Hertfordshire Celebrations

We’ve been planning this for (almost) 300 years, and now it’s here – the Tercentenary of Grand Lodge, and it’s a cause for celebration.
Lots of events are taking place around the country – here are some special ones  for you to put in your diary.  Let’s use this as an opportunity to get together and tell our family, friends and the world at large what is so special about Freemasonry.

300 for 30

The Provincial Grand Master is keen to support local charities during this special year, and plans to give 30 individual grants of £300 each to local charities. He has asked Lodges to nominate small charities that would particularly benefit from such a donation. The list of charities that have benefited from this can be found here: http://pglherts.org/pgms-30-x-300-tercentenary-celebration-awards/
