Drury Lane Lodge, No. 2127, witnessed a special event at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane when Immediate Past Master Peter Goetz installed Daniel Aherne
He is the third American to occupy the chair, following brothers Michael and Alex MacIver.
Some 10 years ago, the Grand Lodge of California requested a team from Drury Lane to demonstrate the Third Degree ritual; in turn, the American trio visited the London lodge, and enjoyed themselves so much that they joined and progressed through the various offices.
Despite the distance, and the difference in ritual, they still manage to attend nearly all the meetings.
