What a great afternoon it was! The RAM saw the Elevation of two new Brethren in a ceremony which was excellently presented by the Worshipful Commander, W Bro Henry Hobson, APGM. When it came to the Mark, there was also a double Advancement which was undertaken in fine form by the WM, W Bro Tim MacAndrews, APGM. Sees to be a recurring theme here! The support from the Officers in both degrees was exemplary. The Lodge was presented with its Grand Patron Gold Award by the Provincial Grand Master, David Ashbolt in a very sincere manner.
After the meeting everyone enjoyed a magnificent Festive Board right up until the main course was due to be served when the Fire Alarm was sounded and everyone had to vacate. Your correspondent was already leaving at this time so I trust that the rest of the evening went well after what I am sure was just a small hiatus.
