District Church Parade
Our DDGM is a brother from Acadia Lodge in Pugwash, thus our 2014 District Church Parade was held in Pugwash at the St. George's Anglican Church. Despite it being Mother's Day quite a few brothers showed up for the parade, service and luncheon. We had 13 brothers in attendance. We were especially pleased to see a good turnout from Grand Lodge. The Deputy Grand Master, RW Bro. Paul Frank and the Senior Grand Warden, RW Bro. Peter Ponsford made the two hour drive up from Halifax to be with us!
Our Piper for the parade was James Lowerson.
The brethren were greeted at the door of St. George's by the Rev. Bill Cook and his wife, Deacon Catherine Cook and made very welcome. They were very pleased to have us take part in their Holy Communion Sunday morning service.
The morning scripture readings were done by VW Bro. Bill Merriam and our DDGM, the RW Bro. George Anderson.
After the service our DDGM invited the congregation to join us at the Lodge Hall for a light luncheon.
Below are a few pictures of the event.
