The end to a great week last evening in Ryde with a visit to Vectensian Lodge for the occasion of their Proclamation Festival. Bro. Mick Jones was an excellent bear carer on what was a particularly important evening for him as he was installed as the lodge Junior Warden. A special privilege to visit this lodge as it is the mother lodge for APGM Dave Perkis and the current Provincial Junior Grand Warden, W.Bo. Tim Lewis who is also the Lodge Director of Ceremonies, both of wh...om were in attendance and as the evening progressed there were photo opportunities with them both. W.Bo. Arthur Niblett was proclaimed Master of the Lodge as he commenced his second year as a fine leader. Arthur went on to install the officers of the lodge with aplomb and good humour, there was no doubting the happiness among all the brethren and guests. W.Bro. Paul Baker delivered the address to the wardens and W.Bro. Mike Davies delivered the address to the brethren. Paul was master in 2013 and Mike in 2012 so it was excellent to see the lodge involving recent past masters in such important parts of the evenings proceedings, Vectensian are certainly embracing provincial initiatives.
