Welcome to Acalanes Fellowship Lodge #480,
Free & Accepted Masons of the State of California.
Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternity, built on a 300+ year tradition of improving ourselves and our communities, and ultimately making good men better. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the constitution of OUR lodge, located in the heart of Lafayette, CA.
Visitors to our lodge have given us the apt nickname of “The Friendly Lodge” and there’s a reason for that. We pride ourselves on being welcoming and open to all men, regardless of social status, race, religion, political leanings or family composition. All that is required to join us is that a man be of strong moral background and express a belief in a Supreme Being.
Our members come from Lafayette and the surrounding area, including Moraga, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Concord, Pleasant Hill, Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Dublin, and several other East Bay cities.
I welcome you to our website – and invite you to visit us in person to learn more about Freemasonry and our lodge. We meet the first Tuesday of each month in the evenings, and invite interested men to join us starting at 5:30 for a reception, tour and dinner, and an opportunity to meet some of the remarkable men that compose our lodge. If you are interested in visiting, simply let me know by contacting me at (925) 284-7815, option 5, so we can ensure we have an accurate headcount. You will be glad you did!
