We are now looking forward to our first meeting of the masonic calender on 7th November, which will mark the end of an excellent year for our reigning Master, W. Bro. Alan Gardner. As his successor, we will be installing our Master Elect, W. Bro. John Dobson. W. Bro. John is an accomplished ritualist, and is currently in the Chair of his other Essex Lodge. Consequently we will be seeking a special dispensation from Grand Lodge. We will also be presenting a Grand Lodge Certificate to Bro. Kennedy Rath, following his being Raised at the May meeting. This will certainly be a very busy, and no doubt enjoyable meeting.
