Sunday the 8th November saw the actual date that Knaresborough Priory Lodge no 4171 was consecrated 100 years ago.
Obviously due to the times that we are living in the official celebrations of this milestone has had to be cancelled however, the Brethren of the Lodge felt that this momentous event couldn't be just ignored so a special Zoom meeting was held on that date at which many of the Brethren and Honorary Members were in attendance.During this get together a brief history of the Lodge was given and then many memories of the Lodge were exchanged.
At 4pm (time of the consecration meeting) all raised glasses to the Lodge.
Even though the Lodge currently is unable to celebrate on a face to face basis plans are now been put in place to arrange for a full celebration to held in 2021 and further details are to follow.
Last night, 13th October 2020 we hosted our usual weekly Lockdown Zoom Lodge, with 31 brethren in attendance, along with two guests. However this wasn’t a normai, well at least not ‘New Normal’ normal, weekly meeting.
We were all delighted to attend a very special occassion. We were all there as Brother David Goldsbrough received his 50 year certificate EXACTLY 50 years to the day since he was initiated into Freemasonry.
It was lovely that the Master for the night, Brother Christian Higgins, is a personal friend of Bro. Goldsborough going back many, many years, and he was able to deliver a warm and very personal ‘toast’ to David. In return Bro David spoke about some of his time in The Craft and how much he has enjoyed from it. Whilst not the ideal ceremony for such a wonderful achievement, it was definitely a special night. Congrats, Bro David.
