Forty-five Mark Masons attended the Masonic Hall in Workington on a very warm evening to witness the installation of WBro. Douglas Graham Sanderson, PGSD, APGM as Worshipful Master by WBro. Alan Nairn, PPGJW. In attendance was Right Worshipful Brother Keith Hodgson, PGM along with his newly appointed Provincial team.
WBro. Nairn carried out a faultless installation followed by WBro Sanderson installing his officers for the ensuing year in a competent and dignified manner. The lodge also welcomed five new joining members; WBro. C. Gabbot, ProvMO, WBro B. Holcroft, PPGIoW, WBro. A. E. Mitchinson, PPGSD, WBro. S. Pritchard, PPGSW and W. Bro. C. Thomason. As is the custom of the lodge the newly installed Master delivered the annual lecture, the subject this year was Roslyn Chapel. During the address by RWBro K Hodgson he formally reappointed WBro. D. G. Sanderson as APGM, as he was unable to attend the annual provincial meeting due to illness, and wished him well for the ensuing year. Following the closing of the lodge a four course festive board was enjoyed.
