Lodge Officers 2024 - 2025

Freemasonry is often referred to as a Craft, a term that harks back to its historical connections with medieval stonemasons and the specialized training it imparts through initiation ceremonies for new members. Each Lodge operates democratically, with its members electing officers to oversee the Lodge’s functions. These office bearers are distinguished by their ‘jewels,’ symbolic ornaments that draw inspiration from the tools of ancient stonemasons.
