We are very pleased to announce that the Ashlar Temple Association has been awarded a $20,000 Heritage Grant by the City of Nanaimo for refurbishments to the exterior of Ashlar Masonic Temple, 101 Commercial Street in downtown Nanaimo. Here is a link to an article about this in the Nanaimo News-Bulletin.
Here is the Nanaimo News-Bulletin video report of the grant:
Ashlar Lodge No. 3 extends its thanks to the City of Nanaimo and the City of Nanaimo Heritage Committee for this significant grant.
We will post reports about the progress of refurbishments, which we hope to have completed in time for the re-dedication of the Ashlar Masonic Temple in July 2017.
Ashlar Masonic Temple is listed on the Canadian Register of Historic Places and on the City of Nanaimo Heritage Register.
