Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Alberta

Calgary Daylight Chapter No. 43 UD

With heavy snowfall and temperature at -70C and travel not recommended, Calgary Daylight Chapter No. 43 UD held their very first Chapter Meeting. Companions from outside of Calgary, AB were unable to attend because of the road conditions. Attendance was somewhat small, but we still had twenty-one Companions in attendance, which included ten Chapter Officers and eleven Grand Chapter Officers. The Grand First Principal MEC James Carswell and the Grand Second Principal REC Jaime Wong were in attendance to witness the First Meeting. Both the GZ & GH are also members and officers of this Chapter. It is also worth noting that the Chapter has twenty-eight Charter Companions.
