100 years and going strong

A short article in the Almonte/Clareton Place EMC, a local news service out of Ontario Canada published this story today:

Masonic Temple in Carleton Place turns 100 years, St. John’s Lodge No. 63 hosts Friend to Friend Night.

Besides wanting to echo the congratulatory comments, its nice to see the good in the press and the positive impact being made by a local lodge.

The celebration is in honor of rebuilding of their lodge hall in 1910, following the greatest Carleton Place fire of living memory which destroyed 25 buildings between Bridge Street and Judson Street, including the Masonic Hall.

In the year following a new cornerstone was laid and the building erected to stand in the community to this day. You can see from a photo of its edifice, the workmanship put into the building.

A devoted student of the Western Mystery Traditions, Greg is a firm believer in the Masonic connections to the Hermetic traditions of antiquity, its evolution through the ages and into its present configuration as the antecedent to all contemporary esoteric and occult traditions. He is a self-called searcher for that which was lost, a Hermetic Hermit and a believer in “that which is above is so too below.” Read more about Greg Stewart.
