With last night's class of initiations complete, Gate City has eight Entered Apprentices: 7 by degree, 1 as a courtesy conferral.
Tuesday's Ceremony was conferred by Beaux Pettys WM, David LLewelyn SW, Nick Hayes JW, Donald Hall SD, Victor Marshal JD, Zeithlin Waters SS, BJ Crapps JS, and conducted by John Guest and Minh Van. Several members and guests were on hand to watch the shimmering ritual performed in Gate City's own inimitable fashion. The second section was handled by David Johnston, Donald Hall and Beaux Pettys.
David Johnston gave the Bible, Apron and Charity lectures. Being a Lodge full of attorneys, the second section mirrored a session of English Parliament. David Johnston handled well the opposing viewpoints as he presided over the second section. The initiation was finished off by Beaux Pettys in the Northeast Corner.
Gate City's method of work can best be described as Gothic. The overall intensity is solely for the benefit of the candidate. The goal of such work is to deliver, with impact, the meaning and significance of the craft and to meet or exceed the most prevalent image of the fraternity to which candidates may be exposed prior to initiation.
