Message from the Grand Master


It is hard to believe that  my term as Grand Master is almost half finished.  During my acceptance remarks I encouraged all of us to be builders of self, Lodge and community.  As I have been traveling throughout the jurisdiction I am encouraged by the results I am seeing.  I am seeing more examples of Lodges reaching out into their communities and demonstrating the good works that Freemasons do.  We are showing people that we are not a secret society but a group of concerned citizens attempting to make our communities better places to live and work.  As a result of these good works, as well as the visibility we have received from our participation in parades, we seem to have an unprecedented growth in new Brothers.  Our next biggest challenge will be for each of us to ensure these Brothers are engaged and excited to come to Lodge.  I am also encouraged by what I am seeing for education programs in the lodges I have visited and the amount of inter-Lodge visitation taking place.  The education programs are interesting and informative and well received.  I think we should be asking our newest Brothers what they would like to see happening in their Lodge for education and instruction and keep them engaged.  I have also had the pleasure of presenting a number of long term service medallions and bars to Brothers.  In most cases these Brothers still take active rolls in their Lodges.  Congratulations to all of you.

I would like to thank everyone again for showing your faith in me by allowing me to serve you as Grand Master and making the year a memorable one.  My traveling companions and I look forward to seeing all of the Brethren as we visit your Lodge or attend various functions.

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Paul E. Frank, GM

Five Year Strategic Plan for Grand Lodge

The Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) of the Board of General Purposes has launched a 5 year strategic plan that will consult and engage the Masonic fraternity throughout the province to develop a Five Year Strategic Plan for the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia. The Plan is intended to assist Grand Lodge with guiding its direction and decision making .

Workshops / consultations are planned later this year in each district of the province to have discussion and solicit input into the strategic direction and priorities of Grand Lodge. Information on dates and locations of these workshops will be confirmed and communicated in September. We welcome and encourage all members of the Masonic fraternity to participate in this process as it is your opportunity to have a voice in the development of a Five Year Strategic Plan for Grand Lodge.
