Interprovincial Day

Interprovincial Day
September 27/14

As you can see above our day is set and will be going ahead as planned. As you all know Westmorland Lodge of GLNB will be hosting our first Interprovincial Day and the meeting will be starting at 2:00 PM. Once our meeting is over which should be around 5:00PM we will be having a meal of Seafood Chowder and we will have Chilli for those who do not like Seafood. The meal will have a small charge for cost recovery only.

All visiting Brethren to this meet will enter once the host Lodge has open the Lodge meeting and the two visiting Jurisdictions will be paraded in led by the  Grand Director of Ceremonies (or whoever is acting as such) of each Jurisdiction and GDC will introduce the Grand Master or his Designate, and all other visitors from his Jurisdiction. When entering the Lodge the GLNS will line up on the North side line and GLPEI will line up on the South side line. 
During the meeting we will be handling all business that we feel needs to be done to get us started on a path that will see this carry on for many years. All business will be done after all Brethren are present in the Lodge as we will all have a say on how we will carry on into the future.
Alexandria Lodge No. 87 of Cumberland County District of GLNS will be hosting our Interprovincial Day in 2015 and they will be closing our 2014 Interprovincial Day under the Ritual of the GLNS.
Prince of Wales Lodge No. 18 of GLPEI will be doing the education at our first meeting and I have been told that the education will be very interesting.
We would like to get a rough count of the number of visiting Brethren so we will have enough food prepared for all. If when sending this letter out someone could be appointed from each Jurisdiction to compile a list of names that are planning on attending and then forward this list to me Buddy Trenholm at by September 22nd would go a long way in making our Day a success. 
This should be a great Day for the Fraternities of our three Jurisdictions and if all goes well we should be able carry on for many years and make it better each year

Five Year Strategic Plan for Grand Lodge

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

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.
