Welcome to the Mark News Archive
New Year's Honours Congratulations
Many brethren and their wives in North East Somerset will know Eileen, not only for her work with the Somerset Masonic Widows Association but also for her very interesting and humorous talks about her experiences working at Bristol Airport. Her drive and determination helped to establish the Widows association and it has continued to flourish with her in the Chair. Eileen is also the first to volunteer to help with the Somerset stand at the annual Cadogan Court Fair at the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institute Home in Exeter. It is great to see this award going to someone who has given so much.
A quote from Stuart Hadler, Provincial Grand Master, "Eileen is a fine example of selfless dedication to the needs of others whether in her local community or more especially the Masonic Widows Association in Somerset. Her drive and commitment has been the predominant factor in the success of the Association over the last 15 years. She has made a positive difference in the lives of countless widows and their families and to many other needy people through her energetic campaigning and fund-raising for a range of charities and support projects."
