Winter Garden Lodge Seizes Traveling Gavel

At a stated communication of Mokanna Lodge No. 329 F&AM, Ten members of Winter Garden Lodge No. 165 F&AM visited our Mokanna brethren for a delightful supper and fellowship.  Congratulations to the fresh officers of Mokanna for running a very efficient meeting.  The ritual was nearly flawless!  With much levity, WM Eric Romano was glad to be relieved of the coveted trophy as he has carried it to almost all of the installation of officer ceremonies for the 17th district.  He passed the gavel to WM Mark Kirkley and charged him with the duty of delivering it to Eola Lodge installation on Jan. 30th.  WM Kirkley accepted the trophy with hopes that some of the other lodges in the district would endeavor to visit Winter Garden and attempt to relieve us of the gavel.
