Lodge of Sorrow

Brethren our first regular meeting since February 2020 took place on 25th of October 2021. This meeting was to install our Worshipful Master who had agreed to continue for the ensuing year. Also to commemorate the loss of Worshipfull Brother John Clarke our Lodge treasurer for over 30 years. John was called to the Grand Lodge above in February 2021 and will be sadly missed by fremasonary in general, but by this Knowle Lodge 8001 in particular!

After his installation the Worshipful Master opened a 'Lodge of Sorrow'  to remember John. The role of living brethren was called by the secretary and assistant secretary gave apologies for those absent. The name of the deceased brother John was called out last and repeated three times. This was then reported to the WM that our, "Brother John Clarke had been summoned to the Grand Lodge above"!

The Eulogy was delivered by his son W.Bro. Clive Clarke who is also a member of Knowle 8001. The event overall was very poignant and will be remembered by all present and finaly, as a deceased member of the armed forces the 'Last Post' was played!

John will be missed by many but not forgotten!

Advantages of a virtual meeting: 

You can’t catch anything, you can fall asleep, you can have a drink, you can be as laid back as you like, you can look interested, you can look confused, you can scratch your head and when its finished don’t have to drive back home.

 

By the way its all captured on camera!
