We ended just before the summer break with a well-attended and great Heritage Night. All enjoyed the Pipe Band, Address to the Haggis by W. Bro. Frank McKay and the talk on Rosslyn Chapel by R.W. Bro. David J Neave plus Ashley Tidy playing the piano. Thanks to R. W. Bro Bruce N Palanik for piping in the visitors and the Head Table. It was a wonderful night and will be well remembered by those who came out to enjoy another great Caledonia event.
Once again it was good to have many Brethren join us for the Caledonia dinner at the Irish Embassy pub before visiting the Grand Lodge functions at the Royal York.
The lodge was well represented at the district meeting on the Wednesday at Grand Lodge where R. W. Bro. Dean M. Bergerson was elected our DDGM for the year 2015-2016 who then announced W. Bro, Greg J King, past master of Canada Lodge, as the District Secretary.
M.W. Bro. John C. Green began his new office as our Grand Master and one of his early duties was announcing those Brethren to be appointed to a Grand Lodge office. All of us at Caledonia Lodge should be very proud and pleased that Very Worshipful Bro. Bryan Pyper has been appointed a Grand Steward.
We are planning a reception and presentation for Bryan and his family on Saturday September 19th to celebrate his appointment. Be sure to highlight this date in your calendar, so you can join the brethren in recognizing our newest Grand Lodge officer. I look forward to welcoming you, your ladies and guests to what promises to be a wonderful event.
W. Bro. Alex Wilson, Worshipful Master
