Update On Resumption Of Regular Meetings Of Temple Lodge No. 33

Update – 27 August 2021

Due to subsequent developments in provincial public health policy and the resulting Grand Lodge of B.C. & Yukon policy, the Regular Meeting of Temple Lodge No. 33 scheduled for 14 September 2021 and the Open Installation scheduled for 15 October 2021 have been cancelled.

 

R.W.B. Tom Tams, the Secretary of Temple Lodge No. 33, has circulated the following statement on the potential resumption of Regular Meetings of Temple Lodge No. 33 in September 2021:

“Wor. Bro. Pirie, Wor Master elect Tim Brown and myself met to discuss opening plans for temple Lodge. We took into account the situation as it is now and how it may develop in the near future.

The consensus was that for the meeting Sept. 14th those not fully vaccinated would be required to wear a mask. For the open installation Oct. 5th, only those fully vaccinated would be admitted.

Everything is tentative and subject to change. We have no knowledge of what measures the government will invoke between now and Sept. 7th or what the position of Grand Lodge will be so please take this all under advisement and we will try to keep you all up to date.

Fraternally,
R.W.B. Tom Tams
Secretary, Temple Lodge No. 33″

M.W. BRO. DONALD WALTER MACKENZIE

Grand Master 2020-2021

MW Bro Don Mackenzie was born in New Westminster on 4 April 1951 and educated in Maple Ridge. Our Grand Master is a proud seventh generation Freemason. As you would expect, he was exposed to Freemasonry from a young age, which influenced his early childhood. This masonic influence has continued throughout his adult life.

In 1974 he started a more than thirty-year career contracting for Columbia Bitulithic, a well established paving and road building contractor located in Vancouver.

Our Grand Master was initiated in May of 1992, passed in February of 1993, and raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason in March of 1993, in Prince David Lodge No. 101, in Maple Ridge. He was elected as Worshipful Master for the 1997-1998 Masonic year, the fourth member of his family to hold that office.

Our Grand Master has served as Director of Ceremonies for his lodge on several occasions and has stepped into other rôles whenever necessary. He was appointed District Deputy Grand Master, representing District 28 for MW Bro Donald E. Stutt for 2013-2014.

He is a 32º Scottish Rite Freemason and a member of Fraser Valley Lodge of Perfection. Our Grand Master was elected Junior Grand Warden in 2017 and installed as Grand Master in June of 2020.

Married in 2006 to Rita, they have a blended family of three sons, two daughters, and nine grandchildren.

When not being busy with Freemasonry MW Bro. MacKenzie also enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, camping, and travel.
