2012 Installation of Officers

On Saturday, November 19th, John W. Barkley Lodge #621 celebrated its 99th Annual Installation of Officers with a great evening of food, fun, and fellowship.  Our Worshipful Master - Elect, Bro. Ramzi Jammal, was installed as the Worshipful Master of John W. Barkley Lodge.  We had over 100 in attendence to support our new line of officers.  Congratulations to all of them and best wishes on all of their endeavors during this 2012 Masonic year.

This event continues to bring home the meaning of the relationship that we've established with St. George Lodge #367 in Toronto, Ontario.  The tradition was passed to Barkley Lodge during the merger with Cornerstone Lodge in 2008.  In such a short time many friendships have been formed and the participation between the Lodges has increased.  Sadly we only see each other twice a year for our respective installation of officer ceremonies.  We are proud to be part of such a rich and wonderful tradition and hopefully we can find ways to visit more frequently in the near future.
