Bro. Jack took the floor and gave a most informative and fascinating lecture on “The George Washington National Masonic Memorial, Alexandria, Virginia”. It has to be said that Bro Jack’s enthusiasm for his subject shone through and his depth of knowledge of the life and times surrounding Bro George Washington and the area of Virginia at that time was thoroughly enjoyed by all. This was demonstrated to the full as Bro Jack received and responded to the many varied questions posed by the Dunbartonshire brethren.
Bro. Leckenby congratulated Bro Jack on behalf of the Province for his presentation and the assembled brethren ensured Bro Jack was left in no doubt of their appreciation through a prolonged applause.
A vote of thanks was proposed by Bro. John R McCormack and the brethren responded in a very enthusiastic manner particularly conveying their appreciation to the event organisers, the caterers, DKL No 18 and the staff of Dumbarton Masonic Sports and Social Club.
