An Incredible Milestone

A little over 12 months ago The Five of Nine Club was officially launched at the Annual Meeting of Provincial Grand Lodge by RWBro David F Macey, Warwickshire's Provincial Grand Master and the Clubs Patron.  This was the clubs birth, but of course, not its inception.

On the months leading up to the launch a committee was assembled, regular meetings were taking place and a plan for a fun and interesting club for Warwickshire's New and Young Freemasons was being formed.

 
Having formed a small but varied committee the keenness and drive to launch a club that would be immediately successful was clear to see during the many meetings we held when discussing everything from the Clubs name to what events we could host.

Indeed, the committee were very modest about membership uptake.  Initial thoughts were that around 25 brethren would sign up in the first 12 months.  So, it comes as a great surprise and honour that the club can now announce that they have exceeded that, in fact, that target has been completely smashed.  This week the 100th member joined the Five of Nine Club to be a part of what has grown into one of the most vibrant clubs for New and Young Freemasons in England.

 
It’s clear that what we offer as a Club is just what the brethren across the Province are after, events and activities that cover a vast spectrum from Masonic Events to the upcoming Brewery Tour in September means there really is something for everyone.
— WBro Dan Thomas Chairman
 

We asked our 100th Member Bro Dean Broughton an Entered Apprentice of St Peter's Lodge why he had decided to join the club:

 
As someone who is new to Freemasonry becoming a member of the Five of Nine Club was an easy decision to make. It offers me the opportunity to meet brethren at a similar stage of their journey in Masonry, to socialise with brethren both new and established and to take part in some great activities. Being the 100th member of the Club is something I’m incredibly proud of
— Bro Dean Broughton
 

As a special thank you to Bro Dean for becoming our 100th member we have sent him a complimentary pair of Five of Nine Club cufflinks, enjoy!
