On June 8, 2016 West Gate Lodge saw W. Bro. Bugley ascend to the chair of King Solomon. The W.M. had many family members join him who had traveled long distances to attend this auspicious occasion. His cousin, W Bro. Breckwith, from Nova Scotia was honoured to partake of the ceremony to Install his cousin.
Other distinguished Masons in attendance were R.W. Bro. Spoletini, DDGM of Toronto West District, M.W. Bro. Groshaw, PGM and M.W. Bro. Petrisor, PGM.
A splendid banquet will go down in lodge history as another noteworthy and memorable event. The forethought and sheer effort was evident down to the smallest of details. The new WM, Jaime and their helpers transformed the hall into the classy venue packed by the gentlemen who came together to celebrate such a memorable occasion. Nice addition to the stage!
West Gate shone as the banquet entertainment achieved new heights. Agent 007(34).... you have a licence to rule us for the ensuing twelve months.
Best of luck to the new slate of officers for the coming year. Actually, luck has nothing to do with it. Commitment and effort are all that is really needed. Where these values are in abundance success can only result.
Also notable during the evening as W. Bro. Mistry who was greeted as our newest member affiliating from his home lodge in Zambia.
Thanks to the many visitors, members and guests who assisted throughout the evening making for a memorable occasion.
Check out the pictures if you didn't make it and mark June 14, 2017 on the calendar when we do it all over again!
