On Tuesday 6th November, the Royal Yorkshire Lodge No. 265 conducted a ceremony of initiation for Bro Peter Karkoszka. The ceremony was well attended with 25 visitors and members in attendance, including the candidate’s brother-in-law from the Lodge of Hope No. 302. Bro Peter followed his long time friend Bro Dave Connor into the lodge who was initiated only a month earlier.
The candidate’s proposer, who was also the Worshipful Master, said “it was an excellent ceremony and I am very proud to have been the one to initiate my friend”. WBro Leslie Allinson seconded the candidate.
The meeting was followed by an excellent three course festive board. Bro Peter in replying to a toast said “I didn’t know what to expect but it was a very enjoyable evening”. He went onto say that he was very happy to following his friend Bro Connor into the lodge and looked forward to being an active member of the lodge.
