On Monday evening the lodge was opened in due form by WBro David Duane, PProvSGD and witnessed by WBro Michael Leese, PAGDC, ProvGSec, who is an honorary member of the lodge.
David then proceeded to perform a superb ceremony to Pass Bro Leo Steel to the 2nd degree. David was well supported by his brilliantly team.
WBro John Graham, then expertly described the 2nd degree tracing board with a perfect rendition of the words in a well-timed presentation. This presentation was for the two Fellowcrafts in the lodge as Bro Ben Whitter joined Bro Leo at the tracing board.
This was followed by a friendly social board in the newly extended Hartford Golf Club building.
Another highlight of the evening was the junior warded Ken Hunt PProvSGD playing his Ukulele to the visiting guests in his speech. This was well received by the visitors and added to a very enjoyable evening.
