Ariel Lodge – In The Family Way

Members and Guests of Ariel Lodge, No. 5596

Keeping it in the family has a special resonance for freemasons and it is always gladdening to see Father and son meet in the same Lodge.

Even better when your son in law also joins the proceedings.

Assistant District Grand Master of Barbados and East Caribbean with family members

So, for Ariel Lodge, No. 5596 this was a special and unusual occasion that took place on October 29th 2021: a Double Initiation of two family members.

These were Mr Brandon Amechi and his brother-in-law Mr Theodoros Shantonas.

Not only that but W Bro Dr Lutz Amechi PJGD, ADGM (District of Barbados and East Caribbean) was present to see the Initiation, which no doubt gladdened his heart.

Theodoros is married to W Bro Lutz’s daughter.

Both candidates were proposed by W Bro Keith Gregory and seconded by his son W Bro Luke Gregory, who also conducted the ceremony.

It is always refreshing to welcome younger men into a Lodge.

Brandon is aged 27 and works as a Gate Engineer for a company specialising in the Installation, repair and maintenance of access gates to properties, and Theodoros 29 is an Account Engineer for an organisation offering print solutions IT, communications and document management.

This occasion was relished by the members of the Lodge as being very special not only for Ariel Lodge but for the two new Brethren who will surely savour this distinctive day as they move forward in their masonic careers.
