Last month we held our Grand Lodge Appreciation night which had a great turnout of Grand Lodge officers including the Deputy Grand Master, District Deputy Grand Masters from
Ottawa District 1 and 2 and a large number of grand lodge officers, visitors and Acacia lodge members.
During our meeting the Decons carried a message from the worshipful master and retrieved a package containing the apron and past master jewel worn by W.Bro. Proudman, who served as the Worshipful Master of Acacia in 1949-1950. W.Bro. Lillico presented some personal and Masonic history about W. Bro. Proudman along with a book containing many biographies ofAcacia Lodge Members which really delivered the message of how important it is to submit or update your biographies.
Our guest speaker was Deputy Grand Master R.W. Bro. David J Cameron who delivered a speech talking about possible directions that masonry may take in the future which I found
brought forward some excellent ideas and thought.
This month on our regular meeting we will be holding a rusty mason night. W. Bro. Sam Roberts will help sharpen our tools. I am sure we will all learn something we did not previously know. I also hope that many Acacia Lodge members can
make it out and if you have missed a few meetings, months or years I hope this night will inspire you to attend lodge and re-ignite the flame that brought you into masonry.
I look forward to seeing you in lodge.
