WHO WE ARE


Avon Glen is a Lodge of dedicated and active Freemasons of mixed age, backgrounds and ethnicity located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

We are members of the Masonic Fraternity operating under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Alberta.

 

“As FreeMasons – We are a group dedicated to personal growth and core values.”

Shoes divide men into three classes. Some men wear their father’s shoes. They make no decisions of their own. Some are unthinkingly shod by the crowd. The strong man is his own cobbler. He insists on making his own choices. He walks in his own shoes. We choose to walk in our own shoes.

—  S. D. Gordon

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU:

 

Freemasonry is a society which endeavors to help its membership become better through education and brotherly love. It is not a society like the rotary which exists for business connections, it is not a political party where you may expect everyone to have the same viewpoint. Freemasonry is an organization of members with varied beliefs, economic statuses and viewpoints that come together into a greater whole to lift each other out of our own closed in boxes to open our eyes to other viewpoints.
Avon Glen lodge traditionally hosts a fundraising Gala yearly to raise money for the Rite to Learn Foundation which helps support children with dyslexia through one on one tutoring as well as raising money for the Edmonton Women’s shelter “WIN house”. As well each of our individual members are also involved in various charitable groups and good acts each in their own right. We do not flaunt this as many groups do, after all, is charity really charity if you are doing it for the recognition?

Masonry is not meant for those looking for monetary gain, you will not magically find a job through masonry or get that raise you have been looking for. The Simpsons stonecutters lodge is a wild fantasy meant to poke fun at the irrationality of the idealized secret society. What we can do for you is provide a network of brethren always willing to lend an ear or a hand to those in need. You get out of masonry what you put in with exponential returns. Not in a monetary fashion, but through education and true fraternity.

Masonry has been central throughout the history of the world in many capacities. Most notable is the presence of Freemasons in the democratic reform of countries. George Washington, the first democratically elected president of the United States was a Freemason. Simon Bolivar, a Spanish freemason led Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Panama to democratic independence. Freemasonry is synonymous with freedom from persecution and freedom of thought, the antithesis of dictatorships. Masonry’s contribution through our existence to freedom and democracy worldwide is our crowning achievement.
