Grand Assembly March 2023

The Province of Valencia was well represented at the Grand Lodge Assembly in Barcelona on the 11th March 2023, with many Brethren making the effort to attend this prestigious event. The Assembly saw many dignitaries from the various Provinces in Spain, also with many Grand Lodge representatives from other Constitutions. The ceremony was conducted with all the pomp and pageantry you would expect from any Grand event of this kind, with the Deputy and Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies being from the Province of Valencia.

Dovre Feast Day

St Johanneslogen Dovre (184) has on its Feast Day installed brother Arne Krogstad as its new Worshipful Master. He takes over from brother Tom Kristoffer Halvorsen who has faithfully performed his work for 6 years. The lodge is growing after some difficult years with Covid, and holds meetings in the lodge house in Quesada. The log meetings take place in Norwegian (Nordic) and welcome visitors from other Nordic countries (also)! Also present at the installation were representatives from the Lodge Provincial de Valencia with Provincial Grand Master R.W. Bro. Rodney Charles Bignell in the lead.

Old Tower Lodge No 49 Help Feed the Hungry and Homeless

The members of Old Tower Lodge No 49, The Worshipful Master, W. Bro. Terry Sharley, and The PGM, R.W. Bro. Rodney Bignell, were very pleased to be able to donate more than 600€ worth of food items to help the needy in the Province as part of the PGM’s initiative to “Feed the Hungry and the Homeless”, particularly at this time of cost of living crisis.  The items were donated by the brethren to “Reach Out”, a charity based in Torrevieja who distribute much needed foodstuffs and essentials to those in need. Food bank collection centres have been established in both the Quesada and Costa Nova Masonic centres and Brethren are encouraged to remember those in need when doing their weekly shop.
