Sagurs takes charge at Atlantic Phoenix

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Atlantic Phoenix No 224, one of the oldest masonic lodges in Bermuda on the Grand Registry of England, has a new Worshipful Master. He is Worshipful Brother (W Bro) Zachary J Sagurs, who was installed with all the combined solemnity and spectacle associated with these annual events, attended by the big chiefs along with brethren from all three of the Constitutions in the island, English, Scottish and Irish.

Over and above its antiquity and the influence it asserted throughout the last two centuries, Atlantic Phoenix is probably the wealthiest, being owners of the majestic Masonic Hall in Reid Street.

W.B. Sagurs after being duly installed by W Bro Thad A Hollis, he installed his own officers and afterwards, entertained all present at a fine festive board, which is masonic terminology for a banquet downstairs in the temple. There he received compliments from the two “rulers” who were his proposer and seconder for membership in the craft, W Bro Rick Kempe and Right W Bro R W Rego, JP.
