  • Print

Don Carganillo was installed the new worshipful master of Winnipeg River Lodge No. 154 located at Lac Du Bonnet, Man., on Dec. 14, 2013, at East Kildonan Masonic Temple on Kimberly Avenue in  Winnipeg.

Carganillo was installed the new worshipful master along with the other two principal officers of the lodge — senior warden Elvin Garcia and junior warden Antonino Perez.

The open installation ceremony was performed by Most Worshipful Brother Chibu Uson, a past grand master of the Grand Lodge of Manitoba. Right Worshipful Brother Junn Manalang was the installing director of ceremonies.

Present to witness Carganillo’s installation were his wife Adrienne, eldest daughter Kyra, son Axl and youngest daughter Ice. Ian Carganillo, Don’s elder brother, who is also a Mason and other relatives, friends and brethren from other masonic lodges under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Manitoba were also in attendance.

A sumptuous dinner prepared by the lodge was served by the members of the Winnipeg River Lodge Ladies Auxiliary.

Carganillo was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in January, 2009, at Viking Lodge No. 175 in Gimli, Manitoba. Since becoming a mason he has joined other Masonic appendant bodies — Khartum Shriners, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rites Freemasonry of Canada and Pinoy Mason of Canada.

He occupied the positions_ junior warden and senior warden before becoming the lodge’s Master for the Masonic Year 2014.

"We will grow as a Masons together...," Carganillo said at his installation. "In our hearts, we shall erect the best temple we could build... and in our words and actions, we shall allow it to project. May we be identified and recognized as Freemasons, not just because of the Apron that we wear, nor the office our jewel represents, but more importantly the character that we portray."
