The members of Lathom Abbey Lodge No 6286 gathered at Ormskirk Masonic Hall and were joined by a good number of visitors for their regular meeting.
After the opening of the lodge and the formalities of lodge business the WM announced that the next business was to initiate Christopher Kevin Smith and asked Mike Smith to occupy the chair of the lodge, which he readily accepted.
Christopher was then admitted and initiated into the lodge in a sincere and warm manner by his father. He was ably assisted by members of the lodge and the tools were delivered by John Plummer in an excellent manner.
This was a family affair as it was when Mike had joined the Craft as he was initiated into Acanthus Lodge No 4624 by his father, keeping up a long-held family tradition.
The charge was given by Mike Melling, a long-standing family friend in an exceptional manner.
The lodge business being ended the WM closed and the members and guests retired to the usual high standard of catering at the festive board.
