Welcome to Fall 2017. At our October meeting we will install our Master Elect Bro. Torey Williams. I'm sure Torey is as excited to progress to the Masters Chair. I also am please to be progressing the Immediate Past Masters chair.
Worshipful Master 2015/2017
It's that time of the year when we have our Strawberry Social inviting our significant others and friends to join us for some fun. This year we are joining forces with York Lodge and having a joint event.
It should be a great time. I hope to see you there.
Plans have begun to hold a Scots Night in late February. We have selected this day for our meeting and event because it will not conflict with the Family Day long weekend. Lodge will open in the afternoon followed by the celebration. The plan is to have tickets ready soon and posters will be advertising the event around the district lodge buildings early in the new year. The event will be open to family and friends. Please contact the senior officers to get tickets.
Caledonia Lodge received its Charter in October 1926, as a Lodge of peculiarly Scottish sympathies and affiliations, with 78 chartered Members and 61 new Candidates in the following year – many of whom were WW1 veterans, there has therefore been a Caledonia tradition of holding a Remembrance Service at our regular meeting in November. On this, our 90th year, we will have a very special speaker from the Veterans’ Memory Project of Historica Canada – Jock Williams - a Western University graduate and a 35 year post war military veteran. He has been a tank commander, fighter pilot (21 years), artillery officer and a helicopter pilot. He is an avid student of military history and the CBC radio and television aviation expert. He has been published in the Globe and Mail and Toronto Sun regarding aviation matters. He will speak on the military’s contribution to our Canadian history.
Visitors will be received after the Lodge is closed at 8pm when the Remembrance Service will begin. After the service, the speaker’s presentation will be in the banquet room.
The installation will be short since W. Bro. Mark Wilson has been elected for a second term we will also be celebrating the appointment of V.W. Bro. Alex Wilson to Grand Senior Deacon for 2016/2017 masonic year.
