Friday afternoon kicked off with the Order of High Priesthood conferral, followed by the Ceremonial Opening and Memorial Service of the Grand Chapter. I was honored with introductions along with so many other distinguished guests and for being allowed to take part in the Memorial Service. Friday night was the Grand Banquet where I sat at the head table with the Grand Z (Grand First Principal), Grand H (Grand Second Principal) and his wife, Grand J (Grand 3rd Principal who will be Grand Z during their Centennial), and the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Saskatchewan and his wife. After a delicious meal, I was asked to present the Bronze Medal.
Saturday morning I attended a Red Cross of Constantine Breakfast before the Grand Chapter reopened at 9am and received distinguished guests from sister jurisdictions and concordant bodies. I was honored to represent the General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons International and I gave some comments that were well received. After lunch, the newly elected officers were installed.
The rest of the day I explored Saskatoon, or rather the Paris of the Prairie. It's a nice town and was beautiful to see in late Springtime. Now I'm getting to bed for an early flight home.
