Assisted by the Master W Bro Bill Sylvester, W Bro Andrew Warwick initiated his father Ernie into Meridian Lodge 9003 at Guys Cliffe, thereby making himself an instant Lewis.
At an excellent meeting with many visitors, the chapel being full, Andrew conducted the first part of the Initiation, with Director of Ceremonies W Bro Bob Bynt completing it and the Master delivering the Charge to the Initiate.
Ernie has been a frequent visitor to Meridian's social events with his wife Joce who recently died. He decided that as he knew most of the members that he would love to become a member at the age of 83.
He was an excellent candidate during a wonderful ceremony, and was a little bit overcome after receiving the toast to the initiate from his son Andrew.
