This was an opportunity for Noble Stephen Shirk to try out his fancy new digital Canon Camera with bluetooth, etc.  Had to delete many pictures that were not so good however still managed to find some good photo opportunities.  Congratulations to Illustrious Sir Noble Jed Handy on being installed as our newest Potentate and the best to our outgoing, now Past Potentate, Illustrious Sir Noble Thomas Woodrow.  Also to be congratulated was the election and installation of our newest Oriental Guide Noble Joe Johnson who comes from both the Oshawa and Belleville Shrine Clubs.  Now we have to find a new 1st Vice President for Belleville.  The weather was great and the ceremony was again memorable.
