The Grand Master of Saskatchewan, MW Bro Dave Abel, W Bro Myles Fuchs, and the Brethren of Moosomin Lodge No. 7 are proud to host the annual Hands Across the Border fraternal visit with MW Bro Ron Church and his party from Manitoba on Saturday November 7, 2015 in Moosomin, SK.
The meeting will be held at the Lodge Temple situated at 713 Carlton St, Moosomin, SK. The Lodge will be Tyled at 2:00 PM and will conclude by 3:30 PM. Entered Apprentices & Fellow Craft Brethren are encouraged to attend.
Our ladies are most welcome to attend with us for a Table Lodge later in the day. In the meantime they may visit at a complimentary room at either the Motel 6 or the Royal Canadian Legion on Main Street. Or, it is on very good authority that there is excellent shopping in a couple of ladies clothing stores on Main Street. A short distance down the street they can enjoy excellent pastries and coffee at the Witches Brew café.
A social hour will follow the meeting with a no host bar for both the Brethren and their Ladies between 4:30 PM and 5:30 PM at the Royal Canadian Legion.
A table lodge is a dinner at which there are a number of toasts, all of which are performed under the watchful eye and direction of a Master of Ceremonies. There is a specific manner in which the toasts are performed, mostly with a great deal of laughter, jocularity and consumption of spirituous proof beverages, hence the suggestion for accommodations as noted below! Our Ladies have taken part in the past and joined in the fun and we hope that many will attend this evening of fraternal socialization, renewing old or making new friendships.
Dinner for the table lodge is $30.00 per person with complimentary wine included for the toasts. Please make payments payable to Moosomin Lodge No. 7 and send to:
Moosomin Lodge No. 7
