TYoaBM – Installation at the Stewards Lodge

This evening was the Installation meeting of the North Wales Lodge of Provincial Grand Stewards.

It is always great going to the Stewards Lodge and seeing the sea of red, because no matter how high you rise in freemasonry, you wear your red in the stewards lodge. If you have never visited one, you really need to.

This evening was a special one, since for the first time in ages we were not holding the Installation meeting at the Masonic Hall in Llandudno, but were in Wrexham. And a local Mason was going into the chair, so it was a very enjoyable meeting, made more by watching Rolly go into the chair.

The festive board was also extremely enjoyable, due to the people on my table. Tonight would have made a great high to end the Masonic year on. But there is more to come, I think I now have just 8 meetings left this year.

Freemasonry (Craft)

One of the oldest social and charitable organisations in the world, Freemasonry's roots lie in the traditions of the medieval stonemasons who built our cathedrals and castles.

It is here that a number of the famous elements of Freemasonry find their roots. In the medieval era, stonemasons often travelled around to find work in different locations. To demonstrate their level of qualification, they would use grips, words and signs in order to distinguish themselves from unqualified builders.

Freemasonry uses building analogies to teach members how to lead productive lives that benefit the communities that they live in. In the medieval era, stonemasons wore aprons and gloves to protect themselves while working on shaping rough pieces of stone, but in today’s society Freemasons meet to build friendships and communities rather than cathedrals and castles.
