Meridian Lodge No.687


Background
 

In 1950, West Hamilton and the suburbs of Ancaster experienced rapid growth. As a result, it was determined that the creation of a new Lodge was required to meet Masonic enrollment requests.

 

In October 1956, a group of senior masons began a series of meetings which led to the first meeting of Meridian Lodge # 687, under dispensation, on February 13, 1957. Meridian Lodge #687 was instituted and consecrated on October 9, 1957 at the Masonic Temple in Dundas when M.W.Bro. Harry L. Martyn was our Grand Master.

 

Meridian Lodge continued to meet in Dundas until relocating to Ancaster in 1984.

 

In its first 53 years, Meridian Lodge has numbered amongst its members: one William Mercer Wilson medal, two Grand Chaplains, one Grand Organist, one Grand Senior Deacon, three Grand Standard Bearers, one Grand Sword Bearer, two Grand Stewards, three District Deputy Grand Masters and one Grand Master, M.W.Bro. Norman E. Byrne.

 

Members of Meridian lodge, along with our present (2011 – 2012) Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Stephen Cowell, look forward with confidence to the future.
