Last month’s meeting of the Lodge of Hope, No. 6703, held on the 24th January, truly was a family affair. The present Master, W.Bro Steven Chapman, stepped aside to let W.Bro Ray Norcross, Past Provincial Senior Grand Deacon, take the chair to initiate his second son, Bro Gavin Norcross, into the Lodge. By pure coincidence, he initiated his first son, Bro Steven Norcross, presently the Junior Deacon, exactly 13 years ago to the day ! Ray has been a member since June 1991 and was Master of the lodge in 1998 He has lost none of his mastery of ritual and produced a ceremony to be proud of, and one that both sons will long remember.
W. Bro. Mark Jackson.
