Open Installation, Capitol Lodge No 136, Dec 2, Friday

On December 2, Friday, Capitol Lodge No 136 had an Open Installation. There was a good number of Brethren and relatives of the incoming WM, Bro Arnold Calambacan Sr. We first held a Board of Installed Masters. Then the Brethren  below the rank of WB and the visitors were invited into the Lodge room.
The Installing Master was MWB Steve Kane. In this picture, the Installing Chaplain, RWB Bruce Taylor, leads the prayer.

MWB Steve Kane presents WB Arnold Calambacan the apron, collar and jewel of a WM.

WB Arnold gives his acceptance speech,, in which . he remembered his late father.

Capitol Lodge No 136 is very fortunate and proud to have as its Members the incumbent Grand Master and three (3) Past Grand Masters. They are, from L to R: MWB Steve Kane, 1995/1996; MWB Stuart Allen, 2001/2002; WB Arnold Calambacan Sr; MWB Chibu Uson, Current GM; and MWB Kris Goodmanson, 2010/2011.
Here's a picture of the Grand Lodge Officers in attendance and some of the Lodge Brethren.
