way to go Grand Poobah of Brazil!!! You single handedly will make Brazil a destination (and not the Brazil that requires Portugese either).

At least he's trying to update what could be a nice place as opposed to most other's in Brazil that watch their building's deteriorate.

It's nice to see something GOOD about Brazil in the news, instead of robberies and drug busts. Kudos to such an enterprising young man who isn't afraid of hard work and wants to share his passion with others! This story is NEWS...not the regurgitation of tragedy or misconduct!

I wonder what the water usage is for the building?

I bet its some kind of natural gas boiler. That's what most older and larger buildings used. What an expense to provide the basic necessities and maintenance for such a project. It's hard enough keeping a one story home going with the cost of utilities. I hope that all goes well with this endeavor.

I'll bet it'll be a beautiful place. I wish it was on the main street though, it's hidden back there behind the old bank building. I've heard though that he is trying to get the mason's to rent it again. If that is true I wonder if his intentions are to live there after renovations are complete

I woudln't count on the Lodge moving back in. Someone went to a lot of trouble, sadly, to get them to decide to move out of there, and it really is a shame....it wasn't necessary, and shouldn't have happened.

Didn't the lodge move to Knightsville. With the other lodges in the area. It does seem like a shame to leave such a historical building built exclusively for the organization. Maybe they couldn't afford the utilities or routine maintenance. I can only speculate and I don't know any of the inside information that members may know.

It's not that bad. The old embalming table makes a really nice salad bar.

No, they're meeting somewhere else, but I can't remember where. It was a real mess, let's just leave it at that.

Real good buddy organization

Guess the good ole boys could not handle it and had the topix on Masons removed, I guess they have some satanic power..

Any all male organization has a homosexual element

CATHOLIC PRIESTS
ALL-BOYS SCHOOLS
PROFESSIONAL ATHLETICS
FREEMASONS

the balance is thrown off by the lack of female presence
