Bob the Banner BearerPosted: September 26, 2013
I was very busy yesterday as I was attending the annual meeting of the Masonic Province of Hertfordshire, which is where my Mother Lodge is situated. The meeting took place at Freemason’s Hall, Great Queen Street, in central London, and I was appointed to the rank of Provincial Grand Standard Bearer. (Luckily being a Masonic Provincial Grand Standard Bearer is not as dangerous as being a regimental standard bearer during the sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, or nineteenth centuries. To my knowledge no one is going to be shooting at me … at least I hope they won’t!)
This role means that over the coming year I will be attending meetings at numerous Masonic lodges throughout the Province of Hertfordshire as part of the Provincial ‘team’. Being Provincial Grand Standard Bearer is a great honour, and I am looking forward to meeting lots of new people over the forthcoming year.
