Featured Lodge

In this issue I want to write about The Far North Lodge #199.
Well – the name says it all!
The Lodge is located above the Arctic Circle and is the most northerly Lodge in the Western Hemisphere.
The home town of this unusual lodge is Inuvik, North West Territories, Canada. It was instituted in 2003. You can contact their secretary:

Make sure you also visit the official web site of the town of Inuvik. A lovely small town in the far north that enjoys 56 days of twenty four hours of daylight (late June, July and part of August) and has 30 days without sunlight mostly in the month of December. Temperatures there vary between –56 C in winter (yes, minus fifty six Celsius!), and up to 31 C in Summer.
