On Saturday March 3rd members of the Valley of Halifax and their guests enjoyed an evening of food and fun at our annual Ladies Night Dinner Theatre held at the Port Wallis United Church in Dartmouth. This annual event is part of the Valley’s social programme and, once again, the Port Wallis Players theatre troupe delivered a performance full of energy, enthusiasm, and loads of laughter.
On the playbill this year was, A Cow’s Tale, written by a Nova Scotian and performed by Nova Scotians with such wit and charm one could imagine it set in any town or village in the Maritimes. Indeed, one might even recognize in its characters a little something of people they know or, even a little bit of themselves. All of that, combined with the singing and comedic antics of some great home-grown talent, together with great food and fond fellowship made for an enjoyable and memorable evening.
Two of our more recent members of the Valley of Halifax received their degree certificates last night from Thrice Puissant Grand Master Ill. Bro Kelly W. Hancock 32° and Ill. Bro Matthew F. Todd 33 °, Past Sovereign Grand Commander.
Bro. Fred Hines 18° received his certificate for the 18°-Knight of the Rose Croix and Bro. Francesco Troili 14° was presented with his certificate for the 14°- Grand Elect, Perfect and Sublime Mason.
The Valley of Halifax is proud of the accomplishments of our new brothers and looks forward to being a part of their further journey in the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite.
Did you know that The Valley of Halifax is home to two Past Sovereign Grand Commanders of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in Canada?
That’s right, our own Harold E. Crosby 33° served as SGC from 1994 to 1997 and Matthew F. Todd 33°, from 2009 to 2012.
Both brothers are very active in the Valley and in Freemasonry in general. Matt is the National Director of the Scottish Rite Charitable Foundation Learning Centres for Children. Harold serves as the Grand Treasurer for the Valley of Halifax as well as Grand Treasurer for the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia.
Matt and Harold are invaluable sources of experience and wisdom for the Valley and continue to set the example as Scottish Rite Masons.
