L. to R. William Lennox, James Glover, Mervyn Glover with the Prov. Deputy Grand Master.
UNIQUE EVENING AT UNITY MASONIC LODGE NO. 531 MONEYMORE
On Tuesday 17th January 2017 at the Annual Installation of Officers, a very unique event took place after the installation ceremony had taken place. R.W.Bro. Raymond Robinson, R.W. Provincial Deputy Grand Master of Londonderry and Donegal presented W. Bro. Mervyn Glover with his 75-year certificate.
W.Bro. Mervyn Glover was initiated on 12th February 1942 and was installed Worshipful Master in 1956. His chauffeur on the occasion was R.W. Bro. Tommy Lund, Coalisland Masonic Lodge No. 300. You might think these Brethren are not safe to be on the road but you would be very wrong. Mervyn and Tommy won the 1954 Circuit of Ireland Rally almost 63 years ago!
One could say that was a unique event in itself but there’s more.
The youngest and most recent Master Mason, Bro. William Lennox, was also presented with his Master Mason Certificate on the same evening; two certificates 75 years apart.
I think you would agree that it certainly was a rather unique occasion.
