Official Opening In Knowlton
BrianGagnon, Noble Grand of Knowlton #28, opened their regular meeting, “in form”. He welcomed everyone and hoped all had enjoyed the delicious food set out for all to enjoy, and we did! District Deputy Grand Master #10, Lynn Jones then took over this District Meeting. All dignitaries were introduced and greeted. Lynn had researched and found an Original Copy of Dedication of Halls and modified it to suit this purpose. It was most Impressive! Knowlton had lost their Hall, and most of its contents to a devastating fire. They purchased this property that happens to be alongside the original site and renovations are on-going. They have been holding events and welcome other organizations to benefit from this facility. (Quebec Past Officers held a fund-raiser a short time ago. Many thanks to Knowlton Lodge!!) Unity # 8 presented an Antique Bible, in excellent condition, to Knowlton. Other lodges from this Jurisdiction have made donations of money, furniture, and Regalia, to assist this lodge. Lynn received a beautiful Bouquet of flowers and congratulated for all her hard work and dedication. We all wish Knowlton the very best and thank this lodge for its support to all organizations, and causes. CONGRATULATIONS and continued success! From all of us!
