    Installation 7th March 2012

    There were over 60 Mark Master Masons present at Bridgwater MH for the annual Installation of Quantock Mark Lodge. After a very successful year in the Chair when he represented his Lodge throughout the Province, evinced by the number of brethren present, W.Bro David Attwater made an excellent job of installing his successor Trevor Thomas. The Deputy PGM Ray Guthrie, congratulated and thanked David for all his hard work during his year in the Chair.
    W.Bro Tony Chapman continues his excellent work as secretary of the Lodge for his 23rd year! He is currently the second longest serving secretary on the Province.

    Rhyme and Quantock!

    The ever increasing popularity of the Mark Degree was very much in evidence at Quantock Lodge, 749’s March meeting. When over 60 brethren, including our Provincial Grand Master, David Nelson, packed the Lodge Room for the Installation of Master Elect Brian Eastland happily Installed by outgoing Master Mike Needs after his very successful year in the chair. The Ceremony continued smoothly accompanied by the music of Matt Westley on the organ.
    During the meeting, David Smith, Lodge Charity Steward, presented RW Bro. David with a cheque for £749 towards the PGM’s charity, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, an ingenious match to the Lodge number!
    The happy atmosphere continued into the Festive Board, the peak of which was John Griffin’s toast to the visitors presented in rhyme. John even managed to bring the name of the responder into the ending, much to the surprise of Steve Defries!
    For your amusement and appreciation, John’s words follow:
    “This is our Installation meet, and visitors are many,
    the quality of each guest here, who carries the token penny.
    For I have stood to welcome you, on Keystone Chisel and Mallet,
    sharing with you our Ceremony, friendship and food; you’ve had it!
    Mark Master Masons are all here, contemplate the Keystone,
    and all too soon we will depart, each brother to his home.
    But, what remains will ever stand, memories they can’t destroy,
    this perfect fraternal structure, each individual’s joy.
    So visit us again please do, your toast will never cease,
    and who better to respond to this? Than Worshipful Brother Steve Defries!
    Brothers of Quantock Lodge please stand, and raise your glasses high.
    A health to every visitor, before we say goodbye”!

    A happy ending to a very pleasant evening - Pat Morrisey.
