International Visit to Skopje – North Macedonia

Tuesday Feb. 20th 2024 was a special day for Brother Dario Venovski who was invited to attend a very special meeting and installation of a new Master of The Vardar Lodge No.08 in Skopje – North Macedonia.

This was also a special occasion for Brother Dario on a personal level as Skopje is the City he is originally from.

The 2 day event culminated with the main meeting which took place on Feb. 20th. The Installation ceremony and Emulation Ritual were executed flawlessly with over 70 brethren in attendance including the MW Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Macedonia and the Honorary Grand Master of the National Grand Lodge of Romania.

Brother Dario addressed the brethren and stated that it was an incredible privilege and honour to be invited and to be a part of such an event, which just goes to prove that Freemasonry is truly Universal.

All protocols for international visits from Lodges Under the UGLE were strictly observed. Brethren from Lodges inclusive of Romania, Serbia, Germany as well as Türkiye were also in attendance

An interesting detail worth a mention, is that even though organised Freemasonry in Macedonia is new, the direct light for the forming/consecration of the Grand Lodge of Macedonia was given directly by the UGLE which is an enormous privilege and pride for Macedonian Freemasons.

Heartfelt congratulations to all involved in this very special meeting with best wishes from Dalhousie and Call Sign Lodge No.865.
