Official Visit to Capitol Lodge No 136, January 6, 2012

On January 6, 2012, Friday, I had my Official Visit to Capitol Lodge No 136. It was the first Lodge Meeting to be presided by newly Installed WM Arnold Calambacan Sr.
This picture with MWB Stuart Allen was taken during the Refreshment which was called to bring in some special visitors.

Conversing with the Grand Organist, VWB Wayne Hadfield.

How many Freemasons does it take to pick up someone's marbles?
Actually, the ballot box fell and the white balls and black cubes spilled out.

 The Lodge reconvened but was kept at Refreshment.

The repast was excellent and the fellowship was very warm during the Refreshment Hour.
It snowed the whole day and the driving conditions were not ideal but the evening at Lodge was excellent.
