OnErnestine Whipple Warden R A of Que.
Oct.7 a Joint Installation of Alexandra #59 Odd Fellows of Ayer’s Cliff, and of Victoria #16, of Coaticook, was held.
This meeting was held at the Odd Fellow Hall in Coaticook. Arnold MacKeage, due to absence of regular Noble Grand Casey Vriesendorp whose wife Alice is ill, opened the Meeting “in form”.
All members and guests were welcomed. Under New Business the in-coming officers were installed.
Our own District Deputy Grand Master #5, Sister Dorothy Babbin, and her Installing Staff did a good job as it was made difficult by the absence of some members and also some from the Installing Team! Sister Dorothy, her first time as DDGM, did a great job and we are very proud of her. She is one of our most devoted and hardworking members. Treasurer Noel Roy was absent due to very recent surgery and we wish him a speedy recovery and hope he is soon back in lodge. Sister Barbara Smith was also under the weather and would have been on the Installing Team-we wish her well.!! Alice Boomhower is also sick, get well soon, she is our Inside Guardian. All Officers present except our DDGM (who will also have an Office in her lodge as well as in Alexandra #59) were installed.
Following the Ceremony we all enjoyed Tim Horton goodies with tea/coffee and GOOD fellowship. Many thanks to Dot and all who came to assist in the ceremonies! DDG and District Deputy Grand and station.
