Canadian Masons
Visit Southwestern Pennsylvania

On Friday, Oct. 17, an exchange program two years in the making came to fruition as Canadian brothers and their wives were greeted at a Masons' Night Out dinner at the Oakhurst Tearoom in Somerset, Pa., hosted by members of King Solomon's Lodge No. 346, Connellsville, Pa.

Canadian brethren visit historic Fort Ligonier.

On Saturday, members of King Solomon's Lodge served breakfast at the new Pleasant Valley Masonic Center in Connellsville. Following a guided tour of historic Fort Ligonier and a visit to Autumnfest at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, several of the Canadian members found time to play a round of golf hosted by Rodney E. Boyce, District Deputy Grand Master of the 30th District. Bro. Paul Truxel, III, P.M., prepared a fellowship dinner served in the lodge social room. Afterward, while the ladies were escorted to nearby Scottdale, Pa., for a performance of "Arsenic and Old Lace" at the Geyer Performing Arts Center, a degree team composed of members from various lodges in the St. Lawrence and Frontenac Districts of the Grand Lodge A.F.& A.M. of Canada in the province of Ontario, exemplified a Master Mason's Degree at an extra meeting of King Solomon's Lodge.

The evening concluded with dessert and fraternal fellowship.

Plans are in preparation for a visit of a degree team from King Solomon's Lodge to the Canadian lodges in October 2009.
