Hall dedication

On June 25 at noon, the city of Eureka will dedicate the new Veterans Memorial Hall at 1018 H St. The Masons of Humboldt Lodge No. 79, who have been part of the Eureka community since 1855, along with officers of the Grand Lodge of California’s Grand Master Jeffrey M. Wilkins and local dignitaries, will commemorate this event by conducting a formal re-dedication of the building’s cornerstone. The event is open to the public and all are welcome.

The Masonic cornerstone ceremony is a time-honored tradition, which has taken place for hundreds of years in the United States and around the world. During the ceremony, the Grand Master and other Masonic officials dress in formal Masonic regalia as they dedicate the building in a ceremony that includes a symbolic blessing with corn, wine and oil, which are Masonic symbols of prosperity, health and peace. The tradition is rooted in the historical significance of a cornerstone, which is the first stone set in building a foundation of masonry.
