I am delighted to be able to advise you that a Province Royal Ark Mariner Pin has been designed for the purpose of presentation to those Royal Ark Mariners Elevated between 1st October and the 30th September each year and who attend the Royal Ark Mariner Assembly in the December following the cut off date of 30th September that year.
The first presentation will take place on 7th December this year at the Assembly to be held in Corby. For this year only those current subscribing Royal Ark Mariners elevated between the 1st September 2017 and 30th September 2019 will be presented with their Province Royal Ark Mariner Pin, if they attend the Assembly and book their attendance with the Deputy Provincial Grand Secretary on the prescribed form.
Brother Royal Ark Mariners I look forward to welcoming as many of you who are able to attend the Assembly in Corby on 7th December when your partners are able to join you for lunch. This year whilst we are in the Temple the ladies are to receive a talk from W.Bro. Darren Coleman the Grand Lodge Charities Manager entitled 1868 The Mark Benevolent Fund Then and Now.
Yours sincerely and fraternally
R. W. Bro. Robert A Stokes
Provincial Grand Master
