Potential Formation of a Mark Lodge of Scottish Descent
(No, not a "Scottish Mark Lodge", that's something else altogether!"
Are you of Scottish descent? Have Scottish Ancestors, links or ties? If so, the PGM has a new venture for you.
He has asked W.Bro. Colin Innes to see if there is sufficient support from within the Province, or from those you know who live in or near Essex but are Mark Masters elsewhere, to support the Consecration of a new Mark Lodge. It is hoped that, once Consecrated, we could look to attract as many qualified Craft Master Masons as possible to join, or be Advanced into, the same.
At present we are only at the initial, scoping phase, and interest from potential Founders is sought. There are several thoughts on how to proceed but nothing is written in stone (Scone or otherwise), early thoughts are that the Lodge could meet twice a year on, say, 30th November (St. Andrew's Day) and 24th June (victory at Bannockburn). Everything else it up for grabs.
So, come on you Picts and Gaels, take up the cudgel thrown down by the PGM, contact Colin on firstname.lastname@example.org and see if we can bring this to fruition.
