On 19th October 2017, I visited The Friendship Lodge No. 202 to present our Provincial Grand Master's certificate to W. Bro David William Pengelly, PPrJGW to mark his having served fifty years as a Freemason on that evening having been initiated on the 19th October 1967 by the then worshipful master WBro. Sam West.
I gave a comprehensive resume of Brother David's Masonic and family life and in presenting the certificate I gave the congratulations and best wishes of the Provincial Grand Master R.W. Bro Ian Kingsbury. The brethren warmly applauded.
Brother David then thanked me for making the presentation and the brethren for their support over the last fifty years. Brother Peter Davey, PPrJGW then presented Brother David with a gift on behalf of the Brethren of The Friendship Lodge. All then retired for an excellent Festive Board ending yet again another happy Masonic evening.
