03 Mar An enjoyable afternoon at Parthenon Lodge
In February, I was invited by a friend, W.Bro. Michael Lunn, to Parthenon Lodge No 1826 meeting at Sutton.
The Lodge was opened by the Worshipful Master, W.Bro. Richard Garbett, who welcomed all the guests and visitors. The main item on the agenda was to Pass Bro. John McDonnell to the Second Degree. The Worshipful Master invited W.Bro. John Ladd, PPGJW, to conduct the Ceremony of Passing. I was asked to act as Inner Guard.
Bro. John was Passed in an excellent manner by W.Bro. John Ladd, assisted by W.Bro. David Major, PPGReg, who presented the Second Degree Tracing Board in his own special way.
After the Ceremony Bro. John was congratulated by the Worshipful Master and W.Bro. John Ladd
The Worshipful Master then invited me to present a Grand Lodge Certificate to Bro. John Shaw, who was Raised at the last meeting in December.
After the Lodge was closed the Brethren of Parthenon Lodge and their guests sat down to a most convivial meal at the Sutton Masonic Centre.
