On February 16th, 2003, a severe snow storm swept across Northern Virginia. The stated meeting was to be held the on the 17th while the storm was still dropping in excess of 24 inches of snow. Rather than requesting a dispensation to cancel the meeting, three hardy masons, Jay Patterson (Junior Warden), Barry Bartley (Master – 1999) and Don Gauger (Junior Steward) persisted in their efforts and opened a Master Masons lodge at 7:30 PM. The lodge was closed at 7:45 PM. The shortest stated meeting in lodge history.

On August 6, 2007 the dues for Herndon lodge were raised from $73 to $100.
