An Official Visit to Chapter of Vigilance

In November 2018 I was asked by the Treasurer of Chapter of Vigilance, E.Comp. Ron Brick, if I would assist the Chapter by acting as the Director of Ceremonies for their Installation Convocation.

They were receiving an Official Visit from E.Comp. Steve Jones, PAGDC, Assistant to the Provincial Grand Principals. Also present was their Official Visitor, E.Comp. Cliff Fisher, PProvGSoj. As the MEZ was unable to be present E.Comp. Cliff kindly acted as MEZ.

An Official Visit to Chapter of Vigilance

The Chapter was opened by the Acting MEZ, who welcomed E.Comp. Steve Jones on behalf of the Companions of the Chapter. After the minutes were taken I proclaimed E.Comp. J B Ravrani as MEZ for a second year. Comp. Avtar Kudhail, was then presented and obligated as Third Principal.

E.Comp. Steve Jones was invited to occupy the Third Principal’s Chair and E.Comp. Chris Bowers was presented and obligated as Second Principal. After all below the rank of Second Principal had retired from the Chapter E.Comp. Chris was installed as Second Principal by E.Comp. Manji Patel. A Conclave of Installed Principals was declared and Comp. Avtar was admitted and installed as Third Principal by E.Comp. Chris Bowers.

I presented the H and J Robes and Sceptres and the Officers of the Chapter were then appointed and invested by the Acting MEZ.

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