West Gate Lodge opened their new Masonic in grand style as the W. Bro. Sammy, officers, and members plus visitors from Toronto West and beyond filled the seats to capacity. The evening began with the Initiation of our newest Mason, Bro. Patrella. This evening also saw the investiture of our new Lodge Secretary R.W. Warner as he assumes his new role for the Lodge.
The evening also brought challengers for the coveted "travelling Gavel" from Mississauga, Flower City, and Ionic Lodges. The excitement was high as this District Lodge visitation challenge concluded with Flower City taking the trophy home with them until we can return it back to West Gate. Also worthy mention should be made to other Lodges that were present for this huge night such as representatives from Adanac, River Park, and Wellington Square Lodge's.
The evening's success continued into the banquet hour with our JW Bro. Bugley and his wife putting on a festive spread ending with the JW making his toast in a truly innovative and spectacular way to the awe of every person in attendance. "Happy to meet........happier to see you come back"
