Rising Sun Lodge #30
~ Since 1874 ~
In May 1874, twenty two brethren holding membership in thirteen lodges met for the purpose of establishing a new lodge. The name “Rising Sun” was suggested by a founding brother who belonged to Rising Sun Lodge #39 of Nashua, NH. Accepted as an appropriate name, it was presented to the Grand Lodge of RI in its petition for Dispensation. Thus was Rising Sun Lodge #30 born.
In recent years, Rising Sun Lodge has among other charitable activities, supported the Childhood Identification Program (CHIPS), donated to the R.I. Food Bank, awarded scholarships to local graduating high school seniors, and sponsored in-city youth athletic teams.
Rising Sun Lodge meets the Thrid Monday of every month except July and August.
