Cumberland Annual District Meeting
On Saturday, Nov. 9 the Masons of Cumberland District were summoned to their Annual District Meeting by the presiding DDGM, RW Bro. George Anderson. The meeting was held in Wallace although the DDGM's home lodge is Acadia Lodge #13 in Pugwash. This was necessary as Pugwash was not able to hold a meal for the gathered brethren.
The ladies of Wallace provided a delicious luncheon for the Masons at 12 noon. The meeting got underway at 1pm. The brothers from Acadia Lodge #13 opened the lodge with acting WM, Bro. Robert Carter in the East. Once opened the DDGM was escorted into the lodge with all due ceremony and accepted the gavel from Bro. Carter.
The DDGM was very pleased to see that 33 of the brothers of the Cumberland lodges had made the effort to attend this annual meeting.

Amherst Masonic Society Fall Yard Sale
This year we tried a Fall Yard Sale to raise money to help keep our lodge building open. Though late in the year, a fair number of customers did drop by to see the thousands of items we had for sale. A lot of work went into getting this Fall Sale ready as can be seen by the way things were laid out all over the lodge room, entrance rooms and hall downstairs. We had a large Christmas section in the outer room, a huge book section in the entrance and a colossal hodgepodge of smaller items of every description in the main lodge.
