Demonstration of the Ceremony of Advancement
on the Zoom format presented by Bootle Mark Lodge No.478, Thursday 3rd June 2021
Well, I don’t think anyone quite knew what to expect from this evenings demonstration let me say from the outset it was a great success.
The Narrator for the evening was Tony Farrar who did a great job, the Provincial DC Arthur Robinson acting as the IPM, and the famous Dave Emmerson (retired Prov DC) took up the office of WM.
The main screen showed the floor of a Mark Lodge complete with mobile markers which moved about showing the different positions taken up by officers of the Lodge as the Ceremony progressed.
It was an ideal opportunity to refresh your memory in readiness for your Lodge returning to business hopefully in September, Govt regulations allowing that is.
It really was an excellent evening, our PGM RW Bro Keith Beardmore gave congratulations to all who taken part and made special mention to the organisers and the time taken rehearsing, he pointed out what a great learning tool it could be as it was being recorded.
I think those taking part should be listed here for their wonderful efforts and the time taken to produce what was virtually a flawless Ceremony.:
IPM. Arthur Robinson.   WM. David Emmerson. SW. Dave Seer. JW. Geoff Bury. Chaplin. Alan Fairhurst.
SD. Ray Pine. JD. Alan Fairhurst. MO. Terry Dickinson. SO. Dave Rigby.   JO. Gordon Glover.
RoM. Steve Walls.  IG. John Dean.  Tyler. Roy Hedges.  Narrator. Tony Farrar.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it won’t be too long now until we can once again have the pleasure of meeting in person and sharing in the enjoyment of our Mark meetings wherever they may be in this Great Province of ours.
I myself can’t wait to meet up with old friends and those I have yet to meet, Stay Safe and Stay Well.
