Don Clifton's history of JSA Lodge


Around 1986 Don Clifton then Secretary of JSA lodge took it upon himself to extract from the minutes and records a history that would be available in written form.  If any of you lucky enough to have seen this spiral bound book and leafed through its history, you can see this labor of love.  to share it with as many people we can fine, I have converted it into Adobe Acrobat and included it here for all to enjoy.  We obviously need someone to pick up this torch  as this record concludes December 27th 1989 and we need to bring it up to date.  Volunteers?


It is a little known fact that Don Clifton is a living breathing history textbook.  He retired from Hughes printing in 1984 and has become a good friend to me over the years I have been involved in the Lodge.  He has collected and edited a great history and little known facts about the area and these can be found here
