Old friends re­united and new friends made

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Fair­lee, VT

OnMay 13-14 the Grand Mas­ter Ernes­tine Whip­ple and Grand Mar­shal Arnold MacKeage of the Grand Lodge of Que., vis­ited the Grand Lodge Ses­sions at beau­ti­ful Lake Morey Inn in Fair­lee Ver­mont. Grand Mas­ter, VT., Wil­liam Wulff, dec­o­rated Of­fi­cer of many Branches of the Or­der con­ducted a fine meet­ing and all guests were warmly wel­comed. There was a de­li­cious Ban­quet Fri­day evening, at­tended by dig­ni­taries from RI; Mass.; CT.; NH. and NY. There­fore there was lots of greet­ings ex­changed - meet­ing some mem­bers for the first time and oth­ers long-time friends-great hos­pi­tal­ity!

The Re­bekah Assem­bly was very well rep­re­sented with the Pres­i­dent Joy Royea of Knowl­ton along with some of her of­fi­cers. Que­be­cers Ed and Joyce Cop­ping ac­com­pa­nied Thomas Bar­ton, the Deputy Grand Mas­ter from Sher­brooke to the meet­ing, Ed be­ing the chauf­feur.

The cer­e­monies were im­pres­sive and fel­low­ship ev­i­dent ev­ery­where. The grounds are ex­quis­ite and the view of the lake su­perb.

We hope to see many of the same group at Que. Ses­sions May 27-28 at Le Cas­tel, Granby.
