Today we initiated Chris Nunn and James Parry
We had many visitors, inc WM of Agicola and a rep from Grand Lodge
It was an interesting night, as we dont often do doubles…some bits did not go to plan, but we got there with brotherly help and harmony.
Festive board was good as usual, featuring pate starter, chicken ceaser salad and trifle, which was just the ticket given the temperature was about 27C
Lovely evening, 2 initiates very happy, lots of laughs with the visitors
Well what a turn out for Bro Travis’ passing….
RW Bro Dr David Chambers PGM was attending, and the lodge had 52 Brethren marking the occasion.
We also welcomed back our old caterer, and my goodness what a wonderful festive board they laid out.
Bro Travis was passed and enjoyed the evening
Stewards did a marvellous job as always
RW Bro Dr David Chambers toast to the evening was one of the most heartfelt and inspiring toasts Iv heard in a long time….such a pleasure to meet him.
Meal was curry soup, gammon and veg, lemon compote and coffee
Tonight we had a lecture on the meaning of symbolism in the initiation given by the DC.
We were meant to have a candidate initiation, sadly he could not make it at the last moment.
The lodge thanks the DC for stepping in, and the Brethren that had ritual to perform, did so.
This was the first piece of ritual for the new ladder as we install WM in Jan, so all in all it went well…
We had 3 visitors, and we thank them for joining us on this most enjoyable evening.
Next month is a 3rd….the first one the lodge has done in about 4 years….I hope it will be a busy one, so please get in touch to visit.
A lovely evening was had by all initiating a new member into Freemasonry
This was the last ritual evening for our current WM as installation is in Jan. but all the Brethren appreciate his efforts over the past year.
Festive board was broccoli and Stilton soup, chicken ragu with roast potatoes and carrots and chocolate and raspberry sundae
5 visitors were in attendance, they all enjoyed themselves.
Going to be a busy year next year, we already have 1st, 2nd and 3rds lined up for ritual…hope to some new faces and old visitors returning.
We were treated to a lecture on the history of the lodge, both about the building and about items within, after the York open buildings weekend, Mike had been well rehearsed.
Lecture was given by Mike Curley, who is a fountain of knowledge on the lodge’s history..and a lodge Trustee
We had 3 visitors in attendance, inc one Grand Lodge officer, who was an absolute pleasure to meet and have drinks with.
Festive board was dim sums, salmon chow mein and pineapple pana cota.
Next meeting was announce as an Initiation in Nov
