The weekend before Christmas was specially busy. On Dec 17, Saturday, Fil-Can Cabletow Lodge No 189 conferred the EA Degree at a Regular Meeting in the morning and held its 5th Annual Lodge Christmas Party in the evening.
On Dec 18, Sunday, in the afternoon, the Grand Lodge hosted a Masonic Family Christmas Reception at the Manitoba Masonic Centre (MMC). The very beautiful and colorful decorations were done by Debbie Clairmont and Marilynn Kowalchuk, Past Queens of Sphinx Temple No 116, Daughters of the Nile.
Beautiful entertainment piano music was provided by Sister Bernice Blakeman of the Order of Eastern Star.
