2022 SPRING CEREMONIAL ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO, FRIDAY EVENTS

On Friday we arrived for the fist Rameses Spring Ceremonial since the shutdown of all Masonic meetings and events during 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. This day was memorable for our Club as we would learn how successful the St. Catharine’s Spring Ceremonial was to be. On this Friday there was registration during the day with a social in the evening. Our planning committee for the 2023 Ceremonial, which will be held in Belleville, was busy at our information table in the Flea Market area, supplying every interested Noble or Lady with maps, area brochures and responding to their questions.

23 FEBRUARY 2022 REUNION OF NOBLES AND THEIR LADIES AT THE BELLEVILLE AND DISTRICT SHRINE CLUB.

On Wednesday evening 43 Nobles and Ladies were in attendance at our second dinner since the beginning of the COVID pandemic restrictions in March of 2020, the first for our Potentate. Present was our Potentate Illustrious Sir Noble Don Campbell and two of his Divan members Chief Rabban Joe Johnson with his Lady Joyce and High Priest and Prophet John Neil with his Lady Peggy. It was also great seeing many members of the Trent Valley Shrine Club in attendance as well as a representation from the Oshawa and Kingston Shrine Clubs. Everyone did their best to follow the rules for masking and distancing. Hopefully we can continue meet in our clubhouse to celebrate friendships and plan for the future.
