History / Biography
The Mons Rebecca Lodge 203 Arnprior takes its name from the Battle of the Mons fought in 1914. The first meeting was held on February 23 1920 in the Town Hall. Since that time the sisters met in the Oddfellow Lodge rooms on the third floor of Robertson’s Furniture Store on John Street. Eventually, the Lodge purchased a Temple building on Daniel Street, formerly the James Grierson home near the corner of Elgin Street. In 2001, the Lodge moved to a new hall located in the Town Hall which was named in honour of the late Oris Mather. Mrs. Goldie Miller (immediate past secretary) gave a speech about the Lodge’s 80 year history in February 2000 on the occasion of the Lodge's 80th anniversary. It was published in the September - December 2000 issue of “The Tabloid” and is included with the records. The order of procedure for meetings was as follows: Prayer, Roll Call, Minutes, Treasurer's Report, Collection, Correspondence, Business, Discussion, Place of Next Meeting, Mispah Benediction, Social Evening. According to A Code of General Laws of the I.O.O.F. 1915, "the Objects and Purposes of the Rebekah Lodges are declared to be: First. To visit and care for the sick; to relieve the distressed; to assist subordinate and sister Rebekah lodges in kindly ministrations to the families of Odd Fellows when in trouble, sickness or want. Second. To aid in the establishment and maintenance of Homes for the aged and indigent Odd Fellows and their wives, and for the widows of deceased Odd Fellows; and Homes for the care, education and support of orphans of deceased Odd Fellows and of deceased sisters of the Rebekah degree. Third. To cultivate and extend the social and fraternal relations of life among lodges and the families of Odd Fellows. The Rebekah Creed reads: I am a REBEKAH I believe in the Fatherhood of God, the Brotherhood of man and the sisterhood of woman. I believe in the watch-words of our Order-Friendship, Love and Truth. Friendship - is like a golden chain that ties our hearts together Love - is one of our most precious gifts, the more you give, the more you recieve Truth - is the standard that which we value people. It is the foundation of our society. I believe that my main concern should be my God, my family and my friends. Then I should reach out to my community and the world. For in God's eyes we are all brothers and sisters. I AM A REBEKAH! The Lodge was disbanded by June 2012.
