OnMay 3, 2012, the Pres­i­dent of the Re­bekah Assem­bly of Que­bec made her Of­fi­cial Visit to Col­fax Re­bekah Lodge in Knowl­ton.

About 23 mem­bers showed up and a fine meet­ing was con­ducted by NG Katie Jones. She opened meet­ing “in form” and then pro­ceeded to wel­come ev­ery­one hop­ing for a good ses­sion and a safe trip home.
