With the beginning of March brings longer days
and hopefully warmer weather as we get ready for
spring. This winter brought cold temperatures and
lots of snow to Ottawa. I hope you and your
families were able to get outside and enjoy some
Our February meeting was a memorable night.
Sitting in the East I can tell you nothing is more
pleasing than seeing a full Lodge room. Our
meeting began by Acacia Lodge welcoming
Members of Sidney Albert Luke Lodge who
arrived to present the traveling gavel. They were
followed by the Shrine Degree Team who attended
and Raised a worthy brother to the Degree of a
Master Mason. I also had the honour of presenting
a 25 year pin to W.Bro. Uhrig, recognizing his
years of service to the Craft.
Our March meeting will include three short pieces
of Masonic Education which I hope will inspire
and expand our understanding and appreciation of
the history of our Fraternity.
March also brings Acacia Lodge’s turn to present
the Traveling Gavel. I hope your cable tow will
allow you to join me on March 21st at Mississippi
Lodge for this presentation.
I have been very pleased to see many new and old
faces at our meetings this year and I encourage you
to join us in Lodge even if you haven’t been able
to make it out for a while and feel a little rusty. I
believe one of the most important parts of being a
Mason is attending Lodge. Should you require
transportation please contact myself or the
secretary and we can help make arrangements.
