MWB Raymond and Lady Barb were very gracious hosts.
The Guests were piped in as they paraded into the Lodge Room.
We had MWB Richard Fletcher, PGM of the Grand Lodge of Vermont and Past Executive Secretary of the Masonic Service Association of North America, as the Guest Speaker at the Grand Master's Banquet on Friday.
It was great to witness on Thursday the Installation of MWB Garry Dowling as the 75th Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario. MWB Garry was born and raised in Winnipeg and got his Commerce Degree from the University of Manitoba. I wish him all the best during this two-year term in the Grand East. I look forward to serve with him in the 2012 All-Canada Conference in Winnipeg, he as President and I as Vice-President.
It was already great to meet a good number of Filipino-Canadian Brethren in Toronto. One of them is the RWB Eugene Palacol, who just completed his term as the DDGM of his District. I look forward to meeting more of the Filipino-Canadian Brethren at the dinner on Saturday hosted by the Filipino-Canadian Cabletow Service Club. There will be a separate blog about the dinner.
