On February 14 2013, the Erdemont Lodge of Royal Ark Mariners held its first meeting.
Needless to say, this was a proud and special moment for the Founders and particularly
the Primus Commander. W.Bro. (now RWBro.) Tom Quinn, who conducted an excellent ceremony
W.Bro. Tom felt it right to mark the occasion by supplying a cake adorned with the
Lodge crest. As can be seen from the picture below, it was a pity to cut the cake
and spoil the look but the desire to eat, coupled with the sparkling wine provided
by W.Bro. Tom, overcame any such finer feelings!
As soon as the meeting ended, the brethren repaired to the dining room, where the
wine flowed and the cake was cut. Such an event could not pass without a picture
being taken for posterity.
