Somerset Commanders Lodge News and Events

Installation 2011
Saturday 26th February at 11.00am at the Masonic Hall Burnham on Sea, Commander Matt Westley is anxious to get on with the job and install his successor Tony Snook. However Tony has suddenly been taken ill and he isn't going to be able to be there. Everyone is concerned for our Commander Elect's health but we soon learn that the problem is not too serious and Tony should make a full recovery in a few days. All is well the Commander opens the Lodge completes all other business and closes. The members enjoy their lunch and continue on their way.
The meeting is re-arranged, by dispensation, for Wednesday 9th March at Nailsea, to coincide with the meeting of Nailsea RAM. This time everything goes to plan and W.Bro Matt Westley installs W.Bro Tony Snook as Commander of the Lodge. Unfortunately as the meeting has been only 11 members are present but most stay on for the Nailsea RAM meeting immediately afterwards and enjoy the festive board afterwards.
