Commitment and Dedication
Nobles of Upper St. John River Valley
We would like to welcome you!
On Tuesday evening on January 20th, 1903 a group of Nobles from Karnak Shriners met at the Masonic Temple in Saint John, N.B. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the formation of a Shrine Temple in the Maritime Provinces.
After several other meetings with other Nobles present, the name LUXOR was selected and Dr. G.A. Hetherington was chosen as the first Potentate. A dispensation dated May 20th, 1903 authorizing the Temple to conduct business was received. At the Imperial Council Sessions held in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. the Charter for the Temple was issued, dated July 9th, 1903.
On the role of Luxor Temple appear the names of many leaders of the Masonic Fraternity, not only in New Brunswick but throughout the Country.
