The LOI festival went extremely well last evening, with four of our recent initiates, assisted by the president, preceptors and past masters, demonstrating a rehearsal of the initiation ceremony, which any Lodge would have been proud to perform.
The Onslow Lodge of Instruction 102, are holding an LOI festival on Friday 17th May at 5.15pm, to enable the younger brethren to demonstrate the ritual they have learn so far. The meeting will be presided over by the president W.Bro Mike Dillon, assisted by his preceptors, W.Bro. Andrew Vallance and W.Bro. Paul Cope.
W.Bro. Gerry Yockney received his certificate for 50 years in the craft. The evening was celebrated with many distinguished brethren.
W.Bro. Gerry and W.Bro. Mike Dillon were made honorary members of Onslow Lodge tonight, in recognition of their dedicated and loyal service to Onslow over many years.
Bro. Sultan Kazi became Onslow’s 130th Master, and is Onslow’s first master to have come through the University Scheme, at Onslow Lodge. He was initiated into freemasonry on the 8th December 2014, and became master on the 14th February 2019.
We initiated another two brethren from the university, at an E.O. meeting of the Lodge on the 1st February 2019.
Despite the bad weather, that meant many brethren were unable to attend, the two brethren were given a good introduction to freemasonry, by the Worshipful master and his team. The two brethren who were drafted in as deacon’s, were themselves only initiated last year, and did an excellent job throughout the ceremony.
