At their Lodge meeting on 28th September 2019 in the Windsor Masonic Centre Christopher Wren had two special events. The first was the planned – an initiation. The second came as a complete surprise and was the presentation of a Bronze Award for the Lodge’s contributions to the Berkshire 2023 Festival.
Bro Marco Canonino, who was proposed by the Worshipful Master WBro Pat Whelan, was initiated in due form by the Worshipful Master. It was a moving ceremony and the members thought the evening was coming to a close when during the Risings, WBro Jim Sampins, The Prov. Grand Director of Ceremonies, stood up.
W Bro Jim announced that the Lodge had exceed the Bronze Level of contributions to the Berkshire 2023 Festival and he had great please to present the Lodge with a commemorative jewel. WBro Jim pinned the jewel on to Charity Steward’s Collar collar and such was the shock of this presentation that the Charity Steward, WBro Steve Jaggs, was speechless for over a minute.
