Welcome to the Ruapehu District
District Grand Master
The Ruapehu District can be described as a Large rural area with two centres of major population.
5 Lodges are centred in Palmerston North in two Masonic buildings at Church Street and Fitzherbert Ave. 3 lodges are centred in Wanganui in Dublin Street. The remaining 5 Lodges are in satellite towns.
The towns draw their membership from a mainly rural gender whilst the main centres have a wider demographic. This leads to a diverse membership which promotes lively debate.
The following Lodges make up the Ruapehu District:
Lodge Rangitikei No. 38 Marton
The Manawatu Kilwinning Lodge No. 47 Palmerston North:
Otangaki Lodge No. 70 Ashhurst
