Thanksgiving Assembly of Polson School, October 6

On October 6, Thursday, we attended the Thanksgiving Assembly of Polson School, which is the first beneficiary of the Milk Program of Capitol Lodge No 136. Other Grand Lodge Officers, Brethren from other Lodges, including Beaver Ionic Lodge No 136 and Ancient Landmark Lodge No 3, and representatives from the River East Transcona School Board, the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg, were present.

Polson School Principal Ian Grant gave us a tour of the school. This is the room where the milk dispensing machine is located.

The milk dispensing machine was opened to show the two (2) bags of milk inside.

This is the School library.
