Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of Prince Edward Island, A.F. & A.M.

On March 9, 1903 nine Master Masons from Mount Zion Lodge No. 12 who were resident in the Malpeque area met in the Forresters Hall “for the purpose of considering the advisability of forming a new Lodge of A.F & A.M..” The historic meeting was held only four days after the Brethren of Mount Zion Lodge had approved a proposal to build a new Lodge Room in Kensington.
