[ARCHIVED] Blue Springs Masonic Lodge #337 to host Cornerstone Ceremony for Public Safety Building

Blue Springs, Mo. – On Saturday, May 2 at 2 p.m., The Grand Lodge of Missouri, Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons with the assistance of Blue Springs Lodge #337 A. F. & A. M. will hold a cornerstone ceremony at the Howard L. Brown Public Safety Building located on 1100 S.W. Smith Street.

This masonic cornerstone ceremony will dedicate the Public Safety building by symbolically laying the cornerstone, representing the support for the entire structure. “The Howard L. Brown Public Safety building has played a significant role by serving those who serve the community,” said Worshipful Master W.B. David Caraballo. “It is a pleasure to take part in a ceremony that recognizes the importance of such a building in Blue Springs.”

The ceremony will consist of three Masonic officers ensuring the cornerstone is square, plumb (straight) and level; the stone is then declared “true” or sound by the Grand Master. This is followed by the consecration of the cornerstone with grain to symbolize prosperity, wine to signify strength and oil representing peace. The ceremony ends with the stone being symbolically tapped into place.

The Public Safety building is part of the third and final phase of the Public Safety Sales Tax Initiative that was passed by Blue Springs residents in 2011. Since that time, a new south radio tower has been completed; new digital radios have been provided to officers, and 17 new positions have been filled within the police department.

For more information about the ceremony, please contact the Blue Springs Lodge #337 of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons at 816-536-6948.
