Looking forward to the Year ahead


13 October 2013

Masefield Lodge No. 2034What could be more of a pick-me-up than to look forward to the start of the new Masonic season? That is, of course, not to say that we haven’t been busy. The preceptors, W.Bros. Robin Symes and John Crowther have completed a guide for “New and Joining Members of Masefield Chapter”. This document covers all the traditions and variations of our ceremonies together with important details necessary for Companions approaching and entering the Chairs of Masefield Chapter. A good bedtime read at only 65 pages long. The Lodge version is still a work in progress.

V.W.Bro. Richard Price won the Masefield Golf tournament and as a result of his sterling efforts now has the pleasure of organising next year’s event. Watch this space, as there could be a change of venue.

Bro. Richard Morris, Senior Warden, Master ElectLodge nights are looming on the horizon, and we shall see for the first time, a member who joined us from the internet being installed as our Worshipful Master. A triumph for our website, and a joy to see Bro. Richard Morris, Senior Warden, Master Elect, being installed into the chair at our October meeting. A first also for W.Bro. G. W. Barrow, Past Provincial Junior Grand Warden, the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, presiding over this meeting, and attending Masefield for the first time in his official capacity. The season looks busy with two Seconds, two Raisings, and the potential for new candidates as well. Visiting Brethren are always welcome and perhaps this is a good point to thank all our longstanding permanently invited guests who follow Masefield throughout the year (I guess it must be the good food and wine).

Brother from the NorthSocial activities begin with our Christmas meeting when again we shall welcome back friends and family to join the festive celebrations, watch out for “That well known Brother from the North”, and, concluding with the “Twelve Days of Christmas” a must for Masefield.

This meeting is one of our biggest Charity raising events usually achieving sums in excess of £700 for worthy causes such as Cancer Research and Help for Heroes.

After the summer recessMuch to look forward to and plenty of work to complete, but our first priority as we begin should be to cater for, assist, teach and support the newer members of the Lodge. After the summer recess it is important to remember their limited experience and to spend time and effort in helping them make a daily advancement in Masonic learning, to fuel their appetite for Freemasonry and stimulate their interest so that in due time they will lead the Lodge as Worshipful Master.

W.Bro. by Robin Symes, P.Prov.J.G.W.
