First De­gree mem­bers of Odd fel­lows Con­grat­u­lated with all good wishes at Kin­n­ears Mills Hall

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

On Novem­ber 11th , some mem­bers from Dis­trict #5 trav­elled to Kin­n­ears Mills to as­sist with the mem­bers who were ready to re­ceive the First De­gree of Odd Fel­low­ship be­ing the De­gree of Friend­ship, the First De­gree in this branch. There are two more de­grees in this branch. Of­fi­cers were as­signed var­i­ous posts and new mem­bers were ex­am­ined as to what they had learned.

Then we were ready to pro­ceed with the Cer­e­mony. It was in­deed a plea­sure to be a part of this.

Af­ter the Cer­e­mony the new mem­bers were con­grat­u­lated and wel­comed by all.

"The Greet­ings' from the heads of the Or­der were ex­tended and Ernes­tine and Arnold both said they were pleased to be a part of this and sure the new mem­bers would en­joy the fel­low­ship within the or­der and for sure they will play an ac­tive part. We wish the whole Ju­ris­dic­tion would be for­tu­nate enough to at­tract new mem­bers. Our work is needed more than ever as our ideals are to «visit the sick; re­lieve the dis­tressed; Fu­neral Cer­e­mony for lost mem­bers-help with ed­u­ca­tion of youth; and com­fort the be­reaved". Our mem­bers are all Sis­ters and Brothers fra­ter­nally, many of us much closer than fam­ily! We all en­joyed a lovely lunch af­ter the meet­ing.
