Bro Callum joined St Laurence Lodge during a lovely ceremony carried out by our Master, W Bro Dean, who was ably assisted by his IPM, W Bro David. He was supported also by his officers and other members of the lodge in a most confident manner.
At the meeting we were happy to receive our Assistant Provincial Grand Master, W Bro Ken Montgomery PSGD, accompanied by Provincial Assistant Grand Director of Ceremonies, W Bro Steve Staples. W Bro Ken met the brethren who had been initiated since his last visit and the lodge was pleased to be able to present him with cheques to the sum of £2,500 in aid of Festival 2022.
Our Junior Deacon excelled as he took charge of our new Initiate and Bro Reiss gave a perfect lecture on the white apron with which Bro Callum was invested. Bro Emmet explained faultlessly why our new Brother was asked to give in the aid of charity and Bro Lee gave a word perfect explanation of the working tools of an Entered Apprentice Freemason. Finally, after a break for tea, Bro Walt took the floor and gave a truly eloquent delivery of the Charge after Initiation.
The festive board was a joyous occasion with good food, fine wine and excellent company. The toasts were enjoyable and our APGM updated us with news in the Province and was very kind indeed with his comments about the lodge. All in all a very good day!
