Con­sol­i­da­tion of Water­loo

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Knowl­ton

OnSept.11/14 sev­eral Odd Fel­lows were wit­ness to a Con­sol­i­da­tion Cer­e­mony where mem­bers of Water­loo # 27 Lodge joined Knowl­ton # 28. Grand Master Ed Cop­ping, his Mar­shal, Joyce Cop­ping, Deputy Grand Master, Arnold Mackeage act­ing as Chap­lain, and Greg Bar­ton Grand War­den, act­ing as Vice Grand and Grand Sec­re­tary, Wil­helm Lo­ken, put on a very Im­pres­sive cer­e­mony-nowa­days very rare. This, though sad when a lodge gives up its Char­ter, may get to be more common than we like!! Mem­bers who are get­ting too old to at­tend, and lack of younger peo­ple in­ter­ested in com­mit­ting to this or­der, are caus­ing our lodges to close their doors. The ladies branch, the Re­bekahs, are in the same boat!! We all wish those lodges who are forced to give up or con­sol­i­date or join other lodges will find con­tent­ment in their new space and har­mony will con­tinue and our good works con­tin­ued.
