Travel – Mount Owl’s Head Degree
All Master Masons are cordially invited to attend our annual communication on Owl’s
Head Mountain on Saturday, September 24th 2022. The lodge will be opened rain or
shine according to custom on the summit of the mountain, 2,425 feet above sea level at
High Twelve or as soon thereafter as may be possible.
The work of the day will be to raise a Fellow Craft Mason from within The jurisdiction of
the Grand Lodge of Quebec, A.F. & A.M.
Brethren, their ladies and families are invited to join the members of Golden Rule Lodge
for a social gathering at the base of the mountain following the communication. Special
Owl’s Head medals, souvenir caps, lodge histories, pins and coins will also be on sale.
If you are planning to attend as a Masonic body please contact us as soon as possible,
as dispensations will be required. Dispensations will not be necessary for visiting
brethren attending as individual Master Masons.
The ski center’s chair lift will be in operation to bring visitors most of the way up the
mountain at the cost of $21.85 Cdn, tax included. However, there is still a ten or twenty
minute walk after disembarking the lift so brethren are reminded to wear sturdy footwear.
Outdoor clothing appropriate to the weather conditions is recommended (casual),
keeping in mind that the weather can be quite variable on the summit. Visiting Brethren
are also reminded to bring their own Masonic clothing. Please confirm your presence by
the 18th of August and if you will require a lift ticket, (method of payment for the chairlift
tickets will be communicated to you as soon as possible).
