Sinodun Chapter No 548 - Report : 26th Jan 2018
On Friday 26th January 2018, a meeting was held at Cosener’s House, Abingdon. There were 28 present at the meeting. Regrettably, due to prior engagements, neither the Inspector General or District Recorder were able to attend. The Inspector General had requested Ill\Bro. D Jarvis 32°, to represent him on this occasion.
Following the opening of the Chapter, the minutes of the last regular meeting held on Friday 22nd September 2017, were confirmed as a true record and signed by the MWS.
The Treasurer, E & P Bro. K Jones 18°, presented the accounts for year ending 31st October 2017, which were accepted unanimously by the members, coupled with a vote of thanks to the Treasurer and the Examiners.
The MWS, E & P Bro. M Smith 18°, then proceeded to conduct a very good Enthronement Ceremony of E & P Bro. P Mott 18°, as MWS for the ensuing year.
The new MWS appointed and invested his officers and those elected by the Chapter, with the authority of their office, in a calm and confident manner, which bodes well for the year ahead.
Ill\Bro. D Jarvis 32°, delivered the Address to the Chapter.
The Almoner, E & P Bro. K Ackroyd 18, submitted his report, following which the Alms were collected.
On the Risings, the Recorder delivered an appraisal of all correspondence received since the last meeting.
Discussion took place on whether to move a meeting date, to avoid clashing with another Chapter, but this was not approved by the members.
The Third Point was conducted by the MWS following which he closed the Chapter.
The evening was concluded with yet another excellent and harmonious meal at Cosener’s House
