• Moosup Lodge hosts the Masonic contingent in the Moosup VJ Day Parade — one of the last remaining Victory over Japan Day celebration in the United States. Moosup Lodge or a member of its Masonic contingent has garnered the parade marshals’ Outstanding Fraternal Order award for many years.

 

 

Buses depart from the Lodge’s front door to the parade step-off site until 12:00 noon. The parade steps off promptly at 1:01 PM, marking the exact moment of the Japanese surrender, and terminates directly in front of Moosup Lodge, where marchers from the Blue Lodges and appendant bodies converge to enjoy a buffet meal.
