50 Year Certificate Presented at Yenton Chapter No 3484

April’s meeting of Yenton Chapter No 3484 provided the perfect occasion for E. Comp W David Hedgecock to receive his 50 year certificate. In the absence of the ME Grand Superintendent on other masonic business, E. Comp David W Old, the senior member of the Chapter reprised E. Comp David’s Masonic career and presented him with his certificate and badge.

He was Initiated into the Lodge of Hospitality in West Lancashire in April 1961, Passed and then Raised in the following November and December following which he was Exalted into Ionic Chapter, again in West Lancashire, on 15th April 1966. Having moved to Minworth, he Joined the Lodge of Felicity in Warwickshire and E Comp David later joined Yenton Chapter in February 1979 succeeding to the Chair of First Principal some 8 years later. He is the current Third Principal at 83 yrs of age!

He received his first Royal Arch appointment as Acting Provincial Grand Standard Bearer in 1991 followed by promotion to Past Provincial Deputy Grand Sword Bearer in 2002 and then to Past Provincial Grand Scribe N in 2009.

He is presently a member of Thornhill Lodge No 7137 as well as Yenton Chapter and Warwickshire First Principals’ Chapter No 4538.

All in attendance enjoyed a wonderful presentation by E Comp David Old and having taken receipt of his Certificate, E Comp David was afforded a much deserved round of applause following which after being proclaimed he was inducted into the J Chair! Many congratulations to this worthy Companion.
