 Memorable Cornelius Chapter Enthronement

Saturday 16th March 2019 witnessed the wonderful occasion when the remarkable 93 year old Ill Bro Bill Hale enthroned Ill Bro Ion Murphy into the chair of the Cornelius Rose Croix Chapter No 1091 in Cardigan. 

There cannot be many Brethren within the Province that do not know Bill and admire his superb command of Masonic ritual so it was with little surprise that all present were moved by the most sincere and accurate ceremony that Bill conducted.  

The Chapter provides the opportunity for Brethren to entertain their wives for lunch in the pleasant Cardigan dining room which is so enhanced by Bills wife Freda who always delights with her superb flower arrangements that adorn the dining tables.
