Widow’s Son 150th

On Oct. 13th the Widow’s Son Lodge #48 hosted a roast beef supper as part of their 150th year celebrations. There was a very good turn out of brothers, their guests and widows of brothers to enjoy the meal and company.


The event took place at the Collingwood Community Hall which is part of the Collingwood Fire Station. While waiting for the meal to begin, W Bro. Bruce Stewart gave a very interesting talk on the history of the Widow’s Son Lodge #48 and how it was instrumental in bringing into existence other lodges in our district.

After the meal the MLA for Cumberland South, the Hon. Tory Rushton, made a presentation to the worshipful master of the lodge, W Bro. Robert Carter, recognizing the 150 years that the lodge has been in existence.

The MC for the event was RW Bro. Bill Merriam, secretary of Widow’s Son Lodge #48, who kept things rolling with introductions, instructions and light hearted comments. Entertainment was provided by Mr. Drew Moore of Amherst on his guitar.

The meal was catered to by the Parkview Restaurant in Oxford. Those in attendance greatly enjoyed themselves and the food was very good. The light blueberry dessert was to die for!
