2019 PROGRAMME OF PROVINCIAL EVENTS
2018 was a busy year for Derbyshire Freemasons. It marked the 100th year anniversary of Armistice day - the day that the guns fell silent and World War One effectively came to an end. It also marked the 75th anniversary of " Operation Chastise " well known as the Dambusters raid. Derbyshire Freemasons marked these important events by supporting air cadet corps throughout the Province and were delighted and honoured by the presence of George " Johnny " Johnson, the last surviving British air crew from the famous raid. A new war memorial was unveiled at the Grange in Derby to replace the one lost in the fire there some years ago.
As 2019 continues, the Province will be holding more events - proudly supporting the community and bringing Freemasonry into view of the public. Please re-visit this programme of events regularly as updates will be published as soon as they become available.
