Masons, creating no division or inner circles with regard to the management of the fraternity.
Ritual is also a necessary part of the stated meetings as they serve to regularly remind a Freemasons present about their purpose as men and as Masons, as well as their individual duties as officers.
The members of Queen Anne Lodge, also endeavor to include a moment of education, to better enlighten its members on the history of our order, its secrets and mysteries, as well as the seven liberal arts which we forcefully recommend all Freemasons submit themselves as students to, which are: Grammar, Rhetoric, Logic, Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, Astronomy.
Our Stated Meetings are Held every second Thursday of the Month.
Dinner is at 6:15
Meeting starts at 7:30

Lodge stated Dinners are a great time for us to get to know each other as Freemasons. We are also open for visitors who areinterested in masonry to join us for these dinners before we go to our lodge room for our meetings.
