With a Little Help from our Friends

Monday 20 May, saw the Crescamus’ final meeting of the Masonic season, and what a great meeting it was. 29 Brethren were present as we Passed to the Second Degree our newest member.

With the late-Spring bank holiday approaching fast, several of our members were unable to make the meeting, with holidays having been booked. So we called upon our friends from the Foundation Club, Surrey’s Club for new Masons and a smattering of Provincial Grand Stewards past and present to help us out and ensure a fantastic ceremony for our candidate.

Members of the Foundation Club with our newly Passed Brother

The Worshipful Master opened the lodge and after welcoming our many visitors, carried out the Ceremony of Passing in fine form. He was ably assisted by his Officers including W. Bro Mike and Bro. Mark from the Foundation Club who stood in as Junior Deacon and Inner Guard respectively and did a fantastic job.

Second Degree Tracing Board

Following the conclusion of the ceremony another of our guests, W. Bro. Ivan gave a splendid rendition of the Second Degree Tracing Board lecture for the benefit of our newly Passed Brother.

Silver Award

Crescamus Lodge was then honoured when W. Bro. John, Treasurer of the Surrey 2019 RMBI Festival presented the Worshipful Master with a Silver Award for the Lodge’s contribution in helping the Province reach and exceed its target of raising £3.25 million. Crescamus Lodge donated a very impressive £11,596 to that total.

Festive Board

Following the conclusion of the lodge meeting business, the brethren retired for a pre-dinner drink before the festive board which topped a great evening, with everyone enjoying themselves, ensuring it was a very lively evening in the best of company.
