Eighty-five-year-old David Lewellyn Steel is one of the busiest and much loved Freemasons in our Province.
Recently out of the chair (for a second time) of Shakespeare and Equity Lodge No 1018 and already planning to become First Principal of Connaught Chapter in two years’ time, his Connaught commitment will coincide with 50 years of Royal Arch membership.
Over 90 Brethren witnessed and listened to an absorbing portrayal of his 50 years in Craft Freemasonry when he was presented with a jubilee certificate.
David, whose Masonic career began at Anchor Lodge 6502 in Bristol in 1966, is also a Founder and Past Master of the Rugby Football Lodge No 9811.
Past APGM Stuart Cummins chronicled a fascinating history in Craft, Chapter and other Orders in Freemasonry, as well as cricket and umpiring exploits, when he made the presentation at a special meeting of the RFL at Greenhead Masonic Hall, Huddersfield.
David was privileged to welcome three APGMs, and three past APGMs, together with Brethren from Anchor Lodge on a very special night of celebration.
