The Brothers of Clifford Alford Lodge #165


Clifford Alford Lodge #165 received its name from one of the great pioneers of IFAMM & OES, the Illustrious Clifford Alford.  The Lodge received its charter in 1976 and has been in continuous operation for 42 Years.  During our 42 years of operations, Clifford Alford Lodge #165 has initiated more the 175 good men. 


Ever so often a group of men are assembled to advance the causes of a people.  This is one those rare cases and WE are the BROTHERS OF CLIFFORD ALFORD LODGE #165.  Our primal mission is to restore the image and practice of FREEMASONRY to its operative mode.  WE will balance the practices of the OPERATIVE and the SPECULATIVE modes to build enduring civilizations. WE constantly strive to “MAKE GOOD MEN BETTER,” by serving as positive beacons of light.   WE will make men in our image,  in our likeness for we are made in  the image of GOD.  WE will restore the Freemasonic image of SERVICE for “He to whom much is given, of him is much required” and “He who is greatest among you will be your servant.”  WE will unite all of our efforts with a profound display of HUMILITY. “Great is he who lowers himself to lift his brother!”  When pupils  are  ready  history  ensures  that  MASTERS  appear,  WE  ARE  HERE!
