The first question most people ask is "What is The Lodge?"
The Brighton Grammarians' Masonic Lodge is a service based club much like Rotary or Lions which is affiliated with Freemasons Victoria (www.freemasonsvic.net.au).
The traditions of the Masonic Lodge or Freemasonry are very old and require considerable time to explain. For those who are interested in learning more about the organisation, logon to the website above.
Brighton Grammarians' Lodge No. 433 was founded on 19th September, 1927 with some of the following well known BGS names among the foundation members:
H V Mitchell, H E Dixon, R W Tovell, Archdeacon Hancock, W A Jack just to name a few.
Many are under the mistaken impression the Freemasonry is a Secret Society. Nothing could be further from the truth! The traditions of Freemasonry dictate that some small parts of the ceremonies which are used to induct or initiate members are kept secret but the organisation itself is in no way a secret society. On the contrary, Freemasonry is a very open institution and a great supporter of charity and the needy in our community.
The Brighton Grammarians' Lodge meets on the second Wednesday of every month except January.
