Official Visit to Brandon Lodge No 19, October 25, Tuesday

On October 25, Tuesday, 11 of us trekked from Winnipeg to Brandon to attend the Emergent Meeting of Brandon Lodge No 19. It was a beautiful drive in spite of some light rain (thankfully, it was not cold enough to turn the rain into the white stuff) near Brandon.

Here are pictures taken while waiting for the start of the Lodge Meeting.

After the excellent Conferral of the Entered Apprentice Degree on Bro Keith Hancharak, I had the pleasure of presenting the 55-year service award to WB Bart Hawkins.
Here is a picture with the Brethren who accompanied me (all Grand Lodge Officers); WB Vern Schneider, WM of Brandon Lodge No 19; and other Brethren.

Here is a picture of RWB Junn Manalang, Grand Director of Ceremonies, with Bro David Baltzer, new FC (on the left) and Bro Keith Hancharak, new EA (on the right). Looks like being between two pillars or towers.

In this picture, VWB Bert Manalang takes his turn to be in between the two towers.
 I was very happy that WB Glenn Gilos was able to join me on this visit, although he found out very late. He came straight from work.

Here are pictures taken during the Refreshment Hour.

I wonder what DGM RWB Al Hadley is thinking of when this picture was taken.
L to R: VWB Bert Manalang, Grand Standard Bearer; WB Bart Hawkins, 55-year service awardee; and RWB Junn Manalang, Grand Director of Ceremonies

Once again, thanks to VWB Bert Manalang for taking the pictures.
Special thanks to RWB Jeff Chartrand who provided the transportation to and from Brandon.
It was an excellent evening, although it was a very long night.
The drive back to Winnipeg was uneventful.
