The Low XII Riders Central Maine Chapter of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association (primarily Bangor and the surrounding area) welcomes you to our website. We’re a group of Master Masons who’ve banded together to more fully enjoy our hobby of motorcycle riding while emphasizing the tenets and principles of Freemasonry.
Bro. Ernie “Bad Pipes” Smith makes a presentation to the Belfast Community Concerns Food Pantry on behalf of the Widows Sons Low XII Chapter. This food pantry does some wonderful work for folks in the Belfast area and we are happy to support their endeavors.

The Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association of Maine (along with some Vermont WS Brothers as well) took part in our annual Ride for the Brotherhood to raise funds for the Maine Masonic Charitable Foundation. Had a great ride although it did get pretty toasty towards the end. We left from and rode back to Anah Shrine (thanks, Nobles!) where we had a great lunch put on by the Anah Clowns, who ALSO do some great charity work. Each Maine WS Chapter contributed and our net proceeds of $3,900 was presented to the Grand Master. Congratulations to all!!!
Our chapter presented a check to the Bangor Homeless Shelter for $1,000. We know the money will go to a great cause. Thanks to the brothers, albeit on 4 wheel due to rain, for the presentation.
While we are still facing challenging times during this pandemic, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. While some Widows Sons charitable rides are being canceled for the early start of our season, many events are gearing up to be successful events as they have been in the past. The Northern Invasion, North Woods Rendezvous, The Widows Cup, and even our own Marvin Tarbox Memorial Ride to name a few.
We still have Covid-19 protocol to follow while enjoying our riding season, but once we pick our feet up, that never seems to be an issue. This can still be one of many riding seasons to remember, and things should get better as we go, but let’s do it smart. Remember, we are Masons, and are the examples of the Fraternity. Please respect others opinions and precautions, and enjoy time with our Brothers and Sisters, while we do what we love, in masonry and in motion.
