During a short business meeting of the St Laurence RAM Lodge W Bro Jim Willis presented the Lodge with a new Royal Ark Mariner Tracing Board, a gift to the Lodge from himself and The Worshipful Commander W Bro Eric Lee.
Following the RAM meeting the Mark Lodge was opened for the Advancement of Bro David Small, a most enjoyable ceremony with the Worshipful Master Richard Field, very well supported by lodge members in the presentation of the Working Tools and a wonderful explanation of the Signs.
Yet another meeting where the Provincial Team Representation extended into double figures, confirmation of the willingness of the Active Officers to support lodges throughout the province.
The PGM, Rt W Bro Eric John Rymer, had a busy evening, first with the presentation of two Grand Lodge Certificates and later in presenting a short informative talk relating to the duties of a Provincial Grand Master.
A very good meeting well attended, finished off with an excellent festive board during which more than £400 was raised in support of local charity.
The lodge Almoner reported on the health of W Bro Norman Morris and a former Member and Secretary Colin Coldicott. We join the lodge members in extending very warm and sincere best wishes to them both.
