Lo­cal Lodge hap­pen­ings

Sherbrooke Record - - CLASSIFIED -

Since March 2018, we have been a busy group,with vis­its from our Grand Master Sis. Joyce Copping. On March 20,Vic­to­ria Lodge #16, of Coat­i­cook, Grand Master of Grand Lodge of Que­bec - Sis. Joyce Copping, paid us a visit.

We had lunch prior to our reg­u­lar meet­ing with James Mackay, No­ble Grand, wel­com­ing our mem­bers and Spe­cial guests. Casey Vriensendorp, Chap­lain said “Grace”, and all picked out their pizza and trim­mings.

We had a spe­cial cake for our Grand Master and she got to cut the first piece. She was happy to re­ceive a dec­o­ra­tion of a steam-train ash­tray. It was iden­ti­cal to one her dad had many years ago!

Af­ter lunch NG Jim called the meet­ing to or­der. We had many things to take care of as we were in re­cess Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Spe­cial guests were pre­sented, be­ing Grand Rep Ed Copping; District Deputy Grand Master, #5, Fred Mosher; and then our Grand Master, Joyce Copping. All who had some­thing to say did so just be­fore our Grand Master Sis­ter Joyce. She ex­pressed her plea­sure to be here and for all cour­te­sies to her and her Of­fi­cers. She ex­tended “Greet­ings” from Grand Lodge; her of­fi­cers and her own per­sonal ones.

She also ex­plained her project, Men­tal Health Care Unit of Ho­tel Dieu; and its con­cerns.

Af­ter the meet­ing all were thanked for com­ing and wished “a safe trip home.”
