W Bro Michael Dennis Installs his Son as Master of the Lodge

W Bros Michael and Matthew Dennis with the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, R W Bro Colin Harris

Our Installation meeting this year was attended by nearly eighty brethren including the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master, R W Bro Colin Harris. They came to witness our Senior Warden, Bro Matthew Dennis being Installed as Master of the Lodge by his father W Bro Michael Dennis.  

Matthew was initiated in 2001 and has steadily worked through the various Offices, eventually culminating in the top job. Despite having had the opportunity of getting there a year earlier it was his wish to have served in all the Offices prior to becoming Master and to this end W Bro Alan Verney, already himself a past master, took the chair last year to enable this to happen; inviting Michael to temporarily occupy his chair in order to Install his son.

The emotionally-charged ceremony was conducted with both dignity and good humour, yet retained the absolute solemnity befitting the occasion. It was a credit to all those who took part.

Later on in the proceedings, another landmark in the history of the East Hertfordshire Lodge was noted by the presentation of a Certificate of Service by the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master to W Bro Brian Mills; celebrating 50 years in Freemasonry. It truly was an unforgettable evening.
