Members of Pride of Virginia Lodge, No. 122, gathered at the residence of Messrs. George Morrison and James Martin on Grady Avenue, last Thursday night after the regular meeting at Odd Fellows Hall, and greeted in a most fraternal fashion Messrs. Randolph White, Marshall Hawkins and William Clark, newly made members of the lodge.
Mr. D.F. Childress, Worshipful Master, was Toastmaster for the occasion, and after a volley of eloquent toasts, Mr. Childress presented Mr. George L. Minor, who gave a short, but impressive farewell address. Mr. Minor will be in Atlantic City, N.J., until Christmas.
Another feature of the banquet was the Toast Contest between Messrs. Robert Cooper and John Wesley. Other members present included Messrs. George Winfrey, Bernand Shaw, Fred Hearns, and T.J. Sellers.
