About us


Why we are called the 'Hearts of Oak' Lodge

The phrase 'heart of oak' denotes a person with a strong, courageous nature, especially a brave and loyal sailor, and a courageous or valorous spirit. Its literal meaning is the heartwood of the oak. The heartwood is the dense, inner part of the wood of a tree trunk, yielding the hardest timber.
