Kent Mark Stewards' Lodge September Meeting

At the September regular meeting of Kent Mark Stewards' Lodge No. 1691 held at Franklin Road in Gillingham the Provincial Demonstration Team lived up to their own high standards and delivered an outstanding Advancement ceremony.

The Advancing Master was W Bro. Jon Meyer who did a first class job and the lucky candidate was Bro. Chris Roberts, Deputy Provincial Grand Master of the Masonic Province of West Kent.

As you would expect an excellent afternoon and evening was had by all present. ​The PGM extended his personal thanks to not only ​Geoffrey Dearing for stepping in as Worshipful Master at very short notice, but also to the Provincial Demonstration Team including Jon Meyer as Advancing Master, Paul Butler as Senior Deacon, Tony Taylor as Preceptor.

He continued his thanks to Rob Downing, Lodge Secretary, for making all the arrangements for the meeting, Martyn Summers, Lodge DC, for his assistance throughout, Steve Rozier, Lodge Charity Steward, Ian Gallehawk, ProvGChStwd, and Brian Ward, AsstProvGChStwd, for their leadership and encouragement which led to the Lodge qualifying on the night for a 2020 Festival Bronze Award; a wonderful achievement for such a large Lodge.
