The Grand Master responded to the welcome and emphasized the Grand Lodge plan that O/Vs were now an integral part of Grand Lodge being active throughout this Jurisdiction.

 

The Exemplification was conducted by selected members from all 3 Lodges. The Grand Master conferred the rank of Past District Grand Superintendent on VWBro. Kevin Paynter a Past Master of Quorn Lodge.
