WM – WBro Michael Holt PPAGDC
On 16th February, members of the District Team, led by the District Chairman WBro Peter Rhodes attended the regular Lodge meeting of Samaritan Lodge No 286 at Bacup Masonic Hall. On a very cold and wet evening the District Team received a warm and genuine welcome by the Lodge brethren in the bar downstairs before the meeting started. An equally warm welcome was extended to WBro Rhodes in the Lodge room by the WM, WBro Michael Holt, and after the customary introductions, the business of the evening commenced.
The Brethren of Samaritan Lodge opened and closed in full in all 3 degrees along with an explanation of the working tools in each degree. The tools, presented by Bro. Edward Wade, WBro. Peter Marsh and Bro. William Marsh were all excellently delivered. The District Chairman, WBro Peter Rhodes congratulated the Brethren on what was an excellent and sincere ceremony.
The Festive Board afterwards was a relaxed, jovial and friendly affair, complemented by an excellent meal and a few songs.
