Kent Club – Chairman’s Announcement – May 2020
May 29, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
I hope you and all your families continue to remain well sane and not too sizzled in the lockdown.
Just a few things:
It was mentioned to me at a recent Lodge Zoom meeting that the Kent Club were suggesting digital LOI meetings. As far as I am aware no such suggestion has been made by your committee. I need not comment further as MetGL have pronounced on the subject and I reiterate the announcement here:
LOI – Internet/Zoom etc
It seems I need to reiterate that Lodge (Chapter) meetings and the related ceremonies can only take place with all Brethren physically present in a properly tyled Lodge Room. However, it is acceptable for members to practise such ceremonies, most particularly those aspects that make up the spoken parts of the ritual, over the internet, provided that members refrain from any demonstrations of those elements of the ceremonies covered in the Obligation, or any attempt to reproduce the ‘choreography’ online. Please do not try to hold a genuine Lodge or Lodge of Instruction in a virtual form, but feel free to practise those elements outlined above.
Within the same announcement was news of a scam:
There have been several reports of people receiving emails asking them to update their Porchway password, these emails have come from email@example.com which is not one of our email accounts. Anything from Porchway will come from Prime Administrator.
Finally following a very successful Zoom meeting hosted by RW Bro Stephen Fenton and VW Bro Christopher Clark at which a number of the Met Exec, Including RW Met GM were present it has been decided to repeat the process: The link is here:
