What is it about?
The Freemasonry exhibit celebrates and promotes the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of Masonic history and the influence Freemasonry has on our society today. The story is told through a traveling exhibit from the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre containing storyboards and artifacts, regalia, and portraits of famous masons from around the world.
The feature exhibit is further enriched with contributions from the Grande Prairie Masonic Lodge and Lake Saskatoon Masonic lodge. The exhibit arrives just in time to mark the centennial of the first Masonic ceremonies held in the Grande Prairie area and is a precursor to the centennial celebrations for both lodges in the next year.
