 November 2019 Message


First, I hope this message finds everyone well. October was a busy month with one Official Visit, six Installations and receptions for R.W. Bro Graeme Boyce, V.W. Bro. Robert Jewels and R.W. Bro Peter Sialtsis. Attendance has been very good, and I was also very pleased to see eight District Masters attend the Official Visit at Doric.

Coming up in November we only have two Installation, Wexford Lodge on Nov. 1st and Markham Union Lodge on Nov. 13th. If it is within the length of you Cabletow please support our new Masters and officers.

November 11th is Remembrance Day, a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by our armed forces for all of us.

The following are the Remembrance Day Service in our District:
November 9, 2019 – Markham Veterans’ Hall
      7 Washington St., Markham – Assembly at 9:30 a.m.
November 10, 2019 – Claremont Legion
      (south of the Lodge building) – Assembly at 1:00 p.m.
November 10, 2019 – Scarborough Town Centre
     150 Borough Dr., Scarborough – Assembly at 1:30 p.m.

R.W. Bro. Bruce Grimbleby will be at Markham, R.W. Bro. Malcom Parish at Claremont and I will be at Scarborough Town Centre. We hope to see of you there.

I want to continue to emphasise the importance of the Mentorship Program. W. Bro. Robert Culbertson the Mentor Program Chairman has placed the information for the mentorship program on a memory stick which I have started to distribute to all lodges. It is now up to you to implement this program which I feel can do nothing but assist you in making your new members feel needed, welcomed and appreciated. It is imperative that every new member be assigned a sponsor and it needs to be someone he is comfortable with. Do you remember your first time in lodge how nervous you where? Next time you open lodge look around and if you see an EA or FC sitting by himself, your guidance is required. The impression you make on him is vital for the success of not only your lodge but also of his Masonic career.

I want to thank all the lodges and members for their hospitality and genuine warmth which you have afforded both to me and The District Secretary.

 Brethren, I look forward to greeting you all personally.

 May the Great Architect of the Universe continue to protect and guide us in all our endeavours.


R. W. Bro. Gilbert L. Carreiro,
DDGM, Toronto East Distict. 2019~2020
