Another busy evening for us on the night of the 8th November. As is always the case for this meeting, we first had the election of officers for the ensuing year. This was followed by raising one of our newer brothers to the degree of a Master Mason.
Unfortunately, illness, work, and holidays, beset the best laid plans of mice and men. The three principle officers were all missing! Thankfully, we knew a little in advance, so a substitute team was quickly put together and the ceremony went very well, once more. A huge thank-you to all of the stand-ins; they know who they are.
Our new Master Mason also performed admirably. He will be joining the list of officers as soon as he is able, which just happens to be our very next meeting...
Our Fraternal visitors on this occasion were St. John's Lodge No. 80, represented by their Worshipful Master, Fenwick Lodge No. 1359, represented by their Senior Warden, Master Elect, and Civic Lodge No. 5841, represented by their Senior Warden.
A fine festive board followed.
It is our Installation meeting next month. The closing of one year in preparation for the next. Here's hoping it's a good one.
Until the next time.
