From Left to Right - W Bros Laurence Varney, Robert Smith, David Smith, Roger Bennett & Mike Hemmingway
Friday 19th May saw a veritable feast of Masonic magnificence at Fishguard concerning the First Degree, which was very well attended.
The WM, W Bro Laurence Varney presented an explanation of the First Degree Tracing Board. This was followed by W Bro Mike Hemingway’s rendering of the Oxford First Degree Tools. Next came W Bro David Smith with the Sheffield working of the Tools. These presentations concluded with W Bro Roger Bennett discoursing on the Emblems, Symbolism and Artistic Techniques of the many First Degree Tracing Boards.
Brethren who were absent missed a unique evening and an opportunity to make an, “...advancement in Masonic Knowledge”. As a visitor, may I congratulate Kemes and all those who contributed, for an informative and memorable evening.
