On Wednesday 5th April 1967, Dennis John Grimsley, CM, PPrGSN of Trisantona Lodge No. 3962 was exalted into the Royal Sussex Royal Arch Chapter No 353.

On Wednesday 5th April 2017, it was planned for the Most Excellent Grand Superintendent and a deputation of Officers of Provincial Grand Chapter to visit Royal Sussex Chapter No 353 to celebrate E Comp Grimsley achieving 50 years membership of Royal Arch Masonry. Unfortunately due to the distance from Dennis’s home and his advancing years he was unable to attend the convocation.

However on Tuesday 20th June, the Deputy Grand Superintendent, E Comp Graeme Hutchinson, PGStB; accompanied by several senior members of Royal Sussex Chapter namely, E Companions Philip Wright PGStB, Bill Simpson PPrGSN and Michael Lewis PProvGStB, travelled to Biddulph, Stoke-on-Trent to mark the occasion in Dennis’s home.

E Comp Grimsley was MEZ in 1980 and appointed PPrGSoj in 1988 and promoted to PPrGSN in 1990. In 2003 he was awarded the Grand Superintendents Certificate of Merit (one of only 7 holders in the Province) and in 2007 retired as Director of Ceremonies of his Chapter after serving 21 years in that office.

E Comp Grimsley was delighted with our attendance and his receipt of the Grand Superintendent’s Certificate in acknowledgement of his 50 years’ service and asked to be remembered to the Companions.
