A GRAND day out – 13th June 2017

Posted by Martin Grahame-Dunn under News, Poetry

THE GRAND LODGE of MARK MASTER MASONS ANNUAL MEETING TUESDAY 13th JUNE 2017

Well what a fantastic day it was when a whole carriage load of Warwickshire Mark Master Masons under the leadership of our PGM, his Deputy, Assistant and a host of other acting and past Provincial officers as well as a good number of Grand Officers and appointees, embarked from Birmingham wth stops along the way to enjoy a most impressive day of ritual and fellowship to ‘mark’ yet another Masonic year in the ‘Happy Degree’. Our Most Worshipful Grand Master, HRH Prince Michael presided over the investiture of not only a new Pro Grand Master but a Deputy and Assistant! Hearty thanks were given to our very own Past Pro Grand Master, MW Bro. Richard Wallis as well as the outgoing Grand Secretary.

Following a lengthy meeting seeing the investiture of Grand Officers (Our Grand Master was on his feet for a very long time!) we departed to enjoy fine food and fellowship. Many chose to dine at the Connaught Rooms and were treated to an excellent meal! After a long but enjoyable day we headed back from Euston with great satisfaction.

And to cap it all off, our Provincial Poet prepared this lovely piece to commemorate such a fine day…

TO LONDON–MARK MASTER MASONS  SEEKING TO PORTRAY
THE MASONIC VALUES THAT BRETHREN HOLD SO DEAR
AS THEY LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER MASONIC YEAR

SOME BRETHREN RETIRING FROM IMPORTANT POSITIONS
HAVING PERFORMED THEIR DUTIES WELL — MAKING DIFFICULT DECISIONS
DESERVE OUR THANKS AND APPRECIATION FOR A “JOB WELL DONE”
WITH BROTHERLY LOVE RELIEF TRUTH AND “FUN”

WE WISH THEM WELL AS THEY ARE REPLACED BY OTHERS
