Shuniah Lodge Members Assist in Camp Duncan Roof Upgrades

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a beautiful fall day out at Camp Duncan as members of the Masons joined Camp Duncan Board Members to kick off the roof upgrades on two of three cabins needing structural upgrades. Bill Lynch explained how many Thunder Bay Residents, Suppliers and the local Lumber Yards had been very generous in assisting the Camp to acquire the materials to do this years maintenance.

It's great to see the Thunder Bay Community working together on such an important resource for today's Youth.

Over the many years the camp has operated, small trees had become quite large and were encroaching on the old roof structure. The team of volunteers remove some trees that were practically growing right into the old roof on cabin 6.

A group of Masons and friends  from the Algoma District participated in the upgrade.  Masons in above picture include Bill Deadman, Innes Marin, and Chris Higgins being just a few of today's
hard working team.

Shuniah Lodge honours Bro. Eric Peterson on his 100th Birthday

 

 

Family and Friends attended at a DROP-IN RECEPTION at the Embassy Bar (above the Hoito), Finlandia Hall, to celebrated Eric Peterson's 100th birthday.

A number of members of Shuniah Lodge attended the celebration and took this picture.  It was a great event!  There were a lot of people there and there were pictures of past events in Eric's life that were displayed all over the bar area in the Finlandia.  We all signed a large bristle board to show who came.  There was a good turn-out for Masons as well.  When I spoke with Eric, he told me he wasn't coming to lodge anymore because of his hearing.  He stood at the entrance to the bar the whole time greeting everyone who came!  When I left I congratulated him again and he was just as energetic then!

1914 saw the first visit of Palestine Lodge to Shuniah Lodge since 1874. An 18 course dinner was served at the Prince Arthur Hotel. The gift of a brass key, weighing 23 lbs., and a duplicate of that presented to the Duluth Brethren, was made by Bro. T. H. Fisher at that time. The key has been the symbol of visitation ever since.
