EVENTS & Hall Use
Masonic events are generally invite only, however our facilities host a number of community groups from local artisans to business meeting space. Special events and gatherings always draw a good crowd. Our member functions are fun for the young, and young at heart. Maybe we'll see you at the next Renaissance Dinner.

The Masonic Family in Dryden
Golden Star 484
Dryden's Craft lodge is Golden Star 484. Freemasons gather together as a Lodge to work the three Degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason. While there is no degree in Freemasonry "higher" than that of Master Mason, there are concordant bodies such as the York or Scottish Rite which offer further study. There are also organizations such as the Shrine where members must be Master Masons in good standing. Golden Star 484 shares it's facilities with the concordant bodies listed.

Dryden Shrine Club
The Dryden Shrine Club helps children in the area with a world-class network of specialized hospitals that treat children with orthopedic conditions, burns of all degrees, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate, up to their 18th birthday, free of charge.
The Dryden Shrine Club raises money locally for the transportation of area children and their families to the hospital that will be able to help them best. An initial assessment clinic is located in Winnipeg and run through the Khartum Shrine Club. This is an easier and less stressful way for the children to get the help we can deliver.
