Ernie Day is a neighborly man who, like many, spends his day dutifully working for his employer, enjoys his family, and participates ehtnusiatically in his community. Several years ago, he followed his father’s footsteps and joined the Masons.

“I joined the Masons 7 years ago because I wanted to give back to my community,” says Day.

Through these years, he’s had loads of fun participating in Lodge events like its food stand during summer events and hosting officials during the annual Honeoye Falls Firemen’s Christmas Parade. But he’s also experienced something more important.

“Over those past 7 years I have found that Masons are more than giving back,” says Day, “but it is also a fraternity of brotherhood that has helped me realize more about myself and helping others.”

As he worked his way up through the leadership chairs, Day continued to learn about himself and develop lifelong friendships. This past September, he chaired his first meeting as Master of Union Star Lodge No. 320, F&AM.

“I am humbled and honored to serve as Master of our Lodge here in Honeoye Falls,” says Day, “and I encourage those interested in joining to contact me.”
