Independent United Order of Mechanics, Friendly Society, North, Central and South America, Islands of the Seas and the Entire Western Hemisphere
District Grand Lodge No 1 of Barbados, Dominica and St Vincent
We do hope that as you view our website, it can answer some of your questions about who we are and what we do, dispelling some of the misconceptions of fraternity that we have grown so accustomed to hearing. One of the aims of the Order is to make good men and woman better. Mechanism is founded on the principles laid down in the volume of the sacred laws, we continue to live by those principles, despite not being a religious organisation and we live by the commandants that Jesus Christ gave us.
Our forefathers first communicated with drawings on the walls of caves, today we use technology as one of the central means in business and leisure. We now communicate in different methods as we continually develop and find new and more innovative ways to get our messages across.
Our Executive Body, located in the United States, led the way for the usage and advancement of modern technology in our individual Districts. Today, my District has taken the mantle and we are proud to join those units with a digital presence in today’s highly technology-based world. We hope that through this medium that we can have a more intimate encounter with you as we open our arms and welcome not just fellow Mechanics but society in general.
The theme of the Order is ‘Members matter most’, you can become one of our future members and yes there is a place for you in our Order. Do enjoy the site and we look forward to hearing from you. The Brotherhood of Man, the Fatherhood of God; May God richly bless you.

It gives me great joy to welcome you to the web page of the District Grand Lodge No 1 of Barbados, Dominica and St Vincent.
For me, the dawning of this page is full of excitement and enthusiasm. Our District continues to evolve and make changes so we remain relevant in how we interact with both members and non-members. One can equate this feeling to a child opening a gift at a special occasion.
