Full Provincial visit to Mancetter Lodge No.1833 – 2nd June 2016

Posted by admin under News, Poetry

Last night the PGM attended upon Mancetter Lodge of Mark Master Masons to witness a superb double advancement undertaken by the Worshipful Master, Adrian Rawlins and his team. W.Bro.Adrian worked incredibly hard, opening and closing his Lodge, performing a wonderful ceremony followed by Bro.Graham Humphreys presenting the signs and secrets, The Master concluded by presenting the jewel and a beautiful conclusion. Bro.Bill Orton presented the working tools in an excellent manner too!

As we know, no Mark ceremony runs smoothly without a Senior Deacon who truly knows his stuff and Bro. Kevin Garner did an excellent job indeed. All in all another marvellous Mark occasion enjoyed by all. The ‘Provincial Poet’ and Provincial Grand Junior Warden, Bill Clark being moved to write a poem to mark the occasion…

“THE PROVINCIAL GRAND MASTER AND HIS PROVINCIAL TEAM
VISITED MANCETTER MARK MASTER MASON LODGE JUNE 2016
TO WITNESS A  DOUBLE ADVANCEMENT CEREMONY MOST RARE
LODGE MEMBERS PERFORMING THE RITUAL WITH MASONIC CARE
THIS WAS TRULY AN EVENING WHERE THE LODGE MEMBERS WERE WELL VERSED
PERFORMING A DIFFICULT DOUBLE CEREMONY THAT HAD BEEN WELL REHEARSED
FOR BROTHERS ROBERT AND GARY WHO WERE BEING ADVANCED ON THE NIGHT
THE PRESENCE OF THE PROVINCIAL TEAM WAS PERHAPS A FORMIDABLE SIGHT
THE EVENING WE HOPE WAS FOR THEM ONE TO ENJOY
AS THE LODGE BRETHREN WITH SKILL DID THEIR RITUAL DEPLOY
THE MASTER PERFORMING HIS  DUTIES WITH GREAT PRIDE
ABLY SUPPORTED BY LODGE MEMBERS WORKING ALONGSIDE
THE PROVINCIAL TEAM WELL VERSED IN CEREMONIAL AND RITUAL WE KNOW
WERE NEVERTHELESS IMPRESSED BY THE MANCETTER MARK SHOW
WHEREBY THE ADVANCEMENT WAS PERFORMED WITH DIGNITY AND SOME FUN
SHOWING THOSE PRESENT HOW A DOUBLE CEREMONY CAN BE DONE
THANKS ALSO ARE DUE TO THE PROVINCIAL TEAM THE ORGANIST AND GUESTS

FOR THIS WAS WITHOUT DOUBT AN EVENING TO REMEMBER”
