The earliest lodge in the region was in Coalhurst and Mr. Mazzuca has provided meRicordo Loggia Leonida Bissolati No5 OIFDI Group Photo. Courtesy of the Romulus & Remus Italian Society of Lethbridge. with a formal portrait of members of the Loggia Leonida Bissolati No. 5 of the OIFDI for the period 24 January, 1916 to 24 January, 1926. This was a commemorative photo for the period 1916-26 and supports Mr. Mazzuca's claim that the Lodge was disbanded in 1926.  It is haunting because there is no family information for most of the men and this photograph is the only proof of their existence. 

The members of Loggia Leonida Bissolati are as follows:
