Knights of Pythias
Closing Brunch
In Honour of
Past Grand Chancellor

Michael Berman

On Sunday, June 23, 2019, about 60 Pythians and their guests gathered to help celebrate the end of the Pythian Year.

And what a great celebration it was!  Fun, Food and Friendship was the Order of the day!

Thank you to all those who attended.  We are certainly looking forward to our next closing brunch, Summer 2020.

On November 1, 2018, more than 100 members of our Community joined the Knights of Pythias in a reception for our new home.

We are proud to say that because of our reception and a brief slide show, showing "who were are" we recruited five new member to our Order.

Below are just a few pictures of a very successful event.

Congrats to the organizers:  Grand Chancellor Michael Berman, Vice Grand Chancellor Calvin Finkelstein, Sir James Indig and Grand Secretary John Derrick.

Thanks, too, to Arie Daniel, event co-coordinator and to Adina Derrick, baker extraordinaire!

Ms. Michaelson will be speaking to our members, friends and community in May, 2018.  More details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Several years ago Brother Phil Troy, PhD. came up with an idea to form a committee to develop a series of presentations, about how we can help ourselves, or how we can benefit medically, based on the experience or training of a speaker. This project would be oriented both towards KOP members and their families, as well as others in the community.

Brother Phil drew up a whole list of topics and the source of where to look for the speakers as well. You might say that thanks to Brother Phil Troy and the late P.D.S.C. Sir Gerald Weinstein we were able to put together several successful, well attending programs.

Our first program was held on March 21st 2011 on a Monday night, our first speaker was Caryn Roll who is a registered dietitian and member of the Ordre Professionel des Dietetistes du Quebec. Her topic was How Easy it is to Achieve a Healthy Diet and how much fun nutrition can be while giving you tips on how to improve you health with food. The program featured a slide show and documentation was distributed to all who attended.

Our second program was held on Monday June 13, 2011featuring Ms. Rosemary Steinberg, Ombudsman at  the Jewish General Hospital. Her topic was Making the Best of A Bad Situation. How to Thrive and Survive Hospital Care; The right and responsibilities of patients receiving health care in Quebec. The program was well attended and documentation was distributed as well.

Our third program was held on Thursday, May 17, 2012 featuring Dr. Laurie Betito, Sex Therapist Radio Talk show host on CJAD. Her topic was Use It or Lose It. You Can Keep Your Sexuality Alive Forever. This program was well attended and the most lively of discussions.

On October 22, 2012 Our fourth speaker was a world renowned Urologist, Dr. Yosh Taguchi an associate Professor of Surgery (Urology) at McGill University and a senior urologist at Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal.

On May 20, 2014,  Dr. Tina Kader, Endocrinologist at the Jewish General Hospital spoke to us about Type II Diabetes.  Over 100 Pythians and guests enjoyed an amazing talk from Dr. Kader.

Our next speaker taught us that LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE.  Thanks so much to laugh therapist TRACY SCHACHTER for an entertaining and informative evening.

Our latest speaker, Dr. Alexandra Zorbas, award winning pediotrist, was our guest speaker in May, 2016.  Her topic was:  YOUR FEET AND DIABETES.  A special thanks goes out to Past Chancellor FARLEY FISHMAN, for organizing this evening, and to the families of SIR JAMES INDIG and HAROLD VINEBERG, who sponsored this event.
