The Lodge celebrated its Fiftieth Anniversary with a Special Communication officially dubbed the “Jubilee Session” on June 29, 1907. The Worshipful Master, Bro. W.H. Watts, presided. His Address was “full of the spirit of Masonry.” M.W.Bro. W.K. Rogers also addressed the Brethren. The chairman of the celebrations and Lodge Secretary, V.W.Bro. W.P. Doull PM, shared a history of the Lodge, Jubilee Resume, which he had written and which was engrossed in the Minutes following 1907. Among those in attendance was M.W.Bro. Adam Murray PDGM of St. John’s Lodge and the only remaining Brother who was present at the institution of the Lodge in 1857. The Lodge had conferred two hundred and ninety-seven Master Mason Degrees in fifty years and recorded a membership of ninety-one including four Life Members in 1907. (Jubilee Resume)

The Brethren of Victoria Lodge have recorded many acts of remembrance for deceased members and some of the most impressive ceremonies in the Lodge Room have been associated with memorial activity. On December 16, 1902 the Brethren held a “Lodge of Sorrow’ in memory of the six Brethren who deceased in that year. A Catafalque was erected in the centre of the Lodge Room under which the three Greater Lights were draped in black. The Secretary shared a resume of each Brother’s Masonic Career. The Chaplain, Bro. G.M. Young, delivered an Address that was later printed for distribution. A Lodge of Sorrow was convened in 1893 following the death in the City of a Brother from New Brunswick. The casket was brought to the Lodge Room for an evening Memorial Service prior to being taken by train to New Brunswick. (Minutes, August 7, 1893)

The names of twenty-eight Brethren from Victoria Lodge appeared on the Memorial Tablet honouring those who served in the Great War. The Lodge was deliberate, generous and sincere in its response to the war effort generally and to the particular service of its own members. The membership was growing rapidly at that time and a particularly large number of candidates were admitted in 1915. The Lodge held thirteen Regular and twelve Special Communications. W.Bro. W.T. Wellner explained that many of the members wished to become Master Masons “prior to leaving for the front.” (Minutes, January 26, 1916) In October 1914 the Grand Master appealed for a contribution of $1 from each Freemason to support the establishment of the Queens Canadian Hospital by Canada Lodge in London, England. Victoria Lodge had a membership of one hundred and twenty-four and led all Lodges in the Jurisdiction with a contribution of $153. (Proceedings, 1915, p. 20-21) In March 1916 W.Bro. E.T. Carbonell first raised the matter of an Honour Roll of members in active service. The single reference to a gift for a Brother leaving for duty was in April 1918 when a wrist watch was presented to Bro. Mark Thornton Sterns. The Lodge contributed $50 to the Patriotic Fund in 1919. On November 7, 1921 the Brethren approved purchase ($5) of a wreath from “The Poppy Day Committee.”
