A True Thanksgiving Story.  

I thought I would share something that we can all be Thankful for this Season. 

Our armed forces that are serving and for those that have served before are the reason we are free today. They should be foremost on our minds daily. God Bless them all.
Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Brethren All

I feel sure you will be pleased to know that Freemasonry continues to be practiced worldwide, regardless of circumstances and adversity. The following forwarded e-mail and photographs attest to the same.

You may wish to pass this on to other Freemasons for their information.
With kindest regards.
Yours sincerely and fraternally

 Brethren,
 Canada Lodge held our first Ceremonies of Initiation on the
evening of October 7, 2010 here at Kandahar Air Field.

 Initiated were Major Robert Kelly and Corporal Satraj Toor.

 As you can see from the photos, our lodge is now beautifully furnished thanks to the generosity of the brethren from back home.
 Due to operational requirements we did not (all who had parts)
have the chance (though try we did) to do a complete run through before the big night.

 If I may say so myself, the ceremony was done as well as any I have seen back home (in my limited Masonic experience, mind you).

 All of the parts came together seamlessly and it was quite evident
 that all of the brethren had put their heart and soul into the
 perfection of their work.

 I am truly honoured to have been a part of this historic Masonic
 event.

 Our evening ended with a truly Afghan flavour as we were posing for photographs we came under rocket attack and had to hit the
floor (pictured).
