Submitting Photographs for our Website or District "B"'s Facebook Page

 

Brethren are encouraged to submit photos pertaining to their own Lodges, as well as other events happening throughout the Hamilton Districts. When taking photographs, please consider taking a couple of quick notes depicting who are in the photographs, along with their Masonic rank and lodge name/number, etc. and provide us with the information when you send Bro. Ajai Datta, or myself photographs for posting on the Hamilton 'B' website, and Facebook page. We do know a few people in an around the district, however, there are times our minds go "blank".  It saves us a great deal of time hunting down the missing information.  But, most importantly, we would like to ensure that we fully recognize the individuals in the photographs, as a person's correct name and spelling is very important.

"The Red Tavern"

 

Union Lodge No. 7's Original Meeting Place

 

December 17, 1799

 

The Red Tavern was owned by Bro. John Foote, who served Union Lodge as its first Secretary.

It was located on Main Street East, across from Clausen's Esso, where an

 oil change business and a dental office are located.

 

 

 

 

 

The Red Tavern model was built and graciously donated by

 

W. Bro. Douglas Bridges, a member of Harmony Lodge No. 57 in Binbrook.

 

A model railroad enthusiast, Doug spent over 220 hours creating this masterpiece.

 

Union Lodge No. 7 is truly indebted to him for his generous donation of time, materials and talent.

The Lodge of Strict Observance No. 27 Fraternal Visit

 General Mercer Lodge No. 584

 

April 13, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

The Lodge of Strict Observance No. 27 has continued with fraternal visits with General Mercer No. 548 since the early 1920s. They traveled to Toronto to participate in a Second Degree and were accompanied by R.W. Bro Thomas Young, although not a member of Strict, but a member of Strict. This fellowship that has continued between our two lodges for as many years, gives rise to the belief that so many brethren understood the value of continued friendships. It is our responsibility to convey some how, to the "new" generation, the value and benefits of visiting other lodges. As members of Strict have come and gone, our brethren made sure those following knew how important it was to continue what they had started, friendships that go beyond the square and compass, since 1924.

Hamilton Police Services Wall of Remembrance

 

September 27, 2017

 

Constable David Gregory

 

Lost His Life in the Line of Duty

 

August 29, 1962

 

Member Hugh Murray Lodge No. 602

 

 

 

On Wednesday Sept 27th the Hamilton Police Service conducted a re-dedication to their Wall of Remembrance for officers who lost their lives in the Line of Duty.  One of the Officers was Constable David Gregory, 26 years of age who was shot and killed on August 29th, 1962.  A former police officer who witnessed the shooting drew Constable Gregory's revolver and shot the assailant.  The assailant turned his own gun on himself and took his life. Investigation revealed the assailant had earlier shot and killed his own mother and a neighbour who came to his aid.

 
It was learned that Constable Gregory was also known as Brother David Gregory, four years a Mason with Hugh Murray Lodge Number 602.  
 
These pictures were taken at the grave site of where Brother David Gregory was laid to rest, his headstone is marked with the Square and Compasses.
