Approximately 20 Canadian brethren from Muskoka Lodge #360 in Bracebridge, Ontario Canada will be coming to visit my lodge on Thursday April 25. The reason for the visit is that I have visited their lodge many times while vacationing near their lodge in the summertime and they want to come to be in my lodge with me. They are also most anxious to see a degree conferred in Pennsylvania. I have explained briefly to them some of the differences between our jurisdictions and the way we do things. We will be conferring a Master Mason's degree for them. It should be an enjoyable and wonderful experience for all.

Sounds like your planning a enjoyable evening.
Several years ago we had a program for awhile.  The names of all the Lodges In Northern CA and Nevada were put in a box, one of the brothers would pull out an name and the lodge would then make a visit to that lodge.  It was good fun as the lodge would caravan from our building.  We also received many visits in return.  I think I'll bring up the idea to this years Master as he is trying to get the lodge back on its feet after several years of falling apart.

thanks for your comments De Darrah. The brethren from Ontario are driving about 7 1/2 hours just to visit and see one of our degrees! This, just because I visited their lodge several times while in their area on vacation. I find that the Ontario Masons really do visit other lodges much more than we visit in my area. They frequently have a handful of visitors at their meetings. We are looking forward to welcoming them to our lodge.

That's Great!    Keep us posted how things goes with the visitation.
