Welcome to Nellis Lodge
Child ID Program
The Nevada Masonic Child ID Program is run by the Masters and Wardens Association under the guidance of the Grand Lodge of the state of Nevada. Please help, they can always use volunteers.
Nellis Lodge #46 F&AM originally started at Nellis Air Force Base as the Square and Compass Club in April 1954. Brother General James E. Roberts then Commander at the Base was able to make a building available for the meetings. The purpose of the club was to provide a Masonic meeting space for the military personnel to use while away from their respective lodges. For the next few years it was talked about forming a Lodge but since most of the members were only temporarily stationed there it never held ground. In 1962 however it was decided to create a chartered Lodge and also keep the Square and Compass club. Our current member Brother Al Schouten was the Worshipful Master that presided over the first stated meeting on December 13th 1962. Nellis Lodge moved to its new home on Rancho and has been committed to serving our valley’s youth through our Bikes for Books program and assisting with the Child I.D. program.
