Dear Brothers, Dear Guests,
Welcome to the General John J. Pershing Lodge Nr. 307 on the register of the Grootoosten der Nederlanden (Grand East of The Netherlands).
The Lodge has a truly international membership, drawing upon our military heritage, with brethren coming from across the world and from all walks of life. What we all have in common is our work on the “rough stone” – on ourselves – and our endeavour to practice the principles of Freemasonry, as we perceive them.
We welcome all regular Ancient Free and Accepted Masons to join our Lodge meetings every second Wednesday of each month from September up to and including June. We work in English under the Nova Scotia ritual.
In addition to our regular Lodge meetings, we organize social and charitable events throughout the year.
John J. Pershing, in full John Joseph Pershing was born 13 September 1860 in Laclede, Missouri, U.S. and died 15 July 1948, Washington, D.C. U.S. Pershing was an army general who commanded the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) in Europe during World War I.
“I want to see all of my people and speak to them so that we may forever be friends.”
