Shoulder to the Wheel with Gerry Ratchford
Josh and Billy are pleased to sit down with PGM Gerry Ratchford along with his lock-tight memory to discuss his careers inside Odd Fellows and before joining in 1992. At 92 years young, Gerry filled us with so much life. Do check out Gerry’s military history and take the time to look up “Canada’s forgotten war” as Gerry told us to learn about the contribution of those service men and women during the Korean War.
** Correction: Vice President Colfax passed away in 1885. His visit to Victoria was in 1865, and Colfax Rebekah Lodge #1 was initiated in 1887 **
