Cornerstone Laying Ceremony at Rideau-Minden Lodge

It was a cool and windy day in Seelys Bay as the Grand Master MW Bro John C Green officiated at this Cornerstone dedication.  Among other notables, Brethren from as far as London were in attendance as well as all points in between.  Ottawa Districts 1 & 2 were very well represented with the DDGMs from each District, current Grand Stewards, the Grand Jr Deacon and of course the Deputy Grand Master and the Grand Senior Warden.  Sydney Albert Luke had 3 members out as well as Temple Lodge with 2 members.  All in all it was a great time and I had the opportunity to connect with many traveling companions and brethren from Southern and Western Ontario that I don't see as often as I would like.  At the conclusion of the Ceremony we met in the Lodge basement for refreshment before heading our separate ways.  Many of the Brethren assembled headed for the Grand Master's Reception in Kingston however, I along with VWB Graham Jameson and W Bro Trevor Hemmerling returned to Ottawa to attend the Dogs of 2000 Charity Table Lodge.
