On the 4th February 2020 eight W. Brethren and Brethren, from Leeds and Otley made a surprise visit to Swan of Avon Lodge No.2133 in Stratford -upon –Avon to witness the Installation of Brother Jose A. Perez Diez into The Chair as Master of his Mother Lodge.
The connection with W. Bro. Perez Diez is that he is also a member of Royal Wharefdale Lodge No. 1108 as well as in Prudence Chapter No. 2069 (which quite a few of our brethren are members of).
As well as the Yorkshire Masons who attended there were Masonic friends of Jose from New Zealand, Spain, Italy U.S.A and two from Germany who all flew in to be part of this unique occasion.
It goes to show the high esteem that Jose is held in by all who know him.
Brother Jose had no idea any of the visitors were attending; it was a complete and utter surprise,
We all were made very welcome by the Brethren of Swan of Avon, it was without doubt a truly memorable time enjoyed by all.
