Connaught Lodge A.F. & A.M. No. 511 G.R.C.

Regular Meeting - April 18, 2011

Each year, Connaught Lodge #511 and Shuniah Lodge #287 have a Euchre/Cribbage Tournament, playing for the coveted "Scottie" trophy.  The looser must attend the winning Lodge's next regular meeting and make a formal presentation of the trophy.  Shuniah Lodge made the trip to Connaught Lodge this year with the event being witnessed by over 35 members.

The evening also marked the first anniversary of the amalgamation of Connaught Lodge #511 with Thunder Bay Lodge #618.
