A Busy Afternoon for Rutlish Chapter

A ballot for Exaltation was taken for W.Bro. Michael Brundle a member of Chiddingstone Lodge No 5542 and Morden Lodge No 4958, which proved in his favour. The MEZ, E.Comp. Tom Harris, invited E.Comp. Chris Eley, an Honorary Member of the Chapter, to conduct the Ceremony of Exaltation.

The signs were explained by E.Comp. Tim Ford and the Mystical Lecture was given in a most sincere manner by E.Comp. Reg Leary, PPGSN.

The next item on the agenda was to elect the Principals for the ensuing year. As M.E.Z., E.Comp. Tony Oaklands; as ‘H’, E.Comp. Andy Gibbs; and as ‘J’, E.Comp. Mike Parrott.

Afterwards, the Companions of Rutlish Chapter and their guests sat down to a most convivial festive board at the Sutton Masonic Hall.
