A Candidate for Chapter of Vigilance

In May I was asked by the Scribe E of Chapter of Vigilance, E.Comp. David Dennison-Smith, if I would assist the Chapter by helping to Exalt a Candidate.

A Candidate for Chapter of Vigilance

The Chapter was opened by the MEZ, E.Comp. Manji Patel, and a ballot was taken for Bro. Philip Mole a Master Mason of Louis Marchesi Lodge No. 9558. This proved in his favour and the MEZ invited me to occupy the First Principal’s Chair to Exalt Bro. Philip.

I was ably assisted by the Principal Sojourner, Comp. Avtar Kudhail, who did an excellent job as Principal Sojourner. The signs were presented in a very sincere manner by the Chapter Janitor, E.Comp. Eric Tate, to complete a most enjoyable ceremony.

Afterwards, the Companions of Chapter of Vigilance and their guests sat down to a most convivial festive board at the Surbiton Masonic Hall.
