Our regular meeting in April was held on Thursday 17th April 2014 at Freemasons’ Hall, Leicester instead of the third Friday of the month as normal as this year it fell on Good Friday.
We were extremely honoured to welcome the Assistant Provincial Grand Master, VWBro Peter C Kinder PGSwdB to our meeting who is also the Provincial Universities’ Scheme Liaison Officer. Among our other visitors was the Leicestershire & Rutland Light Blue Club which is the junior Masons social club for the Province.
At the meeting, Bros. Peter (a University of Leicester Law graduate) and Eric (a PhD student at the University of Leicester) were Raised to the degree of a Master Mason in a superbly conducted double Ceremony. Our congratulations go to both of them reaching this wonderful milestone in Freemasonry.
The evening was completed by an excellent Festive Board where we enjoyed a three course meal of pumpkin & chorizo soup, Highland chicken and seasonal vegetables followed by Boston pecan pie.
At the meeting, a total of £116 was donated by the members for the benefit of the Rainbows Children’s Hospice based in Loughborough.
This was the last regular meeting before the Summer break and the Master, WBro Dipak Chauhan, wished all our members a wonderful Summer.
