Visit To Lodge Haig-Brown No.3829 – English Constitution

The Worshipful Master of Lodge Gomantak No. 248 and senior brethren of the Lodge were invited by the outgoing Master W. Bro. Dr. Ajay Aras to attend the Installation Meeting of Lodge Haig-Brown No. 3829 – English Constitution, at Clube de Goa, Porvorim , Goa on Saturday, 8th October, 2011.

W. Bro. Alvito Martins was ceremoniously installed as the Worshipful Master of the Lodge by W. Bro. Suresh Nadkarni, IPM, in the presence of R.W. Bro. Percy Driver, District Grand Master, R. W. Bro. Arun Deshmukh, Dy. District Grand Master and other district officers and brethren of lodges under the English Constitution.

It was a pleasure and an educative experience to witness the installation ritual, which was marginally different from the ritual in our lodges. The W.Master conveyed fraternal greetings and good wishes to the newly installed Master and his officers, and congratulations to the outgoing Master on a year  worth remembering.

It was also an occasion to meet and interact with the District Grand Master R.W. Bro Percy Driver, Dy. District Grand Master R. W. Bro. Arun Deshmukh and the brethren of Lodge Haig-Brown and of other lodges under the English Constitution.

Brethren enjoyed the fellowship and festive board after the formal ceremony.
