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.
