District Deputy Grand Master
Toronto East District

August 2019 Message


First I want to thank all the members of our district for the honour of electing me as the Grand Master’s representative for Toronto East District. I follow many outstanding Masons and I intend to serve our District with the same high standards they have set.

The encouragement and support I have received in the past year has been overwhelming and much appreciated, as have the congratulatory phone calls and e-mails from the brethren in our district and across this Grand Jurisdiction. No man is an Island, that being said; I look forward to working with you and to your continued support.

A special thank you to my Worshipful Master R.W. Bro. Dean Bergerson, all the Past Masters and Brethren of Canada Lodge Canada Lodge 532 for their support and nomination.

I am looking forward to working with my long time friend W. Bro. Gerry Campbell who has graciously accepted the position as The District Secretary. He is someone I have previously relied on when I was Master at R.J.R.R. and he was the Lodge Secretary. He is a man of great integrity, skill and knowledge.

To R.W. Bro. Malcolm J. Parish and V.W. Bro William L. Willis, I thank you both for your dedication to the craft and especially to our district during the past year. I have enjoyed travelling with you this past year.

I would like to congratulate our Grand Master MW Bro. David J. Cameron, Deputy Grand Master RW Bro. Thomas W. Hogeboom and all the ofUicers elected and appointed to Grand Lodge.

My congratulations also to the following brethren in our district who were elected or appointed at the 164th communication of Grand Lodge:
       R. W. Bro. Peter J. Sialtsis elected to The Board of General Purposes
       R. W. Bro. Graeme A. Boyce elected Grand Senior Warden
       V. W. Bro. William L. Willis appointed Assistant Grand Secretary
       V. W. Bro. Robert Charles Jewell appointed Assistant Grand Organist
       V. W. Bro. Royce Machum Baker appointed Grand Steward

Please make sure you congratulate these fine Masons and I know they will have a memorable year.

Just a quick reminder the date for the T.E.D. Senior Warden Corn Roast & BBQ is Saturday August 24th at Wind Reach Farm, 312 Townline Road Ashburn (Whitby). Please try to attend it will be a day that your family will enjoy especially the children with all the animals and rides.

I will again mention the following, but just to give you a heads Toronto East will be hosting a Grand Lodge of Instruction for Master Masons. This session I have been asked to also invite our Brethren from the Districts of Ontario, Toronto Don Valley, and Toronto Humber. It will take place at Whitby Temple on September 24, 2019 refreshments and registration from 6pm to 6:59pm and Lodge at 7pm. Dress will be casual, regalia will not be worn, bring your books of the work and a note pad.

Brethren enjoy the warm weather and have a great summer. I look forward to seeing you're smiling faces in September.

May the Great Architect of the Universe always smile over us and protect us in all our endeavours.


R. W. Bro. Gilbert L. Carreiro,
DDGM, Toronto East Distict. 2019~2020
