Coming Events and announcements in Chapter
Wednesday 24th September, 2014 was the start of the new Royal Arch Masonic season for Shoeburyness Chapter. Not only was it the Installation of the new Principals but was also the Scribe E's birthday, if he didn’t buy you a drink don’t be so shy at the next meeting. E Comp Derek Goodyear was finally installed as MEZ after being a member of the Chapter for 21 years and let’s hope that we can see him exalt a candidate this year.
Sadly E Comp Geoff Singer was too poorly to attend the
meeting but our love and best wishes are with him. E Comp Ken Jordan was installed
as Third Principal finally giving up the Treasurer’s job, a role he took on in
1987 with only 3 years off to go through the chairs the first time. As I
mentioned the Treasurer this role has now been filled by Comp Jim Parker. Jim
has been a not very active member since 1989 so it’s fantastic to see him back
in the fold and enjoying his Royal Arch Masonry.
Following the meeting 32 companions, 19 members and 13 guests dined in convivial company with E Comp Derek providing the port. One of the shining stars of the evening was Comp Kevin Blyther answering the questions faultlessly at the festive board.
Companions please be on the lookout for new members they are our life blood and let’s see Derek and Kevin at work.
