W. Bro Graham Maynard receiving 50 years certificateOn Friday 13th October 2017, I visited The St Margaret’s Lodge No. 6128 at the Masonic Hall, Topsham to present our Provincial Grand Master’s certificate to W.Bro Graham Roger Maynard, PPrGSuptWks marking his having served fifty years as a Freemason on that evening.

I spoke at length about Brother Graham’s Masonic and family life reminding the Brethren that Graham’s father Brother Dennis was the Junior Deacon at the time of his initiation and able to conduct him around.

Graham now lives in Chepstow and has joined Sriguil Lodge No. 2186 in the Province of Monmouthshire and one of the Brethren of that Lodge came to support Graham on his special evening.

In presenting the certificate I gave the best wishes and congratulations of Rt W.Bro Ian Kingsbury, The Provincial Grand Master for Devonshire. The brethren applauded in the usual way.

I was then able to present a gift to Brother Graham on behalf of the Brethren of the Lodge. Brother Graham thanked me for the research I had put in and for the way in which I had made the presentation. We all then retired for an excellent Festive Board, all enjoying a drink on Brother Graham, thus ending yet another happy Masonic evening.
