2A Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Quincy's Masonic lodge receives historic designation Debra Moore Staff writer The Masonic lodge in Quincy will be the first in California to be deemed a historic lodge. Local members are taking advantage of legislation created in 2012 by the Grand Lodge of California to help lodges survive. "It's a pretty big deal," said Dick JoUey, who will be the master of the Plumas Historic Lodge. "We've already had inquiries from Chico and Redding from Masons who want to become members." Individuals who are already Masons in other lodges may join the new Plumas Historic Lodge, but the lodge cannot accept new members who aren't already Masons. "This new form of lodge is different in that it no longer takes in new members," Jolley said. "Its main purpose is to preserve and maintain the historic building and encourage its use by other Masonic related groups as well as being available for public use. " If Quincy area residents wish to become Masons, they may join either the Greenville or Beckwourth lodges and then become a member of the historic lodge. The Quincy Masonic Lodge was built in 1855, but it has become increasingly difficult for its members to maintain it. Jolley explained that over the past several years many of the older Masonic lodges in the state have closed. "When membership dropped to the point that a lodge had to consolidate with another lodge, the lodge that was left behind was sold. As a result, many of the historic buildings were lost." Since the Historic Lodge will now be collecting annual dues from members across the state, Jolley is confident that the lodge will be financially stable. He also wants the public to be aware that the f'lrst floor, which includes a large room and kitchen, is available to rent for events. On Monday, Nov. 10, the Quincy lodge, located on Harbison Street, will be designated as the state's first historic lodge in a ceremony set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Grand officers from throughout the state will be participating. The public is invited. The Iasons, which number 6 million worldwide, are known for their philanthropy. To become aMason, one must be of good moral character and profess a belief in a superior being. A prospective member must apply and then be voted upon by the lodge's membership. There has been a steady decline in membership in the United States. In 1959 there were 4 million members and today there are approximately 1.3 million members. Quincy has about 45 members. Their meetings are held the second Monday of the month. For more information about the Masons, the Nov. 10 ceremony, or facility rental, contact Dick Jolley at 283-1492. Back 40 to play Thursday night The Back 40 is set to appear in concert at Quincy's West End Theatre on Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10; they are on sale at Carey Candy Co., Epilog Books and online at The Back 40 is an alternative country and rock band from Quincy. Its current repertoire includes country-influenced music of all kinds with an emphasis on songs with funny and intelligent lyrics. The band covers some classic country tunes, alternative country artists and swampy rock material, and can go from a sensitive and seri6us tone to wide-open irreverence. Topped off with a growing number of original pieces, the music is energetic, fun and danceable, and appeals to audiences of all ages, say concert organizers. The Back 40 consists of local musicians who are good friends and rooted in Plumas County: guitarist Gordon Wilson, vocalist Michelle Anderson, bassist Chris Retallack and drummer Tommy Miles. "Their enjoyment and appreciation of the music, of each other and of the audience is obvious and infectious," say organizers, "and the crowd gets to ride the wave of energy and fun that the band members experience every time they get together to play. Proudly devoid of commercial Nashville twang, the group has found a loyal local audience." Folks are encouraged to stroll on down to the West End Theatre after the Art Walk this Friday and enjoy the concert. COME JOIN US FOR PRAYER!
