Update to Original Post (see below)
After giving the matter due consideration, we have decided to postpone the Open House we had planned for Saturday 13 May 2017 and combine it with out 150th Anniversary and Ashlar Masonic Temple re-deidication on 15 July 2017.
We will post more information about the 15 July 2017 event shortly.
We are planning on having an Open House at Ashlar Masonic Temple on Saturday 13 May 2017 to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the first Masonic Lodge meeting in Nanaimo, which was held on 15 May 1867.
The location of the 15 May 1867 meeting was a now demolished building at the corner of Cavan Street and Hecate Street. Ashlar Lodge No. 3 has been meeting at our 101 Commercial Street location since 1873.
We will release more details about the Open House after our April Regular Meeting on 5 April 2017.
