It was only just over a year ago that Kent Installed Mark Masterâs (KIMM) âÂ Lodge No.999 celebrated its 75th anniversary to a packed house at WrothamÂ Masonic Centre. And only a year ago, W. Bro. Nigel Cash was installed in the Chair of Adoniram at The Maidstone Masonic Centre, Tovil; who would haveÂ guessed what 2020 was to bring!
Without the ability to meet in person during the CovidÂ Pandemic, many Lodges have got together on Zoom or other virtual media toÂ socialise, support and maintain our special fellowship and this yearâsÂ Installation Meeting of KIMM on Saturday November 21st took the form a Virtual Business MeetingÂ attended by 56 members.
The letters of permission and dispensation were read by the Provincial GrandÂ Secretary.Â The meeting was alsoÂ attended by the Provincial Grand Master, R.W. Bro. Archie Torrance, whoÂ proposed the motion that, due to the limitations of the present climate, W. Bro. Cash continue asÂ Worshipful Master for the ensuing year together with all of his Officers.
The motionÂ wasÂ unanimouslyÂ passed and W. Bro. Nigel thanked everyone present for their support and the continued opportunity to represent the Lodge.
The Prov.G.M. went on to express his gratitude the Lodge for its recruitment and retentionÂ successes, as fourteen joining and re-joiningÂ members were successfully balloted for. He also expressed how pleased heÂ was that the welfare of our members and communities had remainedÂ uppermost in the Brethrenâs minds and with the aid of many Lodges and the
Kent Mark Benevolent Fund was able to help so many in need.
If you are an Installed or Past Master and have yet toÂ join KIMM, a warmÂ welcome awaits you in this most happy and prestigious Lodge.
