Freemasonry is the world's oldest largest Fraternity. Its history and tradition date to antiquity. Its singular purpose is to make good men better. Its bonds of friendship, compassion, and brotherly love have survived even the most divisive political, military, and religious conflicts through the centuries. Freemasonry is neither a forum nor a place for worship. Instead, it is a friend of all religions that are based on the belief in one God.
Harmony Lodge, established in 1869 and presently located on E. Beaver St. in Zelienople, has supported the area located between New Castle, Butler and Pittsburgh. Most of its public service projects are related to people rather than things. Since the beginning of Year 2000, the Lodge provided 7 individual financial assistance awards and financed the "train the trainer" part of the D.A.R.E. (Drug Awareness & Resistance Education) program which is carried out in our local schools.
The Annual Ox Roast, held on Labor Day, has become a tradition for the community.
