Yearly Visit to Mustard’s Grave

Brothers of Broad Ripple Lodge #643 visiting the gravesite of Bro Jacob Mustard and his wife Casandra.

Thursday evening, many of the brothers made their way to Mustard’s Gravesite on the northeast side of Indy. It was from Bro Mustard’s gift of 30 acres of land to the lodge that Broad Ripple Lodge #643 was able to purchase land in downtown Broad Ripple and build the lodge building that still stands there today. While that building was sold in the ’90s and the members moved about a mile down the road, it is still the generosity of that gift nearly 120 years ago that can be recognized as having a lasting impact on the lodge, it’s members and our future.

Broad Ripple Lodge taught me how quickly men can become close friends, and form lifelong bonds. I feel I’ve known many of my fellow masons for a much longer time than I have actually been involved.

I came to Masonry as a way to meet some new friends. But in a short time, my new Brothers and the Lodge became a very important part of my life. The men I admire the most are my Masonic Brothers.
