Hall Barn entertain Wiltshire
The companions of Hall Barn Chapter were honoured by the presence of the Grand Superintendent, M E Comp David Blanchard, of Wiltshire accompanied by 14 of his acting officers for the year and the equivalent from Buckinghamshire accompanying our own Grand Superintendent M E Comp Richard Neale, there were a further 39 companions from Hall Barn including their guests in the temple making a formidable number, certainly one of the best Hall Barn attendances
The companions of Wiltshire were invited by MEGS E Comp Richard to visit a chapter in Buckinghamshire and to our delight we were chosen to show off our exaltation ceremony skills, and I am pleased to say that the ceremony went perfectly to plan
The festive board was a very happy and well run occasion thanks to our Provincial Director of Ceremonies E Comp Richard Reano, the two Grand Superintendents were presented with an engraved whisky glass to commemorate the meeting and the raffle raised £450, a cheque for that amount was presented to M E Comp Richard Neale as part of Hall Barn Chapters donation to the 2013 Festival in aid of the Royal College of Surgeons for the furtherance of the Science of Surgery.
