Wycombe Chapter present the Altar of Companionship to Bowen Chapter

The Travelling Altar of Companionship arrived at a Regular meeting of the Bowen  Chapter No 948 on Thursday the 5th of March 2020. The meeting was held at the Beaconsfield Masonic Centre, Beaconsfield.  The Travelling Altar of Companionship was accompanied by members of Wycombe Chapter No 1501 who had received the Altar at their last meeting from members of Bourne End Chapter No 7943.  The travelling Altar has increased visiting between Chapters and the further enjoyment of companionship. The Altar will travel on from Bowen Chapter to Grenfell Chapter No 3077 on Monday the 27th of April 2020.

At the meeting, Bowen Chapter exalted, W Bro Bob Leslie Swayne, a Past Master of Bowen Lodge, who was raised in April 2000 in Bowen Lodge No 2816, into the Chapter. The companions present at the convocation were treated to a well worked and warm ceremony led by their First Principal John Sims who’s delivery of the ritual was outstanding! Bob really appreciated the ceremony and warm welcome he received.

The exaltation of Companion Bob was followed by a very good festive board, good speeches, good food, good wine, very good companionship.
