Interprovincial Day 2016


Masonic Temple in Charlottetown, PEI was the

location of this year’s 3rd Annual Interprovincial

Lodge Day. The weather turned out to give us a

beautiful sunny day with a few clouds and cool fall

temperatures. The best weather yet for these

gatherings. The Masonic Temple was filled to

capacity with 111 brothers attending from the

provinces of PEI, NB and NS. As well, we were

very pleased to have one visitor from the province

of British Columbia!

The lodge officers for the day were made up of

Past Grand Masters of PEI. The WM was MW

Bro. Donald Leary. He opened the lodge on the

3rd Degree and then lowered it to the 1st Degree

so any Entered Apprentices and Fellowcraft who

wished could join us for the afternoon.
