Consecrated 29th September 2018
W Bro Alun Morton PPrGSD writes; what an inaugural year this has been for the Scouts Cymru Lodge of Mark Master Masons No.1995, it began with consecration on 29th September 2018. With over eighty founders, dignitaries, visitors and consecrating officers in attendance what a Regal occasion it was. With the Caerphilly Masonic Temple suitably adorned for the occasion, the Consecrating Team in place. Candidates were Advanced in April and in June and there are several candidates in waiting for next year’s Worshipful Master and his team, so all bodes well for the future.

THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON
Forgetful Brother A brother was having a little trouble remembering his ritual charges, so he went to see his doctor for a check-up. The brother told the doctor that he seemed to be getting rather forgetful. “I can never remember where I parked the car, or where I left my glasses. I forget everyone’s birthdays, whether I’ve turned off the gas or what night I have to go to Lodge. But worst of all, I can’t remember the ritual charges that I have been delivering for years. So I really need your help, Doc. What can I do?” The doctor thought for a moment, then answered, “Pay me in advance.”

A great meeting of The Scout Lodge of Mark Master Masons No. 1907 in Winslow, Bucks. We elected Trevor Brearley to be our next Master and heard about Scouting in Bucks.

Available to members only.
