Dennis Campbell, a past master and past district deputy grand master, and marshals selected by each lodge made sure that one by one, row by row, each officer was presented before the Grand Master, before reciting the pledge and being invested with the jewel of office. Installing Chaplain was WB Ted Douglas Sauls Jr. and Installing Secretary was WB Greg Giles, who also was Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Lodges that participated included Bethel #589, Jeru- salem #95, Radiance #132, Grifton #243, Greenville #284, Grimesland #475, Ayden #498, Farmville #517, Crown Point #708, William Pitt #734. is isn't the first time the 6th District has held a joint instal- lation. Last year, eight lodges gathered. But this was the first time all 10 lodges in the district were able to participate. No one attending the district installation went home hungry. Are you ready for some ritual? Contest dates set ree sites means less driving time for participating teams If you love everything about Masonic ritual, this is your year. e annual ritual competition, spon- sored by Wilkerson College #760, is expanding in 2019 to give far- flung lodges a shorter commute and incentive to compete.
