W. Bro. Tim MacAndrews and a goodly number of Provincial Grand Officers were treated to an excellent display of ritual in both the Mark and the Royal Ark Mariner meetings on the penultimate day of March. The evening started off with Brother Roger Hare being installed as Worshipful Commander of the RAM lodge who then went on to appoint and invest his officers for the coming year in a sincere way.
This was followed by an Advancement ceremony at the Mark meeting which was carried out by the Master, W. Bro. Jerome Hogg and his team of officers in an excellent manner which was much appreciated by all present.
After the usual team photographs the brethren retired to the festive board at which the Worshipful Master presented a cheque to W. Bro. Tim MacAndrews for the sum of £250 in support of the Provincial Executive team who are girding their loins and preparing to partake in the MBF walk on the 6th May.
