Montgomery Lodge Becomes BSA Charter Organization
  

Montgomery Lodge – On the 19th of December, 2018, Montgomery Lodge officially became the Charter Organization for Scouts BSA Troop 314 in Milford, MA. This marks the first time a Boy Scouts of America Troop is officially chartered by a Masonic Lodge under jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts, strengthening the relationship between the organizations. “I see several similarities between Scouting and Freemasonry,” said Vin Catrambone of Milford, presiding Master of Montgomery Lodge. “This relationship can provide a great deal of education for both organizations, while benefiting Milford with a strong eye towards service” continued Catrambone.  Paul Callahan of Milford, Scoutmaster for Troop 314, stated “We would like to thank The Milford Performing Arts Center for supporting the creation of the Troop, and getting us to where we are today. As the Troop has grown, the Masonic Lodge became a more beneficial partnership in delivering the Scouting program. To have the Troop associated with such a strong part of Milford's History and Future is quite an honor. We look forward to working alongside Montgomery Lodge." The Troop has been meeting at the Lodge located at 155 Main St., Milford, for some months, and has adapted well to its new 'home'.

Milford Troop 314 was founded on the 1st of March 2014 by Paul Callahan and Jim LaPrad, in what is now the Mayflower Council for Scouts BSA. They meet every Wednesday at Montgomery Lodge, 155 Main St. Milford, at 7 PM. 

Montgomery Lodge is one of the country͛s oldest Masonic Lodges, chartered by Most Worshipful Paul Revere in 1797, with a prestigious membership including local names of Thayer, Eastman, Claflin, Draper, and Stacey. They meet at 155 Main Street, Milford, MA, on the first Thursday of each month.
