Apollo Lodge No. 437 conferred two Entered Apprentice Masons Degrees at an Extra Meeting which was visited by a substantial amount of visitors from fellow Lodges within District 27.
We are very happy to welcome newly entered Brothers Alex J. Thompson and Skyler D. Zimmerman.
District 27 has two plaques which we use to encourage traveling between the 8 Lodges in our District, the Traveling Gavel and the Traveling Trowel.
The Traveling Gavel is awarded to a Lodge that brings five or more members to a Stated Meeting and the Traveling Trowel is awarded to the Lodge that brings five or more members to an Extra Meeting.
Awardees display the plaques until another Lodge comes to claim them.
Argyle Lodge No. 540 and Williamson Lodge No. 431 both had 5 members visit Apollo Lodge No. 437's Extra Meeting. Apollo Lodge has held both for quite a while so it was decided that they would forfeit both plaques.
Brother Scott W. McNeil W.M. and members of Argyle Lodge No. 540 receives the Traveling Gavel from Brother Keith O. Tardivo P.M./W.M. of Apollo Lodge No. 437.
Brother Kenneth L. McClain W.M. and members of Williamson Lodge No. 431 receives the Traveling Trowel from Brother Keith O. Tardivo
