HISTORY OF THE GRAND LODGE OF ALBERTA, AF & AM, 1905-1955

HISTORY OF THE GRAND LODGE OF ALBERTA, AF & AM
1905-1955

by
MW Bro. Sam Harris
Grand Master of The Grand Lodge of Alberta
1940-1941

 

This book was written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Grand Lodge of Alberta but was never published. A copy of the work (one of just a very few) typewritten on onion skin paper, was found in the property of Spitzie Lodge No. 6 and was borrowed so that it could be digitized. Due to the typing, the quality of the paper and the deterioration brought on by time, a lot of editing was required.

 

The writer was a very active Freemason and after serving as Grand Master in 1940-1941 was for several years, the Grand Historian. It was in this capacity that he produced the book.

 

The initial part is an vivid description of early life in Alberta which is followed by the recounting of the stories of the first 18 Lodges; the ones which formed The Grand Lodge of Alberta

 

The writer talks of the actual formation of the Grand Lodge and then methodically presents a synopsis of each of the first 50 Annual Communications plus the Especial Communication held to celebrate the 50th Anniversary.

 

Photos and, for some, biographies of the first 50 Grand Masters as well as some other photographs are included.

 

A snapshot of time written almost 60 years ago and which, for the first time, is made available to ALL interested members of the Fraternity especially those in the jurisdiction of The Grand Lodge of Alberta

MY BOOK, MY OPINION !

MY BOOK, MY OPINION !
or
Thoughts Garnered on My Masonic Journey

by
MW Bro. Hugh Young
Grand Master of The Grand Lodge of Alberta
1997-1998

 

After more than 40 years of being an active Freemason, the author has put his thoughts about Freemasonry down in black and white.

 

His knowledge and understanding of the Craft shines throughout this book and while you may agree or disagree with some parts, it will make you think about aspects of Freemasonry that perhaps you prefer not to think about.

 

Those who have previewed the book often make the statement that they agree with most things in the book BUT... at which point the author reminds them of the title of the book "My Book! My Opinion!"

 

A book worth the reading by Officers, Past Masters, in fact, by anyone who has an interest in the on-going welfare of his Lodge.

AFGHANISTAN
A Soldier's View from the Ground Up

AFGHANISTAN

A Soldier's View from the Ground Up

by
Kimberly Dwight

 

This book is not a Masonic book but a book written by a Mason deployed to Afghanistan with the Canadian Armed Forces.

 

Afghanistan - the book Afghanistan - a country of extreme poverty, of tribal warfare, of unique culture. A country which has suffered invaders since Alexander the Great. A place where the armies of the free world have been embroiled in an unwinable war against terrorism; have been involved in assisting the Afghans to establish a secure stable environment.

 

This book is not written by a journalist looking for the story to make their career nor by a politician keen to show himself as wise to the voting populace. It is written by a career soldier of the Canadian Military who served, in a support role, in the current military action. 200 pages of facts, photos, knowledge and opinion.

 

In the words of the author "Having deployed to Afghanistan I had the privilege of working with the UN agencies, Non-Government Agencies and some International agencies that were attempting to assist in the redevelopment of the country. This book is my opinion of just how little has been achieved over what could have been."

 

This book is insightful as to the Afghan people and their way of life and is an eye-opener for all.

 

A great value at $30.00 CAD (plus $6.00 s&h in Canada; $8.00 to USA)

 

NOTE: This book is purchased from the author's private company - 1513518 Alberta Inc. - and this will appear in the comment field of the PayPal debit on your Credit Card bill as such.
