COMMUNION SET BELONGED TO DONOR'S FATHER, REV. G.G. NAKAYAMA, WHO WAS AN ANGLICAN PRIEST AND WOULD USE THE KIT TO ADMINISTER COMMUNION TO SHUT-INS OR WHEN HE TRAVELLED. KIT IS MENTIONED IN DONOR'S NOVEL "OBASAN". THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970. FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “ALL THROUGHOUT SLOCAN, AND ALL THROUGHOUT [MY FATHER’S] TRAVELS, ANYTIME HE WOULD GO TO THE HOSPITALS TO HAVE COMMUNION SERVICES… FOR COTTAGE MEETINGS… THIS WOULD GO WITH HIM… ONE [CONTAINER] WOULD HAVE WINE, ONE WOULD HAVE WATER [AND] A SILVER THING TO HOLD… THOSE WAFERS IN… SOMEBODY MUST HAVE STOLEN [THE] SILVER THING, SO THIS IS WHAT REMAINS OF IT… THIS WOULD BE VERY PRECIOUS TO HIM… I DON’T KNOW WHERE IT WAS KEPT. HE HAD PLACES WHERE HE KEPT HIS SPECIAL THINGS.” SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.

History
GAVEL WAS USED BY THE PRESIDENT TO BRING MEETINGS TO ORDER AND "TO STOP THE GOSSIPING". RIBBONS DECORATING THE GAVEL WERE THE LODGE'S COLOURS. DONOR CAME INTO POSSESSION OF THE ARTIFACT(S) AS THE LAST PRESIDENT OF THE CPR LADIES LODGE. SINCE THERE WERE NO NEW MEMBERS AND FIVE MEMBERS WERE NEEDED TO HAVE A MEETING, THE LODGE AMALGAMATED WITH MEDICINE HAT. THE PAST SECRETARY MOVED TO A NURSING HOME AND THE DONOR BECAME BOTH PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY. THE AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION, FORMERLY THE LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729 WAS A CHAPTER OF THE LADIES TRAINMEN. THE LADIES AUXILIARY WAS ORGANIZED INFORMALLY BY SOPHIA J. GRANGER SHORTLY AFTER THE FORMATION OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN (BRT) ON 16 SEPTEMBER 1886 IN FORT GRATIOT, MICHIGAN. THE LADIES AUXILIARY WAS FORMALLY RECOGNIZED AT THE BRT CONVENTION IN OCTOBER 1888, AND THE FIRST CHARTER WAS GRANTED TO THE GRAND LODGE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN AT FORT GRATIOT ON 23 JANUARY 1889. THE AIMS OF THE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN ARE HERE QUOTED FROM THE CONSTITUTION AND GENERAL RULES REVISED TO 1951. "TO UNITE THE FAMILIES OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN; TO PROMOTE THEIR WELFARE SOCIALLY, MORALLY AND INTELLECTUALLY, AND TO ENCOURAGE THEM IN ALL THINGS PERTAINING TO THE GOOD OF THE BROTHERHOOD, THE AUXILIARY HAS BEEN ORGANIZED. CONVINCED THAT IT IS FOR THE GOOD OF THE BROTHERHOOD IN GENERAL, AND FOR OUR OWN WELFARE, THAT A MUTUAL GOOD FEELING SHOULD, AT ALL TIMES, EXIST BETWEEN BOTH ORGANIZATIONS, IT SHALL BE OUR CONSTANT AIM AND ENDEAVOR TO CREATE AND MAINTAIN THE SAME. SUCH ARE THE AIMS AND INTENTIONS OF THE LADIES AUXILIARY TO THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN." ON 10 MARCH 1970 THE BRT MERGED WITH THREE OTHER UNIONS TO BECOME THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION, AND THE NAME OF THE AUXILIARY WAS CHANGED TO LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION UNION. THE ORGANIZATION CONTINUES TO EXIST AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING. FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE UNITED TRANSPORTATION, WAS FORMED AT MEETING HELD IN THE MOOSE HALL IN LETHBRIDGE ON 3 FEBRUARY 1922 AS FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, LADIES AUXILIARY OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF RAILROAD TRAINMEN, THE 14 CHARTER MEMBERS OF THE LODGE WERE: MARY E. CAMPBELL, AMANDA CHOINIERE, LORETTA DAVIDSON, MARAGET GOODALL, JESSIE GORDON, MARY V. HIGHTON (SECRETARY), MABEL KEIVER (PAST PRESIDENT), LILLIE MAHON (PRESIDENT), ETTA MACDONALD, LUCY MURPHY, ANNA ROY, CLARA R. SMITH, BLANCHE WANS (VICE PRESIDENT) AND LEORA V. WRAY (TREASURER).MRS. WRAY PROPOSED THE NAME "FRIENDSHIP" FOR THE LODGE, WHICH WAS APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY. A LIST OF PRINCIPAL OFFICERS OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729, AS WELL AS ALL MEMBERS WHO JOINED FROM 1922 TO 1989 THAT IS AVAILABLE IN THE LODGE HISTORY. THE AIMS OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE WERE THE SAME AS THOSE OF THE PARENT ORGANIZATION. IN ADDITION, THE LODGE REGULARLY CONTRIBUTED MONEY AS WELL AS VOLUNTEERED GOODS AND TIME TO ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THE SALVATION ARMY, LETHBRIDGE HANDICAPPED RIDING ASSOCIATION, LETHBRIDGE SOUP KITCHEN AND LETHBRIDGE REGIONAL HOSPITAL. IN THE MID 1990S, THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE LODGE BEGAN TO DECLINE AS MEMBERS GREW OLDER, AND NO NEW MEMBERS WERE RECRUITED. THE CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES OF FRIENDSHIP LODGE NO. 729 CEASED ABOUT THE TURN OF THE 21ST CENTURY AND THE LODGE SURRENDERED ITS CHARTER ON 31 DECEMBER 2004.
