Reserve Forces Lodge meetings in April traditionally take a long time, due to the business which must be transacted and, usually, a third degree ceremony taking place, but this year was different. The Lodge dealt with the various elections as follows:-
W Bro A Watson to serve a second term as Master
W Bro G Watson to continue serving as Treasurer
W Bro Ray Finn re-elected as Tyler
W Bro Mackereth, W Bro Hanson & Bro Johnson re-elected to the F&GP Committee
W Bro Heron & W Bro Wheeler re-elected as auditors
This year the Lodge has been blessed with three candidates rather than two, but as two are serving Officers we have had to work our programme around their availability. Accordingly, instead of a third degree on this occasion Bro Stuart Hamilton was passed to the second degree, before the Lodge was then closed for the summer recess at the earlier time of 1953, rather than nearer 2020.
