2008 News

December 2008 ~

Saw Minerva Lodge hold our annual Ladies to Dine evening with entertainment by Joanne Wenton, we had a fantastic evening with a raffle of over 20 prizes and a separate prize draw for a flat screen TV, DVD player and several DVD’s. The Lodge would like to thank all our guests and everyone who very kindly donated the prizes for our raffles. With Chocolates for the Ladies the usual 5 course meal and all wine included it was certainly a night to remember. We would like to offer a massive thanks to Bro. Alf Lamb and his wife Pat for their hard work in his year as Master of the Lodge, the evening was a massive success and was thoroughly enjoyed

Minerva Lodge (4002) Liverpool would like to wish our brothers in London at Minerva Lodge (3346), Mark Masons Hall all the very best for their Centenary celebrations this month and extend our warmest fraternal greeting to their Master and Brethren.

October 2008 ~

Our Lodge reformed in October 08 with great enthusiasm on the initiation of 2 new candidates whom we welcome warmly. We look forward to their progression and input in the coming years.

April 2008 ~ April see’s our last regular meeting for the next four months as the Brethren of Minerva Lodge 4002 enjoy our summer break. We still have events planned for a few evenings over the summer but we won’t be reforming the Lodge until October 2008. Our email system will still be open for all enquiries about the Lodge or the Masonic Hall Hope Street and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

“Happy to meet, Sorry to part, Happy to meet again.”

After Minerva Lodges latest donation to The New Masonic Samaritan Fund 2010 Festival, we have now achieved Grand Patron Status for our total donated monies. This is a great achievement by the brethren of Minerva Lodge 4002 and we have been more than pleased to have been able to contribute at this level to such a worthy cause.

February 2008 ~

Minerva Lodge was happy once again to support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution with their Hoylake Boathouse fund raising event held at Volkswagen Liverpool. Minerva representatives helped to organise the event and helped on the evening by working on the tombola. The evening was enjoyed by all and a substantial amount was raised for the R.N.L.I.

January 2008 ~

Happy New year one and all, we start 2008 with a piece of news which highlights the friendship and fraternal connection we have with our fellow brethren from different countries. On 4th January 2008 we had a visit from Bro. John Mooney who came to Hope Street in Liverpool from Limerick in Ireland. John is a member of Antient Lodge 13. He made connection with our Lodge through this website and asked if he could come and see our Masonic Hall in Liverpool, we were only too happy to do this for him and after affirmation of his status as a Freemason we were honoured to have him visit us. It was an excellent day, we showed John and his friend all around the vast complex which is The Masonic Hall, Hope Street and then had a long discussion on many varied topics over tea. Whilst chatting we heard some fascinating stories about Johns Lodge and its History, we have included a link to Antient Lodge No 13 for those who are interested in learning more about it. We’d like to thank John for his visit which was as enjoyable for us as I am sure it was for him.
