        Bruce District

Welcome to the New and Improved Bruce District Website!

On behalf of the twelve Lodges of Bruce District I would like to extend a warm Bruce District Welcome! Bruce District extends from Wiarton in the North, Saugeen Shores in the West, Harriston in the South, and Hepworth/Tara in the East. The Lodges are not just exclusive to Bruce District, we also include Hanover Lodge which resides in Grey County. I invite you to attend any of the many public events put on by the Lodges of Bruce District, from Curling Bonspiels and Golf Tournaments to Pancake Suppers, Xmas Dinners, Fish Fry's and our Masons & Family Divine Church Service.

The Theme I have chosen for this year is "Respect and Recognition" As I visit each Lodge this year I hope to communicate my thoughts on this to all the Brethren.

The Craft has recently celebrated the "300th Anniversary of the Formal Founding of Freemasonry", which recognized the creation of an organized body governed by the Grand Lodge of England in 1717. In the words of our Past Grand Master, John C. Green, in the handout commemorating the event:

" Masons are proud of their heritage and the principles by which they live, Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. Masons quietly practice to be good citizens by the manner in which they conduct their lives, being charitable to all mankind no matter race, nationality, sect, age or condition. Hence the principles of Freemasonry is every shape, when carried into practice, aim directly at the alleviation of human misery, the advancement of peace, the harmony and happiness of society and friendship and brotherly affection of all inhabitants of the world."

If you feel this is something that might interest you and would like further information about our Lodges or the Craft, feel free to contact the Secretaries of any of the Lodges listed on this site or register yourself at the bottom of any of these Webpages and our Webmaster will put you in touch with the appropriate individual
