The Connaught Chapter No 3573 celebrated 100 years of existence with a special meeting at the Frome Masonic Hall. The Grand Superintendent of the Provincial Grand Chapter of Somerset presented a Centenary Charter to the first Principal of the Chapter.

The meeting was honored by the attendance of the Grand Superintendent, his senior Officers, and 15 members of the Provincial Team. The Grand Superintendent dedicated a new Chapter Banner and extracts of the history of the Chapter were given, followed by an interesting oration on the origins and uses of banners in Freemasonry.

The evening was rounded off with a festive board and toasts, with all companions being gifted a whiskey tumbler to commemorate the event.
