Christmas is coming, but what is happening in the New Year?

Our PGM,  R.W. Bro Derek Thomas, sends Seasons Greetings to all members of the Province and his very best wishes for the Christmas and New Year period.

He is, however, concerned that following the many celebrations during the next few weeks, there will be little for the Brethren to look forward to in the early part of the New Year.

He has identified a few solutions.   Firstly there are many Mark meetings that are scheduled in the Province, and these can be seen on the web site calendar.

Secondly,  he has arranged for a special event to take place which everyone can look forward to.

His Provincial Team to organise the Annual Provincial Mark Dinner .

This promises to be once again,the highlight of the social calendar.  It is to be held at the Holiday Inn, The Coldra,  Newport on Saturday the 8th April. The times are 6-30pm for 7-00pm  and tickets are to be at the very reasonable price £35-00p.

There is a special room rate available for those who wish to stay the night.

Tickets will be available from WBro David Lewis (Portwall) and WBro Norman Davies (Beaufort) early in the New Year. 

It promises to be a great evening.

 

1st working meeting of The Mark Internet Lodge – Is it a Record?

The first meeting of the newest Mark Lodges in the province at the Castleton Centre saw a new experience for all that were there.                                              

FIVE new Advancees, and TWO Joiners!!

Is that a record?

But that wasn’t all.  Those Advanced had travelled especially from Rumania for the ceremony.  Our Master, Roy Morris, had suggested that they come over to Monmouthshire to the first meeting of TMIL  It certainly made it a very special day with the PGM in attendance and many of the Provincial team.31096403521_ceefc36ff6_o

A return  visit is expected during 2017 to add even more members, and plans are afoot to visit other parts of Europe during the coming years.
