MESSAGE FROM THE EAST

Brethren,

November was a busy month. W. Bro. Stephen Monaghan, Bro. Yuri Dimagiba, Bro. Craig Wilson and I attended the Town of Whitby's Remembrance Day Ceremony where we laid wreaths on behalf of David T. Campbell Lodge and Composite Lodge.
Bro. John Hamilton was raised to the S.D. of a M.M. in fine form. His memory work was flawless; he is a credit to himself and Durham Lodge No. 66.

The Craft Beer Tasting Night that was organized by Bro. Yuri Dimagiba and Bro. Corey Hatt was incredible! The level of support received by the Officers and their wives really made this an enjoyable evening for all in attendance.

Bro. Yuri Dimagiba put on a stellar performance at the Junior Warden's Night in Orono, where I also had the pleasure and privilege to meet R.W. Bro. William Chu, D.D.G.M. for the Grand Lodge of the Philippines.

Bro. Dimagiba, Bro. Dayot and I attended a 3rd Degree Exemplification out in Mississauga that was put on under the Philippine ritual. It was great to see the similarities between our degrees, while noting the various differences between the two rituals.

Christmas is around the corner, and the holiday season will soon be upon us. Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season. Hope to see you in Lodge.

May the G.A.T.O.U. watch over you, your families, and your loved ones.

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Freemasonry is many things to many men. Rightly so. It is one of the few organizations that still believes in freedom for the individual, including freedom of thought. Its adherents are free to interpret its symbolism and other facets as their minds, hearts, and consciences may dictate.

It is an organization of men based on the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man, using builder's tools as symbols to teach basic moral Truths, thereby impressing upon the minds of its members the cardinal virtues of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth which they should apply to everyday activities.

Freemasonry is kindness in the home, honesty in business, courtesy in society, fairness in work, pity and concern for the unfortunate, resistance toward the wicked, help for the weak, trust in the strong, forgiveness for the penitent, love for one another and, above all, reverence and love for God. Freemasonry is many things, but most of all: FREEMASONRY IS A WAY OF LIFE.
