Freemasonry employs the tools
and instruments of stonemasonry
to teach a system of morality, friendship,
and brotherly love, hence, the standard
emblem of Freemasonry is the square and
Freemasonry exists in various
forms all over the world, with a
membership estimated at around five
million (including approximately 480,000
in Great Britain and over two million in the
United States). There are more than 6,500
freemasons in New Zealand.
Over the last 30 odd years
freemasons in New Zealand have
donated over $4 million toward the
tertiary education of outstanding young
New Zealanders. This makes Freemasons
New Zealand one of the largest private
providers of tertiary scholarships.
We have again gone out to the
Lodge Almoners with this year's
Widow's Gift. We distributed just under
3,500 gifts, encouraging the Almoners to
treat it as a "gift for no reason".
Contrary to popular belief, the
Freemasons are not a secret
society. A Mason can freely tell people
they are a Mason. They just can’t reveal
the secrets of the order.

Will Drones Take Over the World?
This interesting YouTube clip looks at recent advances in drones. It is great to see their use being applied to getting help to people fast; and for undertaking hazardous jobs. Click the pic above.
A number of interesting articles in this edition. I particularly enjoyed the item on "the Lodge, Its Music, and the Organist". There are some lessons there we can abide by. Click the pic above.

I was intrigued to read in this edition that Victory Lodge (Nelson) had 10 candidates awaiting advancement. Not sure we'd cope these days with that many candidates! Click the pic above.
