Congratulations to R.W.Bro. Bill Grattan of

Acacia No.11 who was Installed as District Deputy Grand Master of Lakeland District for the 2020-2021 Masonic year!  The Installation took place in Andrew Alberta at his home and to allow for proper social distancing, only a few Brothers were present, but a great time was had by all.

Robert Gavigan Installed in the Chair of King Solomon for the 2020/2021 Masonic year by Installing Master, W.Bro. Dave Simpson. We are looking froward to a great year of Freemasonry under his guidance.  Congratulations to W.Bro. Gavigan and all his officers in their new positions!!

A special thanks and congratulations, from all the members of the Lodge, also goes out to W.Bro. Kriss Aiton for your dedicated service to the Lodge, in fulfilling your duties  as Worshipful Master of Ye Olde Craft Lodge in exemplary fashion for the past three years!  (2017-2020)  The organizational skills and unshakable commitment you showed during this time have been of immeasurable value to the Lodge!  Now, enjoy your time as Immediate Past Master!!

Since being Chartered in 1986, Acacia Masonic hall has been a home for Ye Olde Craft Lodge and many good memories will stay with us for years to come.  As we prepare to move our meeting location to Highlands Masonic Hall, we celebrate both the past and the future of our Lodge at this casual June meeting and BBQ Festive Board.

We reflect on the fact that a Lodge is made of the members and the true friendships that are developed inside and outside Lodge walls, regardless of where that building is located.

Thank you Acacia Masonic Hall for 32 years of support and we now look forward to moving ahead in our new home...

Highlands Masonic Hall.
