Tonight the members of the Lodge of Happiness gathered to initiate our first internet candidate into the Lodge. A joyous occasion for any Lodge and roundly celebrated by all those in attendance. However the meeting was also another poignant occasion – the previous day Lodge members had attended the funeral of our own W.Bro Bernard who passed away the previous week. Coming so soon after the passing of W.Bro Arnold, the Lodge has now lost two great, valued and beloved members of the Lodge in short order.
Having such a joyous occasion as welcoming a new member into our Lodge certainly lifted the spirits. Our new made Brother Tony had an excellent evening and thanked Brethren for the warm welcome he had received from the Lodge of Happiness.
All being well we should welcome two more candidates into the Lodge in the new year.
