Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

Port Morien's This­tle Lodge cel­e­brates its 150th an­niver­sary this week, mak­ing it the third old­est Ma­sonic lodge on the is­land.

Mem­bers took part in the Morien Mem­o­ries pa­rade on July 30, with other lodges from around Cape Bre­ton.

There will also be an open house on Aug. 1, at the hall in Port Morien from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., where mem­bers of the public can visit and learn more about the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

For those in­ter­ested in join­ing, ap­pli­ca­tions will be avail­able.

The This­tle Lodge No. 36 is a Freema­son lodge, and was first or­ga­nized by the Grand Lodge of Eng­land in 1865 and was char­tered in 1866.

The lodge con­tin­ues its long tra­di­tion of rais­ing money for char­i­ties, in­clud­ing the Glau­coma Fund and Alzheimer's, as well as schol­ar­ships. One of their most pop­u­lar fundrais­ers are the fish­cake and bean take­out sup­pers held three times an­nu­ally, with the next one ex­pected some­time this sum­mer.
