Burbach Member celebrates 100th Birthday

Cyril 100th Birthday

January 4th this year, sees our oldest member, Bo. Cyril Staley, celebrating his 100th birthday. All the Lodge members congratulate Cyril on reaching this wonderful milestone and becoming, we believe, the first Burbach member to do so.
Cyril was initiated into the Lodge at the “young” age of 91. His son Martin, a Past Master and currently D.C., then took the chair to initiate Cyril in a warm and moving ceremony.
Our photo, taken outside the house which Cyril built in the 1960’s, shows Martin presenting to Cyril, on behalf of the Lodge Members, a card and cheque as a present to make the occasion. As with most other milestones in this current situation, celebrations to mark this wonderful day had to be put on hold but no doubt his family and friends will all raise a glass to Cyril.
