First Fraternal Visit to Temple Lodge Sept 1, 2015 and the presentation of Grand Tyler regalia to VW Bro Russel Williams.
I now have my first visit in my own District as DDGM under my belt and it was a great night.
I was received under the wands accompanied by RW's Richard Loomes, Barry Burchill, Mike Jenkins, John Forster, Bob Ludingham and VW's George Chaiban, Grand Jameson and of course Rusty Williams.
The night was equal parts entertainment, education and inspiration, three attributes that I hope to promote throughout the District this year. RW Bro Ivor Bayley presented an educational piece on the Masonic Memorial Service, which was well timed as we have that duty to perform on Sunday for VW Bro Cliff Churchill. There was a casual festive board at the end of the evening where all the toasts were observed. VW Bro Williams returned the toast to Grand Lodge and I toasted him by reading aloud a letter from our Deputy Grand Master, RW Bro Paul E Todd.
I will be attending Edinburgh Lodge Wednesday September 2, 2015 and I will be at my Mother Lodge St. Andrew's 560 on Thursday September 3, 2015.
