History
GAVEL WAS USED BY THE PRESIDENT TO BRING MEETINGS TO ORDER AND "TO STOP THE GOSSIPING". RIBBONS DECORATING THE GAVEL WERE THE LODGE'S COLOURS. DONOR CAME INTO POSSESSION OF THE ARTIFACT(S) AS THE LAST PRESIDENT OF THE CPR LADIES LODGE. SINCE THERE WERE NO NEW MEMBERS AND FIVE MEMBERS WERE NEEDED TO HAVE A MEETING, THE LODGE AMALGAMATED WITH MEDICINE HAT. THE PAST SECRETARY MOVED TO A NURSING HOME AND THE DONOR BECAME BOTH PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY. THE AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION, FORMERLY THE LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729 WAS A CHAPTER OF THE LADIES TRAINMEN. THE LADIES AUXILIARY WAS ORGANIZED INFORMALLY BY SOPHIA J. GRANGER SHORTLY AFTER THE FORMATION OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN (BRT) ON 16 SEPTEMBER 1886 IN FORT GRATIOT, MICHIGAN. THE LADIES AUXILIARY WAS FORMALLY RECOGNIZED AT THE BRT CONVENTION IN OCTOBER 1888, AND THE FIRST CHARTER WAS GRANTED TO THE GRAND LODGE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN AT FORT GRATIOT ON 23 JANUARY 1889. THE AIMS OF THE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN ARE HERE QUOTED FROM THE CONSTITUTION AND GENERAL RULES REVISED TO 1951. "TO UNITE THE FAMILIES OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN; TO PROMOTE THEIR WELFARE SOCIALLY, MORALLY AND INTELLECTUALLY, AND TO ENCOURAGE THEM IN ALL THINGS PERTAINING TO THE GOOD OF THE BROTHERHOOD, THE AUXILIARY HAS BEEN ORGANIZED. CONVINCED THAT IT IS FOR THE GOOD OF THE BROTHERHOOD IN GENERAL, AND FOR OUR OWN WELFARE, THAT A MUTUAL GOOD FEELING SHOULD, AT ALL TIMES, EXIST BETWEEN BOTH ORGANIZATIONS, IT SHALL BE OUR CONSTANT AIM AND ENDEAVOR TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN THE SAME. SUCH ARE THE AIMS AND INTENTIONS OF THE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN." ON 10 MARCH 1970 THE BRT MERGED WITH THREE OTHER UNIONS TO BECOME THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION, AND THE NAME OF THE AUXILIARY WAS CHANGED TO LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION. THE ORGANIZATION CONTINUES TO EXIST AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING. FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION, WAS FORMED AT MEETING HELD IN THE MOOSE HALL IN LETHBRIDGE ON 3 FEBRUARY 1922 AS FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN, THE 14 CHARTER MEMBERS OF THE LODGE WERE: MARY E.

WRAY PROPOSED THE NAME "FRIENDSHIP" FOR THE LODGE, WHICH WAS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY. A LIST OF PRINCIPAL OFFICERS OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, AS WELL AS ALL MEMBERS WHO JOINED FROM 1922 TO 1989 THAT IS AVAILABLE IN THE LODGE HISTORY. THE AIMS OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE WERE THE SAME AS THOSE OF THE PARENT ORGANIZATION.
