Where did the summer go? Doesn't see all that long ago when we enjoyed another great Strawberry Night at York Temple in the company of our ladies and special guests. I do hope however, that each and every one of you had a wonderful summer and shared that time with those you love and cherish.
We should all extend heartiest congratulations to R.W.Bro. Peter Sialtsis as our new DDGM for Toronto East District and look forward to visiting with him on his travels throughout his tenure.
I am pleased to advise that our inaugural Grand Lodge dinner at the Irish Embassy proved to be a great idea, and one that I look forward to be an annual event. Having social events such as this proves that we have a strong basis upon which to rebuild our Lodge's presence.
To reinforce the image of our unity, as a group we entered the Royal York wearing our Caledonia Lodge shirts. I can tell you, it made me feel proud to march into that assembly in the company of those Bretheren; we did look sharp in those shirts.
I look forward to welcoming you into Lodge on September 15 when we elect next year's Officers.
Our emergent meeting on October 6 will be a step-up night for those new Officers, as well as seeing Bros. Nathon Kozuska and Patrick O'Meara move ahead as F.C.s so be sure to be in attendance to support these Bretheren.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
W.Bro. Ian Kennedy, Worshipful Master
