Darren Fulton was exalted into Red Triangle Chapter No 3874 in a sincere enhanced exaltation ceremony. The Chapter was duly opened in the usual manner by the three principals, Ian McGovern first principal, second principal Joe Muscroft and Alan Routledge third principal.
Once the initial business of the chapter had been conducted, Ian McGovern asked principal sojourner Tom Lunt to retire and entrust the candidate. Tom re-entered the chapter with the candidate and the ceremony proceeded. Tom led Darren through the exaltation in a dignified manner and was ably assisted by first assistant sojourner Ian Felton. The enhanced explanations and prayers were read by Ian Mc Govern and Alan Routledge.
On completion of the ceremony Darren was then taken to a position in the west, where Tom Lunt gave a flawless explanation of the signs. The ceremony of exaltation being completed, the three principals congratulated Darren and formally welcomed him into the chapter, hoping he would have many happy years of companionship in the chapter.
Ian McGovern thanked everyone that took part in the ceremony, Ian gave a special mention to David Douglas, Ian Felton and Tom Lunt for their part in the ceremony. After the remaining business of the evening was completed, the chapter was closed, and the companions retired to the festive board for a very enjoyable meal and good company.
Joe Muscroft proposed the toast to Darren and welcomed him into the Royal Arch, saying he would be a great asset to the chapter as he has proved to be since joining his Craft lodge. Darren responded to the toast to his health, stating how much he had enjoyed his exaltation ceremony and was looking forward to his future in Royal Arch Masonry.
