NEWS from our Lodge for the 2018-2019 Masonic year.

Our elections have been completed and we will be installing our Master elect at our Regular Meeting in November.

Our Lodge holds several events throughout the Masonic year.

At our regular meeting in October each year, we hold our elections.

At our regular meeting in November, we install the new Master of the Lodge and invest his officers.

When it comes time for Remembrance Day, our lodge will march to the cenotaph in Markham and lay a wreath of remembrance. There are several remembrance day events that many Masons will attend as a lodge and Markham Union Lodge is no exception. In Markham, the Remembrance Day ceremonies and march to the cenotaph begins at the Markham District Veterans Association on the appointed day at the appointed time.

In December we hold a Festive Christmas and Holiday Season party for all of our members and their families. Our Lodge also participates in the Markham Santa Claus parade yearly. We enjoy all friends and family that can come and join us as we parade with Markham in its joyous celebration. The kids love it too!

In February we hold our open house and Friend to Friend evening at the lodge. This event is an open door to all men who seek more information about our lodge, its membership requirements and Freemasonry in general.

Also in February, typically on the first Saturday of the month, our lodge's social club, Club 87 hosts our Annual Robert Burns Supper. This again is for the members and their friends and families to come and enjoy an evening of Scottish culture, a celebration of Scotland's Bard, a feast and entertainment often provided by lively highland dance troupes accompanied by pipe and drum bands.

When spring arrives, our lodge holds a Ladies Luncheon for all the wives, partners and widows of the members of our lodge. This special event is held for the women only so that they can meet and get to know each other.

In June, on the fourth (4th) Wednesday, we hold our annual Strawberry Night event. This is our last meeting before we close the lodge for summer and we celebrate the coming of summer with natures delicious offerings of strawberries and a special evening of Masonic fellowship and brotherhood.

Also in June, our Lodge enjoys attending the The Toronto East District Black and White Gala. Which is held in the name of charity to raise funds for our District Deputy Grandmasters chosen charity.

In July and August, our Lodge is closed for the Summer, but there are still Masonic events that are happening. Grand Lodge Annual Communication taking place in mid July, our district Senior Wardens charity event happens in August and all are welcome to enjoy their offerings.

During the year, various lodges will hold Blood Donation Drives for the Canadian Blood Services. Whether you are a Mason or not, this is an incredibly important donation that you too could make at any time.

Throughout the year, we encourage our members to travel through the district and to attend other lodges and meet other brethren. All in an effort to be happy and spread happiness!
