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!

Visit to the Arnprior & District Museum
The Bruce County Museum has set up a travelling feature exhibit entitled "Freemasonry: A History Hidden In Plain Sight". (See links) The exhibit celebrates and promotes the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of Masonic history and the influence Freemasonry has on our society today. The story is told through a travelling exhibit from the Bruce County Museum, containing story boards and artifacts, regalia, and portraits of famous masons from around the world.
The feature exhibit is further enriched with artifacts from local Masonic lodges and in particular, from Madawaska Lodge No. 196, which is celebrating its 150th this year.
