The Provincial Grand Master, John Thompson, attended the Annual Meeting of the Royal and Select Masters of Durham, on Saturday 17 th September ,after a formal invite from the District Grand Master, Michael Graham.
The Meeting was adjourned for John to be admitted and he addressed the Companions present and gave his vision for the immediate future of freemasonry in Durham and its link to all the orders within the province. Michael had previously informed John that the collection at the end of the meeting would be going to Durham Benevolence, so John outlined some of the marvellous donations being made to a wide selection of charities by the fund.
The lunch which followed the meeting was very well attended and John enjoyed the company of heads of other orders who were sat on his table.
Michael responded to the toast from his Deputy, and he thanked everybody for their attendance and support. Michael made special reference to the visit by John and as previously promised presented him with a cheque to the value of £600.00 to go to the Benevolent fund. John thanked everybody for this generous donation.
We are stronger together.
