History of Alexandria Lodge No 439
This Masonic institution boasts 100 years of continuous existence in the community, having provided an opportunity for good men to become better, and to practice virtue, honor and mercy, and too, of course allow the forming of lasting friendships, through brotherhood. Masonry has meant a great deal more in this community, as the teachings of masonry have allowed our brethren to show leadership in a public way of those principals inculcated in the craft.
Founded on April 17, 1896 by United Empire Loyalist, meetings were a major fixture in the lives of men, often traveling by train, horse back, carriage or on foot, just to attend their regular meetings.
The term Mason meant more than a sign on the door or a symbol etched on the fence post. It reflected how men were looked upon. To be accepted into such an elite group of men was an honor and a tribute to a mans character. Traits that were often found, were just and upright men, honest, and dependable. With roots stretching back across the millennia, the masons can rightly claim to be the heirs of some of the greatest craftsmen the world has ever seen.
Today Masonry competes with many organizations and groups, but the fundamental principles of masonry still hold true, strong and free. It is these principles that will lead our lodge, Alexandria #439 into the future
