Monday 1st February, we were honoured by the presence of W.Bro Darren Phipps, of Marengo Lodge No.138, Illinois, USA as a guest of our Junior Warden, Bro. Andrew Steele. Marengo Lodge, under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Illinois, meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month in the home town of Marengo.
Being the first time Darren has visited a Lodge in the UK, he was treated to an excellent second degree, demonstrating the subtle differences between British and American Freemasonry.
All that remains is for us to do a return visit to Marengo Lodge!
