On May 13, 2023, an unforgettable event took place on the 40th Anniversary of the original Cornerstone dedication, a celebration held at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Members first assembled and enjoyed a pipe and drum led spectacular parade in regalia through the village, which was followed by the historic re-dedication of the Cornerstone Ceremony conducted by R. W. Bro. Jamie R. Ireland, Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of Ontario.
This event – as seen in the video – commemorates M. W. Bro. Ronald Groshaw’s dedication of the Cornerstone for the restored pre-confederation building in 1983. Heritage Lodge, which still houses a Lodge Room on the second floor, will be hosting this momentous occasion. Volunteers from Heritage Lodge will be on-site to answer any questions visitors may have, and also staff the facility during the summertime weekends. Please contact us if you’d like to volunteer as well.
