Tercentenary Celebration August 2017 – Appeal


All Worshipful Masters / Secretaries of Lodges in the District

Dear Brethren,

The Tercentenary Celebrations of UGLE is in 2017 and is celebrated throughout the Districts, Regions and culminating at London on 31st October 2017. Our District celebrates during the Half Yearly DGL Meeting at Chennai between 10th and 12th of August 2017. A committee had been formed by our R W District Grand Master to oversee the preparations under the stewardship of our PDGM, RW Bro K.R.N. Menon.

We have lined up a few important events to mark the celebrations which would be attended by one of the Rulers from UGLE representing MW the Grand Master.

Mozart Music Show

As many of you are aware, Mozart, the music genius, was a keen Mason and many of his compositions were on Freemasonry. We will have two shows of his compositions conducted and sung by some of the best classical music talents in the city on August, 9th and 10th. The first show would be for the public and the show on Thursday 10th would be for the brethren of the District and their families and friends.

Coffee-Table-Book on 300 years of our District

This project has been given to the famous Madras Historian, Sriram V, who will research, compile and author the Book. It will be a top-of-the-line production and will find its place in important Masonic libraries around the world including the UGLE. This will be an ultimate reference book on our District covering the past 300 years. Of course, each and every Brother of District should own a copy.

We plan to release this on Fri 11th at DGL at forenoon.

The cost for the above two events comes to about Rs 30 lakhs. RW DGM had already mentioned in his speech at Kozhikode DGL meeting last month about these programs. Of course we need the support of the brethren and the Lodges of our District to see these events are a great success.

Please do contribute generously towards the Tercentenary Celebrations. If not bulk you can commit a sum and forward to us in installment too. Each Lodge may contribute a minimum of Rs 1,50,000/- or more.

Cheques can be drawn in favour of the District Grand Lodge of Madras and please do mention in your covering letter the purpose of Tercentenary Celebrations.

The cost of the Book and the cost of the Ticket for the Music show will be greatly subsidised or even made free depending on the generosity of the brethren and their contribution.

Looking forward to your support.

Thank you
Yours Fraternally,
District Grand Secretary
