The evening began with an early Festive Board of Baked Ham, Scalloped potatoes, veggies, salad, buns and pumpkin pie and chocolate cake to die for (made by the Master's wife). At the conclusion of the meal, W Bro Farmer presented a piece to the Brethren on the Bronze Soldier that was a part of the 'living cenotaph' an inter-active approach to remembrance.
I was escorted to the East by Bro Prosperine and Bro Boivant, presented by VW Bro Wib Paul and Bro Beck led the Brethren in Grand honours.
The Work of the evening was to have 2 brethren Prove up in the third degree, to hold a Lodge of Discussion on 'How do we make our visitors feel more welcome in our lodges, and to present a MM certificate to a worthy Brother.
The discussion was lively and many of the Brethren participated. Interestingly enough, good ritual and engagement came up repeatedly over the course of the discussion.
Congratulations to the Worshipful Master for planning this program, his team for pulling it off and especially to W Bro Brian Adam's for his role as moderator.
As usual i had the last word and i decided to talk about what it means to call someone their 'Brother'.
