St. John’s No.4 – 145 years
One hundred and forty-five years ago, John Walter Harris, a member of Polar Lodge No. 113, Grand Lodge of Iowa, and seventeen other brethren petitioned The Grand Lodge of Manitoba for a dispersion to form a new lodge in the City of Winnipeg. The Grand Lodge of Manitoba had been instituted just eight short weeks prior on May 12th, 1875. Little delay was lost as the prayer of the petitioners was answered on July 6th, St. John’s Lodge No. 4 was instituted on Wednesday, July 7th, 1875, the first lodge in the jurisdiction to use the Ancient York Rite work. The officers were John Walter Harris W.M., Archibald McNee Senior Warden, and Stewart McDonald Junior Warden.
The invitation to visit St. John’s No.4 by the Lodges of the First Masonic District is still open for Wednesday, February 5th, 2020
The FC degree for that evening has been moved to a later date, but the evening is still planned, short Regular meeting followed with good fellowship and a wee bit of Scottish fare …
Please let us know if your Lodge can attend and the approximate number of brethren so we can acquire enough Haggis, etc. !!!
