At the Installation Convocation of Holte Chapter No 1246 on 17th February 2015, the Deputy Grand Superintendent, E.Comp. John F R Handley, who was also the Scribe.E of the Chapter introduced an additional surprise item to the ‘Agenda’ before the Installation ceremony commenced when E.Comp. I. Claude Woodhouse P.Prov.G.S.N. was presented with the M.E. Grand Superintendent’s Certificate of Merit.

Claude, who will be celebrating his 90th birthday only a week later was delighted at the surprise but was rendered speechless by the presentation!

At the Festive Board later a wonderful, personalised 90th birthday cake was presented to Claude accompanied by a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday To You!” A super addition to the Chapter’s first Convocation in their new venue!
