Who are Blue Lodge Ambassadors?

Blue Lodge Ambassadors (BLA) are Shrine-Masons

who are appointed by their Lodge Master in

consultation with the Lodge Secretary to serve as

he "eyes and ears" for all matters pertaining to

the Shrine within their local lodge.

 

They perform a host of functions within the local

lodge such as presenting a Shrine packet to

newly raised Master Masons and announcing

Shrine dates and events at the lodges

upcoming Stated Communications.

 

Therefore, it is critical that this appointee be an active

 and involved member of his Masonic lodge. The Master,

 Secretary, or appointed brother should contact the

Blue Lodge Ambassadors Program Chairman

to provide complete contact information so the

BLA may be added to the master spreadsheet

for future correspondence.

What is the Sunshine Fund and

How Do We Host A Sunshine Fund event?
