On Friday 3rd March, Rural Philanthropic Lodge #291 initiated Daniel Watkins in what was a superb ceremony, witnessed by over 53 Brethren, including 12 members of Estune Lodge on their fraternal visit. The picture above shows Dan, Will and his Wardens together with the Master and 12 members of Estune.
Will Human and his officers conducted a near perfect ceremony and Dan was an excellent candidate, another fine addition to this historic Lodge.
Estune and Rural Philanthropic have now visited each others Lodges and have struck up a real bond, especially as RPL 291 as the great great great Grandmother of Estune, as pointed out by the current Master of Estune John Wyatt.
It has been agreed that this will now become a “regular fixture” of the meetings in February and March each year, for the two Lodges, with the challenge of who can bring more on the visit, so far its 13 from RPL and 12 from Estune.
