Our November meeting was a very enjoyable evening. My thanks to V.W. Bro Giroldi for his always interesting masonic education, and to Bro. Beasley for telling us about your trip to Texas and sharing the masonic history with us. With the festive season approaching fast, we, as Masons, must stop and remember the reason for the season. Let us remember those less fortunate than us in your prayers and in your charities. At our December 19th Meeting it would be especially nice if we could all bring some non-perishable foods for our local Food Bank. May the joy of the season be with you all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Fraternally yours, A.E. Fyfe, WM
WM Albert will NOT be available on Friday, November 11th, to represent the Lodge and lay the wreath at the Remembrance Day Service. He is asking if there is a Brother who might be available to do this?
From RT. W. Bro. Murray, W.M. Elect for 2015: Message to V.W. Bro. Cowan: The Officers and members of our Lodge thank you for your outstanding leadership over the past two years serving as our Worshipful Master. You have been and will continue to be an inspiration to the Officers who have served under you. Your great administrative ability has been noticed and certainly appreciated.

I would like to again congratulate our officers and the degree team on
the excellent work they did last month in putting on the MM Degree. I
would also like to congratulate our newest Master Mason, Bro. Zhang on
his dedication to the work and the excellent manner in which he proved
up in the Fellow Craft degree.
Thank you to all of the brethren who travelled to Mizpah
Lodge for their third degree. We had twelve of our members in
attendance which was fantastic! Thank you to WBro Alvis for filling in
for me in the east. I enjoyed the sun and warmth of Puerto Vallarta and
was hoping to bring some back with me but to no avail.
would also like to thank WBro. Fyfe for serving as JW for the past three
months. We all wish him the best of health and know we can continue to
count on his regular attendance and support. Thank you to WBro Dunlop
and VWBro Giroldi for volunteering to assume the JW’s chair – I greatly
appreciate your support and know the lodge will continue to be well
looked after during times of refreshment and fellowship. Lastly I want
to thank RWBro. Nick Richardson, WBro. Bob Burns and Bro. Cordell Dyck
for volunteering to bring refreshments to our May meeting.
encourage all of you to come out this month to support your officers and
the Lodge in spreading the cement that unites us into one sacred
Society of Friends and Brothers. We look forward to having a large turn
out for fellowship amongst our Brethren.
April will be a very busy month. Our regular meeting will be held on
Easter Monday April 21st and I would like to thank W Bro Alvis for
agreeing to fill in for me as Worshipful Master as I will be away on
It is a coincidence that the celebration of Easter is
about our Lord’s promise of resurrection and rebirth and we will again
be putting on the M.M. degree in April
at an emergent meeting on Tuesday April 8th. Also we will also be
traveling to Mizpah Lodge on April 15th to witness a MM degree in the
Canadian rite performed by York Rite College. We will car-pool to
Medicine Hat and leave from Brooks Lodge at 6:00PM on April 15th.
I encourage each of you to reflect on the teachings and symbolism found
in the MM degree and come out to welcome our newest brother as we raise
him to the sublime degree of a Master Mason at our emergent meeting and
also join us as we travel to Medicine Hat for a unique educational
experience in the Canadian Rite.
Lodge officers and members of
the degree team are reminded that we will be holding a practice on
Sunday, April 6th at 1 PM in preparation for the MM degree.
Brethren did you know that a lodge is opened by the Worshipful Master in
"due form" which means according to ancient usages, customs, laws and
ritual of the Grand Lodge. That a Grand Lodge is opened by the Grand
Master in "ample form" meaning he has the power and authority to deviate
from common ritual to save time. At our last meeting the Grand Master
exercised his right of “ample form” during the closing. He declared the
Lodge closed with one stroke of the gavel.
