Mount Olivet Masonic Lodge

The Masonic Lodge members will be conducting their MasoniChIP program during the Thorndale Easter Event.
This event is at West Nissouri Public School on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 10:30-11:30am

First established in Thorndale: 1873. Continually active ever since

Current Number of Members:

We are not a service group. Specifically, we are a fraternal organization for men over the age of 21 and known as Freemasons, or simply Masons.

Who we are:
Masons are spiritual and moral men who choose to associate with a group of like-minded individuals for mutal benefit. What we find in freemasonry is a disciplined and systematic course of self-improvement based on the Golden Rule.

What We Do:
We meet regularly (except summer) for self improvement and fellowship, however, we also raise money annually for some specific donations to our community of Thorndale.

Masonry offers the opportunity to make each man better through its teachings, his Masonic associations and a philosophy that has served the social needs of men for centuries, by promoting: Tradition, Self Improvement, Sense of Accomplishment, Fellowship-Belonging to a Like-minded Group, and a break from the workday routine.

Third Thursday of each month from September to June at 7:30 PM

Examples of past projects: Donations to various community needs: Public School equipment, VON, Boy Scouts, Food Bank, Fire Department, Splash Park, Medical Centre roof and every two years, or so we host a Child Identification program with records and materials for parents to keep for police in case their child goes missing.
