|Bro. William Fulton Memorial Junior LOL 151|
|Brother William Fulton formed this Junior Lodge in 1956 with the intentions of keeping the young boys off the streets and out of trouble and also to encourage them in the religious teachings of the Orange Order. The lodge purchased its first banner which was painted by Bob Molloy of Clones, Co. Monaghan and was unfurled by Miss Noreen Cooper in 1958.
When this lodge was originally formed it was known as Inniskilling Junior Lodge, after the two famous regiments raised in Enniskillen during the Williamite Wars in 1689, but it was decided for their 25th Anniversary to rename the lodge in the memory of Bro. William Fulton, who died in 1973, as a lasting memory to his dedication and commitment to this Junior Lodge. An anniversary and dedication service parade was organised on 25th April 1981, when over 1200 Orange brethren and 30 bands took part in Enniskillen.
In 1976, Bro. Noel McIlfatrick took over as Superintendent from Bro. Johnston who had been Superintendent after Bro. Fulton died in 1973. After the Enniskillen Bomb a Bannerette was bought and dedicated in the memory of those who were killed on the Remembrance Poppy Day Massacre in November 1987.
The present members of the lodge are from Enniskillen, Ballinamallard, Tempo etc.. The lodge takes part in a few parades each year but we arrange activities each month including football, darts, ice-skating, cross-country including trip to Stormont Parliament Buildings and the site of the Battle of the Boyne.
In 2006, the lodge celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The Lodge would like to thank all those who supported them over the last 50 years.
