Queens Masonic Association

          The Queens Masonic Association, the charitable organization of the Queens Masonic District was incorporated on February 8, 1928.  The first President was Brother Thomas J. Towers who served from 1924-1925.

          Through the charitable donations made by the Brothers of the District during our Spring and Fall appeal we have been able to help those organizations in need.

          Each year a Brother of the District is awarded the distinguished M\W\Charles W. Froessel Award. The recipient of the award is chosen by the President and approved by the Board for either his work in the QMA, the District, or Masonry in itself. In 1970, Brother William R. Knapp was the first recipient of this award.

          Each year a Testimonial Dinner is held to honor a Brother or Brothers who serve our District along with the Presentation of the  M\W\Stewart C. McCloud Grant Award. However, every other year the outgoing District Deputy Grand Master and Grand Lodge Staff Officer are honored for their two years of service to Grand Lodge and the District.

          Brothers of any Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of any jurisdiction recognized by the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York shall be eligible for membership if they are currently a member of a Queens Lodge.

 

          There are Committees that help the QMA operate properly. The Standing Committees of the Association are Activities; Projects; Social Welfare; Blood Donor Program; Audit; Budget; Nominating; and Scholarship.
