First Team Visit Of The Year Witnesses Double Pathways Success

22nd February 2023

The first Team B visit of the year saw VWBro Kevin Stannard lead the team to St Peters Lodge No.481, which meets at Maple Terrace Masonic Hall.

The Team, numbering in excess of twenty newly appointed Officers for the year, joined a packed building to witness the Second Degree Ceremonies of Bro Paulo Rafael Bumaniag and Bro Richard Lawrence Persson III, who are both products of the very successful Membership Pathways Scheme. In addition the Lodge are waiting to Initiate a further candidate and at the meeting itself another new member was Proposed and Seconded for Initiation.

The evening was rounded off with a very enjoyable Festive Board finished with the traditional rendition of “Me And My Shadow”, performed by the whole of the Lodge, who encourage the remaining guests present to get up and join in. All in all a very vibrant and enjoyable Lodge evening.

Congratulations from everyone at Northumberland Freemasons to both Paulo and Richard on their progression in the Craft and we wish you well for your Third Degree Ceremonies.
