A busy evening for Bon Accord TI, with an unexpected but welcome visitor and dining with Albatross Lodge
With a good turnout of Members and Guests it was great to be able to receive, unofficially, the Provincial Grand Master, Tom Quinn. The RAM meeting was as busy as the Mark with the Installation of the new Commander, Bro, Peter Lambert by W.Bro. John Smith Plus an Elevation. That of Bro. Carl Ryalls. Our PGM, Tom, was able to stay with us until the Mark Meeting and took an active role in the Royal Ark Mariner also. The work, in both ceremonies was of a very high standard and was delivered in a warm, friendly and humorous manner by all. The Mark saw the installation of W.Bro Oliver Coddington by W Bro. Martin Hawley than a double Advancement of Bros. Moarice Sharp and Darin Edmunds which was undertaken in a relaxed and very competent manner by the new WM, W.Bro Oliver Coddington Deputy Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies. Afterwards we dined in conjunction with the Albatross Lodges who sporting their rather fetching green shirts with the hope of blending in with the fairways. It didn’t work but we all had a most enjoyable festive board where all the usual Mark toasts were taken in high good humour.
Roll on the next one!
