Freemasons Meet In Cobourg
Freemasons from Cobourg and Colborne joined together on Saturday January 24th in Cobourg for a joint Friend to Friend breakfast meeting. This is when friends, family and acquaintances of Masons who are interested in Masonry are invited into the Lodge room to find out what it is all about.
Around 60 Masons and guests attended and a breakfast of fruit salad, scrambled eggs, sausages and toast, juice and coffee was served at 9.a.m. After breakfast everyone retired to the Lodge room where a short video was shown. After the video there were presentations in the Lodge room itself explaining the furnishings, Masonic aprons and collars and the titles and duties of Lodge officers and most importantly what Freemasonry stands for, what Masonry expects from applicants and what applicants can expect from Masonry.
After the meeting there was a period for questions and answers. All in all a very enjoyable day.
