A special Night for Don
It was a wonderful evening at Cerdic Lodge MMM on Wednesday 9th December when the Provincial Grand Master paid an official visit to the Lodge. He was accompanied by WB Sandy Kemlo the Assistant Provincial Grand Director of Ceremonies.
A most interesting paper on the history of Cerdic Lodge was presented by WB Bob Stacey who gave an insight to the Founder Members and development of the Lodge over the last 100 years of uninterruptible service to the Mark Degree that this Lodge had contributed in the Town of Chard which is situated at the boundary of Somerset, Dorset and Devon. It was interesting to note that Brethren from Mark Lodge in both Devon and Dorset had formed a close association with Cerdic Lodge over many years having frequent visitors to meetings and exchanging fraternal visits on a regular basis.
WB Don Fisher also presented an explanation of the Mark Tracing Board in an exemplary fashion in addition to playing the Organ throughout the evening. At the completion of the meeting before the Lodge was closed the Provincial Grand Master RWB David Nelson surprised WB Don Fisher by presenting him with the Provincial Grand Masters Certificate of Merit for distinguished service to the Mark and Royal Ark Mariners Degree, he was also given a solid silver Mark Token to commemorate the presentation of the award.
