The legwork takes place first....

The Barack Family is hard at work today for a child’s Christmas in December. Last year we formed a giving partnership with “Toys for Tots” and we are back at it for 2019.

A lot of the work that’s not seen is warehouse/storage prep, box drop offs and pickups, database entries for families in need, toy sorting and cataloging, toy drive events, and more. Often this work is accomplished by men and women and service men and women who receive no credit so it’s truly for SERVICE!!! Well that’s the nature of our business we’re in business to be of service. We have some great Barack Elves showing why they are #BarackStrong

We let the NEED steer our direction... wherever it may lead.

Our temple is situated in the Oasis of Hephzibah, Desert of Georgia but Barack Two Five Six is wherever our Nobility resides. Noble Andre Carrington who lives in Aiken Co. South Carolina informed us of a situation where we felt that the Hard Working Nobles of Barack could be of some assistance so on today a small delegation of Nobles was pleased to present Warrenville Elementary with a check to erase the lunch debts of children who deserve to eat a wholesome school meal throughout the day and not go hungry while trying to learn. Further we hope that the assistance can remove a small burden from the parents who may have difficulties with the expenses of raising children today.

You never know where the Green Blazer Nobles may go and show exactly what it means to be #BarackStrong

Our Bold & Beautiful Daughters of Barack Court 233 showed up and showed out to represent for Vice President Kamala Harris in their “Chucks and Pearls”.

Looking great Daughters !

Over a century ago, our ancestors-women fought for OUR right to vote. Today, was pure representation of hope, validation and the shattering of that well-known “glass-ceiling” that has housed mostly men.

Congratulations to Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris! While you prepare to represent us, we are representing you!

Our presence can NEVER be denied!

Until We Grip Again, NOBLE Carl Greene

We love you, forever! BARACK TEMPLE #256

THE OLD MASTER'S WAGES

I met a dear old man today,
Who wore a Masonic pin,
It was old and faded like the man,
It's edges were worn quite thin.

I approached the park bench where he sat,
To give the old brother his due,
I said, "I see you've traveled east,"
He said, "I have, have you."

I said, "I have, and in my day
Before the all seeing sun,
I played in the rubble, with Jubala
Jubalo and Jubalum."

He shouted, "don't laugh at the work my son,
It's good and sweet and true,
And if you've traveled as you said,
You should give these things their due."

The word, the sign the token,
The sweet Masonic prayer,
The vow that all have taken,
Who've climbed the inner stair.

The wages of a Mason,
are never paid in gold,
but the gain comes from contentment,
when you're weak and growing old.

You see, I've carried my obligations,
For almost fifty years,
It has helped me through the hardships
and the failures full of tears.

Now I'm losing my mind and body,
Death is near but I don't despair,
I've lived my life upon the level,
And I'm dying upon the square.

Sometimes the greatest lessons
Are those that are learned anew,
And the old man in the park today
has changed my point of view.

To all Masonic brothers,
The only secret is to care,
May you live your life upon the level,
May you part upon the square.

“Friendship and Service, standing on the shoulders of Giants, service above self equals unselfish living. Many hands create light work, to recieve a blessing one must be a blessing! Unity in teamwork.”

Barack Temple #256 and Stolkin Temple #22 worked together in unity this holiday season, to provide services to our respective community. Assisting with Toy collections, feeding families, and a warehouse inventory for the local Toys For Tots.

Knowing that the leadership and communication between the 2 temples are being established determines that the communities of Augusta and Hephzibah, Georgia will be in great hands for the future!

Great job to the outgoing Potentates, Derrick Wright (256) and Keith Cherry (22) for establishing a foundation for the new Potentates, Johnny Brown (256) and Vincent Robinson (22) to stand on and proceed forward. Working together in unity for the community! It’s the AEAONMS way!
