Banners of Craft Lodges in Hertfordshire (Continued)
Lodge of True Aim No: 9930
Following the support for the first Hertfordshire Provincial Clay pigeon shoot held in 2014 as a fundraising event for the 2019 Festival for the Royal Masonic Trust for Girls and Boys, the idea was tabled that a shooting Lodge in Hertfordshire, for shooters of all disciplines, shooting in the morning and meeting in the afternoon, might be well received.
The Provincial Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Paul Gower, expressed his support and asked if the membership might include Brethren from neighbouring and other Provinces. The response was very positive and twenty-nine Brethren came forward willing to become Founders, the majority from Hertfordshire but with several from across the borders and beyond.
The oldest Lodge in the Province, Hertford No. 403, was pleased to sponsor this, the newest Lodge in the Province, and suggested that the Lodge should meet at Mayflower Place, Several designs for the Lodge logo were tabled, and the design most favoured was submitted to Grand Lodge for approval, which was duly confirmed. This design has been used on both the Summons the Founders Jewels, and the Lodge Banner.
After the consecration by RW Bro Paul Gower on 20th January, 2017 word steadily spread through the Province, and within the first four years of the lodges existence, membership rose to a total of fifteen Initiates and sixteen joining members in addition to the twenty-nine Founders.
The Lodge of True Aim No. 9930 has taken its place as a healthy and strong Lodge alongside its peers in "Happy Hertfordshire."
