Emulation Ritual To Be Demonstrated in Salt Lake City

MW:. Glen A. Cook, Grand Master of Masons in Utah, has announced that Sentinel Lodge No. 4707, of Stockport, England will demonstrate the Fellow Craft degree using Britain's Emulation Ritual at the Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Utah on Friday, January 30th, at 1:15. That evening Alex Beaton will be in concert at the Masonic Auditorium in Salt Lake City.

I had the extreme pleasure of being invited to speak to the brethren of Wasatch Lodge No. 1 in Salt Lake City last year, and made many new friendships there. If you have the opportunity, go visit their magnificent building, and see this special presentation. Emulation is very different from the Preston/Webb/Morris ritual worked in most US Masonic jurisdictions.

Sentinel Lodge No. 4707 presented the EA degree last year at the GLofU's annual communication—not surprising, since Glen travels between the US and the UK on a regular basis (he also has a home in Scotland), and served as the Worshipful Master of that lodge in 2006-7. In September, 2007, he was invested with the rank of Past Provincial Junior Grand Warden for the Province of Cheshire, United Grand Lodge of England.

Congratulations to Grand Master Cook on an outstanding year as Grand Master. He has much to be proud of.
