Saturday 12th January 2019 saw a real family occasion when St George’s Chapter 3758 met at Wallasey Masonic Hall.
At the request of the MEZ, EComp Steve Simcox, the IPZ, EComp John Lacey assumed the Chair of Z to exalt his son Bro Jamie Lacey into The Holy Royal Arch in the presence of EComp Stephen Christian, PGStB, APGP for Area 1 and a number of visiting Companions.
The standard of the ceremony was first-class and reflected the obvious work that all those involved had put in, and this was acknowledged by EComp Stephen when he asked the Scribe E to endorse the minutes accordingly.
L-R: EComp Peter Wilson (H), EComp John Lacey (MEZ), Comp Jamie Lacey & EComp David Ward (J)

Companion Jamie is the Chapter’s fourth Exaltee in 12mths and the whilst the Chapter is definitely growing, the Convocation was tinged with sadness as all those present marked the Departed Merit of long-time Chapter member EComp William ‘Bill’ McKenzie who sadly passed away just before Christmas.
