W. Bro. Romeo Godines was installed as Worshipful Master of Sir George Clark Memorial Masonic Lodge No. 669 on Saturday 27th, 2018 in the presence of the Deputy Grand Master of Ireland R. W. Bro. Rodney McCurley, and a packed Lodge room of Freemasons from Lodges in a variety of Masonic Provinces and Constitutions.
At the Festive Board, in response to a Toast made to him by the Immediate Past Master W. Bro. Fred Presbitero, the W. Master said:
“Thank you, W. Bro. Fred Presbitero for those kind words and encouragement, and thank you Brethren for all your support. Many thanks also to our trio of singers from the Belfast Lodge 651 W. Bros Rennie and Gardiner McGrath, and Mark Bowman for the Worshipful Master’s song.
A beautiful song, very emotional, and indeed a great memory of this day.
I should, first, express my heartfelt gratitude to W Bro. Ferdinand Gallo for his presentation of the W. Master’s degree today, certainly the best I have ever seen!
Thanks also to our Director of Ceremonies W. Bro. George Megaw for this evenings meeting and his years of excellent service to L669.
Thanks are due to all the Officers and Brethren of Sir George Clark Memorial Lodge No. 669 who have guided me in every way, in this same hall where they initiated, passed, and raised me, to the sublime degree of Masonry, and who trusted, believed and supported me on my journey to the Master’s chair.
Brethren on this the 80th Anniversary of Lodge 669, we remember that unbroken line of Masons who have been installed into the Lodge 669 Master’s chair and led our Lodge forward.
I assure you, that I, in turn, will try with my utmost ability to administer the affairs of our lodge, as well as to promote the interest of our craft and to work for its enlargement and advancement”
The W. Master’s confirmed his chosen charities for support in 2018 are The Belfast Masonic Charity Fund and Diabetes N.I.
