In 1923, a group of bright, determined and like-minded individuals set out to establish Richard E. Moore Lodge #109 under the umbrella of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the State of Illinois. Their courage to start a new chapter speaks volumes about who they were, and we’re honored to follow in their footsteps.
Our Fraternity represents a group of diverse people who always strive for the highest level of excellence, as our founders intended. Shared goals and interests in areas of service, academics and building solid relationships hold our chapter together and define who are we.
Over the years, our Lodge has grown and become one of the premire Lodges of this Grand Lodge. Many of our members have advanced in several areas of the Fraternity, as well as in society, bringing honor and pride to our Order. Our goal is to continue to grow and provide the basic tenets of Freemasonry to all who we come in conact with.
Those tenets are: Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth
