PUERTO DE XÀBIA 58 ENJOY A FASCINATING JOURNEY THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THE MASONIC APRON

Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, for a whirlwind journey through the intriguing world of Masonic aprons! On February 13th 2024, that’s what Puerto de Xàbia Lodge had the pleasure of enjoying.

Picture this: W. Bro. Peter de Graaf, our esteemed guide, regaling us with tales that span centuries. With wit and wisdom, he unravelled the enigmatic origins of the Masonic apron, from its humble beginnings in the hands of medieval operative Masons to the dazzling array of designs we sport today.

Hold onto your hats (or apron strings) as W. Bro. De Graaf unveiled his treasure trove of research, whisking us away on a whirlwind tour of aprons worn by luminaries like George Washington, as well as those from the bonnie lands of Scotland and Ireland. We delved into the hidden meanings and symbolism woven into every stitch, unlocking the secrets of Masonic tradition.

But wait, there’s more! We feasted our eyes on a dazzling display of aprons from across the globe, spanning Spain to Germany and beyond. It was a riot of colors, patterns, and emblems, each telling its own unique story of brotherhood and camaraderie.

And the ‘pièce de résistance’? W. Bro. De Graaf’s proud announcement that his prized collection of Masonic regalia will be offered as a permanent loan to the new Temple building, ensuring that generations of Freemasons in the Valencian Province can benefit from the glory of Masonic history for years to come.
