The concept of the Widows Sons Masonic Motorcycle Association was conceived by W.Bro. Carl Davenport in Chicago in 2000. He laid the foundation for what would become an international organization with over a thousand members in North America and Europe today. Well over 30 Master Masons in Alberta who ride a variety of bikes are proud to ride and do charity work together.
At the Edmonton motorcycle show in January 2006 a group of Masons came together for the first time to discuss the first chapter of the Widows Sons in Canada. On March 10, 2006 the Northern Jurisdiction issued a charter for Alberta and since then other Canadian Grand Chapters have been started in Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba.
The charity the Widows Sons are involved in here in Alberta consists primarily of donating time to society. Over the last two years we have contributed time and labour to the iHuman Youth Society, the Salvation Army and the Blood Bank and this summer a young girl named Lydia will receive much needed medical equipment with the support of the Widows Sons.
We have accomplished a lot in our first two years and we continue to make great plans for the future, both in Lodge and on the road. For more information visit our website at www.widowssons.ca or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
