They’re Raising & Patching at John Bunyan Lodge

On Saturday night, Bro Jeff Boote (Beda President) had the pleasure of patching 3 brothers into the Chapter as Full Widows Sons in the presence of the PGM, RW Bro Tony Henderson, who is an honorary member.
The patching followed a double raising within the John Bunyan Lodge of Bro’s Mark Lane and Russ Shaw. Both these brothers joined Beda as associate members having no masonic links. Through their riding with the chapter, they enquired about Masonic Membership and were initiated into the craft. Their journey to MM was completed last night in the double raising. The past president of Beda, W/Bro Chris Handley had the pleasure of being in the chair and conducting the ceremony.
Directly after the meeting, the temple was cleared, and the members of Beda remained to assist with the patching.
W/Bro Fred “Kipper” Herring was patched alongside Bro’s Mark “Wildcat” Lane and Russ “Coach” Shaw. It was a great evening with the fun continuing at the festive board.
