Ten contestants entered their chilis in the First Annual Chili Cook-Off, held at Wesboro Masonic Temple on Friday, 27 Apr 18. All proceeds from the Cook-Off were donated to the Ottawa Mission.
Every seat was filled, as ticket holders lined up to sample the offerings, and enjoy the following fun-filled meal.
Judges for the Cook-Off were our own DDGM, RWBro Michael Nagrodski, and Chef Rick from the Ottawa Mission. The judges chose three winners for the categories of: best overall chili, won by Olive Nelson; the most innovative chili, won by Robert Kerr; and the runner-up best chili, won by the WM's spouse, Holly Hawkins. In addition, everyone who attended had the opportunity to vote on the people's choice of the best chili, and that was won by Brodie Fraser's Mother Janice.
$1054 dollars was raised for the Ottawa Mission!
Fraternal Visit to Luxor Daylight Lodge 741
We had eight members in attendance at the DD's official visit to Luxor Daylight Lodge on Wednesday, 17 Oct 18, and are now, at least temporarily, the proud holders of the Travelling Trowel (even though it is not actually in our possession).
A smiling WBro George Ingraham looks on, as the WM, WBro Ernest Nelson cuts the cake, which was made by his Spouse, Olive, and portrays our brand new logo.

The JW, Bro Jon Orazietti, seems to be enjoying the feast which he provided.
Bytown's fraternal visit to Ashlar Lodge No. 564 on 2 Nov 18 led to our lodge again being presented with the Travelling Trowel. As the photo shows, seven of our brethren turned up to claim the trophy for the largest number of visitors.
At Dalhousie Lodge No 52 on 6 Nov 18, we again successfully defended the trophy with another strong delegation, this time with 11 members present (RWBro Peter Harbert is not in the photo., but he was there). Great work!
