The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce is pleased to recognize the Saggahew Lodge A.F. & A.M. with the honor of Business of the Month for November 2016 for their outstanding community service to the greater Haverhill area.

Freemasonry is the world’s oldest and largest fraternity, and Saggahew Lodge has been a part of the Haverhill community for just over 150 years. The lodge was created out of Merrimack Lodge, the first Masonic lodge in Haverhill established in 1802.  It is an active lodge with an engaged membership.  Together, Haverhill Freemasons support the community by holding regular blood drives for the American Red Cross, the Child Identification Program and by participating in other charitable activities. The Lodge main goal is to provide our members with a place to continue to learn and practice the tenets of Freemasonry: Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

Freemasonry is comprised of adult men of good character from every country, religion, race, age, income, education, and opinion. Its body of knowledge and system of ethics is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while being devoted to his family, his faith, his country, and his fraternity.

In an effort to recognize outstanding achievement in the Greater Haverhill community, the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce formally identifies a “Business of the Month” approximately every four weeks. This award is given to a Chamber member that is a proven leader in their business or industry and excels in the areas of community involvement, economic growth, customer service and professional relationships.


Award winners are recognized in area newspapers highlighting their distinction as Business of the Month, receive a complimentary guest ticket to the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s exclusive “Annual Business Awards Breakfast” and are automatically entered into the running for the Annual Business of the Year award. That honor is announced during the annual breakfast in February 2016.

Companies may be nominated by any member business. This is a benefit available exclusively to Chamber members.
