Lord Harris Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners - Banner Dedication 12 September 2014

12 September 2014 was a milestone for Lord Harris Ark and Mark Lodges. The Mark Lodge has dedicated its banner some time ago, after which the project began to obtain a banner for the Ark Lodge.

Much care and thought went into the design of the banner, with different versions being circulated for approval. Once the project received the go ahead, Janet wasted no time in putting together a Banner of stunning quality. It was also very fitting that the Provincial Grand Master, RW Bro Archie Torrance, should dedicate the Banner in his mother Ark Lodge. As he unveiled the Banner for the first time, the Lodge fell silent as everyone present took in the beauty of the design and the craft work.

To mark the occasion, the Dedicating Team posed for a picture for posterity. After the meeting, the members of the Lodge also gathered around the banner for a picture. WBro Colin Pascoe, the remaining Founder of the Lodge, can be seen standing immediately to the right of the Banner. This was also an Installation picture and the Lodge congratulates WBro Lloyd Foster, seated third from right in the front row, on becoming Commander of the Lodge.
