Ionic #31 Railroad Degree - held on Sat May 20, 2017



The 3rd Annual Ionic #31 Railroad Degree (via the Wilmington & Western Railroad) was held on April 14, 2018. This event has proven to be a HUGE success. For those who have not attended, special attention has been given to creating a mobile lodge room with railroad-themed accents: authentic lanterns were used by the Altar; special door knockers were created; even the Gavels were specially made for the occasion by welding railroad spikes together, each being rapped on an engraved section of steel rail. Many of the Officers (dressed in engineer bib overalls) wear wireless microphones so that they can be heard by everyone. The mobile, open Lodge Room situated between the railroad tracks and the banks of the Red Clay Creek is an absolutely stunning setting for a degree.


It has been a rain or shine event, and this year we were again blessed with outstanding weather. Delicious BBQ and fixings was served at the station before boarding the train. We had over 150 Masons from 6 states in attendance. So MANY people are involved behind the scenes to make it a success and their efforts are GREATLY appreciated.
