Knowl­ton, Rich­mond

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

This has been a very busy time for both branches of the Or­der. In­stal­la­tion of Of­fi­cers takes place in Oc­to­ber. First off al­though was GM Arnold's and Pres­i­dent Ernes­tine's Visit to Maine Ses­sions, Oc­to­ber 16 & 17.

There was a lovely Ban­quet Fri­day night Oc­to­ber 16. Dur­ing this meal sev­eral Main­ers spoke of their Home and sev­eral projects. Satur­day a.m. all visi­tors were wel­comed and as they were en­ter­ing the Meet­ing Room they were es­corted up through an Hon­our Guard to the front of Pres­i­dent; given "the Hon­ours"; then to Sec­re­tary's desk and then seated. All the var­i­ous Ju­ris­dic­tions’ rep­re­sented were given a chance to greet the Pres­i­dent of Maine and ex­change gifts.

There was an Ex­change Ta­ble laden with hand-made ar­ti­cles and other good­ies. We se­lected many ar­ti­cles. A grand time and af­ter say­ing so long time to head home and it was a fine trip. On Oc­to­ber13, 2015 DDP #1 Dorothy Bab­bin and oth­ers went to Rich­mond for a noon ban­quet and then In­stal­la­tion of Of­fi­cers.

On Oc­to­ber 23, 2015 it was a very sad time as many Re­bekahs at­tended to Re­bekah Ser­vice for Sis­ter Donna Luce in Cowansville, in­clud­ing the Grand Mas­ter Arnold MacKeage and Pres­i­dent Ernes­tine.

On Oct.24 , A very emo­tional time for this Ju­ris­dic­tion as we at­tended the Re­bekah and Fu­neral Ser­vice in Brome, for Sis­ter Dorothy Jones Pre­mont a Past Pres­i­dent and very de­voted mem­ber of Col­fax #29.

Af­ter the fu­neral and com­mit­tal a huge buf­fet was set out at the Brome Cen­tre and full house here as well. She is sorely missed by all who knew her.

On Oc­to­ber, 19, in Ayer's Cliff, Alexan­dra # 59 Of­fi­cers were in­stalled by DDGM Sis­ter Bar­bara Smith. Bar­bara re­ceived her Lapel Pin for 15 yrs. be­long­ing to the Odd Fel­lows.

On Oc­to­ber, 20, in Danville, Of­fi­cers of Golden Rule # 13, IOOF; were in­stalled by DDGM Bar­bara Smith and Staff. All present en­joyed a de­li­cious lunch af­ter the meet­ing and met some new friends.
