Mark grand Officers Mess
The third Grand Officers’ Mess
was held at Clevedon Masonic Hall on Tuesday 13th October 2009. On arrival all were welcomed by our Provincial Grand Master David Nelson together with his Deputy Ray Guthrie. This is an important occasion in the Masonic Calendar and it was good to see the room full of chatting and laughing members.
As usual, the random seating plan invited diners to select a numbered ticket and find the same numbered seat amongst the round tables set out in the dining room. The lunch was to the usual very high standard we have all become accustomed to at Clevedon, and much appreciation was shown to Zena, Neil Hurcum and their team for the super meal.
Near the end of the lunch, David Nelson rose, welcomed the brethren present and proposed the Loyal Toast. He then invited topics for discussion and soon many voices were raised with questions asked and hopefully answered. One of the main items discussed was the new Somerset Mark web-site, (http://www.somersetmarkmason.co.uk). This site is up-dated weekly with news, photographs, forthcoming events and a section for Secretaries and Scribes to down-load the many forms and information required throughout the Masonic year. The date for the next Grand Officers Mess will appear on the future events page. report and photo Pat Morrisey
