were on hand to warmly greet each one and your War­den R A of Que.

choice of punch was of­fered. After the usual hand­shakes and wel­come we were in­vited to sit and be ready to eat. The ladies and gen­tle­man were ea­ger to serve tea or cof­fee and after “Grace” the guests went to get their choice of foods-all tempt­ing and de­li­cious. Dis­trict Deputy #15 Ru­fus Jamieson asked for the toast to the Queen and Canada, and the Or­der.

Head Ta­ble guests were Grand Master Ed with his wife Joyce who is his Mar­shal, Arnold MacKeage, Deputy Grand Master, with his es­cort Ernes­tine Whipple, who is also Vi­cePres­i­dent of the Re­bekah Assem­bly, Dis­trict Deputy Grand Master #15Ru­fus Jamieson, and James Allen, Grand Lodge Mu­si­cian and Noble Grand of host Lodge. All were in­tro­duced and asked for any com­ments to which all ex­pressed their plea­sure to be here and to en­joy the usual ex­cel­lent food and fel­low­ship. Ed ex­tended “the Greet­ings” from GL. and Ernes­tine ex­tended “The Greet­ings” from the Re­bekah Assem­bly.

After stuff­ing our­selves we were in­vited to at­tend the Meet­ing down­stairs where all guests were of­fi­cially wel­comed. James opened the meet­ing in “form” and asked the Con­duc­tor to present Ru­fus Jamieson DDGM to con­duct the meet­ing. He did a fine job and dis­cus­sions per­tain­ing to the Or­der were held.

All dig­ni­taries were asked for a few “words of wis­dom” and thanked for com­ing.

Many sen­ti­ments were given with all the best for Merry Christ­mas and a Great New Year. The meet­ing closed “in form” and after chat­ting awhile we headed back home. Ev­ery­one thanked the lodge for all cour­te­sies and all the hos­pi­tal­ity.

Any­one who has at­tended any func­tion for th­ese lodges knows the won­der­ful re­cep­tion they re­ceive and are truly blessed.
