Michael P. Tremblay
Let me introduce myself as your new Junior Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge of Maine. R.W. Michael Tremblay. I was born and brought up in Biddeford the son and grandson of operative masons. I remember helping my dad mix cement and carry bricks on his weekend jobs. Did I mention that I live on Mason Street in Biddeford. I attended local schools and graduate from SMCC and began a 42 year career as a police officer for the City of Saco, Maine. I retired in 2015 but continued my other avocation as a firefighter for the Saco Fire Dept. I am presently Captain Staff Aide and help with accountability and resources at fire incidents. During my career I was awarded 3 Life Saving Medals for my actions in saving others and have twice been awarded a Paul Harris Fellow by the Biddeford & Saco Rotary Club. Did I mention that I own a fire truck? Yes a 1924 American LaFrance that I have owned since 1988. I belong to several truck clubs and historical societies, I am presently President of the Maine Chapter for the Society for the Preservation of Antique Fire Apparatus in America. I am also chairman of the Saco Main Street Car Show and co-chair of the Saco Festival of Lights Parade. Involvement is a cornerstone of my life and my Masonic journey started in 1982 as I was raised a Mater Mason at Dunlap Lodge #47, I also became a Scottish Rite Mason in 1983 and also joined Kora Shrine in that year. I demitted from Dunlap Lodge in 2003 because I wanted to get more involved and due to Dunlap meetings being on Monday’s I could not attend due to my fire department training on that night. At Saco Lodge #9 I stepped up and assumed many positions becoming Master of Saco Lodge #9 in 2010 and have served on may of the Lodge committees. I then continued on my journey as District Deputy Grand Master of the 18th Masonic District from 2018 to 2019. In 2020 I was selected to be Grand Pursuivant for the Grand Lodge of Maine. On 2021 at the annual communication I was elected to the office of Grand Junior Warden, I have also served as an officer in the 18th Masonic District Masters & Wardens Association as Vice President and President for several terms.
Masonry has brought me in contact with many great men who have also been mentors to me and some that I look and cherish their advise in my path. I look forward to meeting as many great men as possible and rekindle old friendships and make new. So Mote It Be.
