It was a night of firsts on Friday May 27th; Bro. David Crisell, the Lodge of St. Michael's newest made Brother, made his maiden visit by accompanying W. Bro. Wheeldon in attending the regular meeting of the Ridings Tablers' Lodge no 9586 at the Masonic Hall, Trinity Lane, Beverley. The evening was also the first Representative visit of W. Bro. David Frank Johnstone PJGW and finally and most importantly it was the First Degree ceremony of Mr Daniel Farmer.

The ceremony was carried out to a high standard by W. Bro. Stephen Hastings and his team and the excellent Festive Board afterwards was filled with laughter and song ~ A really good advert for Freemasonry in this Province.
