Crescamus Lodge’s October meeting was another fantastic occasion, and made all the better, by a visit from not just one, but two Deputy Provincial Grand Masters.
Firstly, we honoured by the presence of V.W. Brother David Chambers Past Grand Sword Bearer. V.W. Bro. David had been initiated into Crescamus Lodge, before moving to Yorkshire several years ago, where he has risen to the rank of Deputy Provincial Grand Master of the Province of Yorkshire North and East Ridings. To mark David’s promotion the Brethren of Crescamus elected David to honorary membership.
We were also visited by V.W. Brother Richard Wileman, PGSwdB, Surrey’s own Deputy Provincial Grand Master who joined us to wish his best to V.W. Bro. David. Richard was accompanied by the Provincial Grand Secretary, W. Bro. Mike Robinson, one of the Province’s Deputy Grand Directors of Ceremonies and a retinue of Provincial Grand Stewards.
The meeting also saw our most recent member Raised to the 3rd Degree, making him a Master Mason, in a fantastic style by the Master and Brethren of the Lodge.
After the conclusion of the ceremony, the members of Crescamus unanimously voted to donate £600.00 to charities. Those who benefitted were Katie’s Lymphodema Fund, St. Pier’s School (Young Epilepsy) and South East Cancer Help Centre, Purley.
After the conclusion of the Lodge meeting, the members and their guests all dined together enjoying a fabulous meal and each other’s company.
