Installation Meeting 2015 

The Royal Ark Mariner Lodge held its annual Installation meeting on Thursday 10 September 2015.

The RW Provincial Grand Master was represented by an old friend of the Lodge, namely WBro Colin Pascoe, who was soon put to work presenting Bro Neil Rossiter with his Grand Lodge Certificate. WBro Colin presented the Certificate with his customary aplomb and Bro Neil can be seen below proudly displaying his Certificate with WBro Colin to the left and the newly Installed Commander, WBro Dave Purser, to the right.

The main busines of the day was, of course, to Install Bro David Purser as the fourth Worshipful Commander of the Lodge. This was another first for the Lodge as Bro David was the first lay Brother to be Installed as Commander of the Royal Ark Mariner Lodge.

The ceremony was carried out by WBro Tom Quinn and was up to his usual high standards. All present enjoyed the ceremony and a happy and enjoyable rounded the day off perfectly.

As ever, the day could not have been allowed to pass without a group picture being taken. Please click on the thumbnail below to see a full size image.
