Fraternal Visit to Goodwood Lodge

We had a great time last night at Goodwood, as the lodge welcomed our Grand Senior Warden, RW Bro Bob Ledingham on his first visit to his Mother Lodge since being elected GSW.  The Deputy and I, along with RW Bro Burchill, RW Bro Forster, RW Bro Jenkins, VW Bro Williams and VW Bro Jameson were piped in by Bro Jordan McConnell and escorted to the East.  First the Deputy accepted the gavel then passed it to me where I thanked all the brethren.  The business of the evening was to welcome the GSW back into lodge and RW Bro Don Healey presented a paper on the life and times of RW Bro Ledingham.  It was interesting and impressive and I am glad I had the opportunity to learn a little more about our GSW.  Afterwards we retired to the banquet room for a homemade feast of  beans, lasagna, roast beef and for dessert, apple pie and cheese.  I have to admit people did warn me that I would be gaining 20 lbs this year and now I see why.
 Good job to the Brethren of Goodwood!
