Thackeray Lodge News and Events
PGM, John Morgan and Stuart Boyd the Provincial Chaplain unveil the new collars and dedicate them for use in the Lodge.
Commander of Yatton RAM, Terry Hart presents the Travelling Ark to Commander Geoff Seaman. (great name for a Royal Ark Mariner!)
The Rev Bro Stuart Boyd gives a thought provoking oration regarding the use of collars of office.
At the meeting on 4th October 2010 W. Bro. Neil Hurcum installed his successor W. Bro. Alan Douglas into the Commander’s chair in most confident manner, which gave all fortunate enough to see it a splendid example of the Royal Ark mariner installation ceremony. All present were most impressed, not least the newly installed Commander. With the new officers duly invested the Lodge looked set for an enjoyable and rewarding 12 months ahead. The ceremony concluded with a presentation of the Royal Ark Mariner Charge after Installation, which had not been heard in the Lodge for many years.
The meeting as always was a warm and friendly one, an atmosphere contributed to by the presence of W. Bro. Ray Guthrie Deputy PGM, along with a good number of visitors.
The Lodge looks forward to the December meeting at which we are to welcome the R.W. Provincial Grand Master along with the Provincial team on an official visit, as well as receiving the travelling ark from the Commander and brethren of Irwin Lodge of RAM No. 119.
Thackeray Lodge continues in good heart, and hopes to weather the storm of increased levies with minimum damage, and looks forward to future calmer waters.
