Installation of W.Bro.Johny Davis
W.Bro. Davis was installed as Master of Royal Hanover Lodge 1777 by outgoing Master W.Bro. De-Honri.
W.Bro. Davis was installed as Master of Royal Hanover Lodge 1777 by outgoing Master W.Bro. De-Honri. W.Bro.De-Honri has had a good year in the chair and as he became the Immediate Past Master he installed W.Bro Davis with some great ritual. W.Bro.Davis is our youngest ever Worshipful Master, replacing that honour bestowed upon W.Bro Peter Parsons some 44 years ago.
W.Bro. Davis has been a regular to LOI, which was proven by his delivery of installing his officers for the coming year. This year we see some of our younger members take up officer positions. Special thanks were given to W.Bro.Bob Skinner who is stepping down this year as our Chaplin and W.Bro Derek Healy stepping down as Almoner, both of which has given many years of wonderful service and as such were presented within open lodge with an engraved United Grand Lodge of England Tercentenary Jewel each.
Charity News from W.Bro.John Taylor
Our charity steward W.Bro John Edward Taylor delivered some great news with regards to Royal Hanover Lodge and its members supporting The 2020 Festival and as such we were presented with a Patron's sash, which can be seen in front of the WM placed with the VOTSL. Grand Patron jewels where also presented to Bro.Jackson and W.Bro.Marshal-Jobson. It was then proposed that the lodge make a donation to take Royal Hanover Lodge 1777 to Grand Patron status and this was approved in open lodge, and I am sure we will hear more at our next January meeting.
At LOI we took up a collection to purchase the Tercentenary Master's Collar Ornament and this was presented to the WM and will be proudly displayed on the Master's collar from now on.
Thank you to our Visitors
We would also like to thank our many regular visitors for helping make this memorable meeting, but also including Worshipful Master W.Bro.Treanor and Secretary W.Bro.Lewis of Lodge Of Harmony 255.
The launch of Royal Hanover Lodge Mobile App
To round of off what has turned out to be a great meeting, we were also pleased to announce the launch of our own mobile app, which allows members to check in to LOI's, see the latest Lodge and Chapter news, pick up the latest Summons and browser the archive of previous summons. We also have a photo gallery and a very useful calendar for all our meeting dates, both social and Masonic. It is already showing signs of being a success as we have people checking into LOI's, chatting etc, having nearly 30% of the lodge already signed up in a matter of days.
