ALPHA & OMEGA LODGE # 463
In the beginning Brother Howard Wingfield and Brother
Elliott D. Miles shared the same vision in establishing a lodge built on
brotherly love and friendship. After time, patience, perseverance, and becoming
students of the Craft in October of 2002 a petition was sent to Esau Grand Lodge
of the state of Georgia under the auspices of the National Supreme Council of
the United States A.A.S.R. for the forming of a new lodge. The
lodge to be would be named Hebrews Lodge # 131. The dispensation for Hebrews
Lodge # 131 would be granted and the lodged worked under the direct supervision
and by-laws of the Grand Lodge.
Howard Wingfield became the first Worshipful Master, Elliott
D. Miles as Senior Warden, and Lamar Walker as Junior Warden. Brother Walker
left for unknown reasons and was replaced by Brother Earnest Hunter as Junior
Warden. Soon experiencing tremendous growth and with extreme and precise
planning Brothers Howard Wingfield, Elliott D. Miles, Earnest Hunter, William
Augustin, Travian Mitchell, Alphonso Dunston, James Glenn, Ronald Richards, and
Antron Griffin petitioned Esau Grand Lodge for a charter under the name of Alpha
& Omega Lodge # 463. After a period of the lodge proving themselves worthy
of such an honor the charter was granted on March 7, 2004.
"THE HOUSE MADE WITHOUT HANDS"
Since the Lodge's humble beginnings it has more than doubled
in size, mandated programs and charities have been established, and a sister
chapter Adah Chapter # 1 Order of The Eastern Star was formed. A quarterly
newsletter was created "The Beehive" , yearly participation in the AIDS Walk,
March of Dimes, Clean Your Closet-Clothing Drive, and Breast Cancer Awareness.
Through hard work, dedication, and help from the G.A.O.T.U. the lodge continues
to flourish and each and every member of Alpha and Omega Lodge # 463 now take
part and share in the vision.
FOR THE BROTHERS OF ALPHA & OMEGA THE
JOURNEY NEVER ENDS
