WBro. Barry Newman (PGS, Mark) became a joining member of Salisbury Mark Lodge No. 52 when its

Twinning Lodge, Berri Mark Lodge No. 25, handed in its Warrant in December 2012. 

 

WBro. Barry Newman lives at Renmark and is unable to attend his Mark Lodge.

 

With this in mind, arrangements were made so WBro. Barry Newman would be presented with his 50 year veterans jewel in open lodge. Salisbury Mark Lodge No. 52 brethren where not overly keen with the idea of “just posting” it to him.

 

WBro. Robert McDonald, current Worshipful Master of Salisbury Lodge No. 126 and also a member of Salisbury Mark Lodge No. 52 had planned to attend the Installation meetings in the Riverland so he was the proud bearer of this precious jewel.

 

At the Installation meeting of Renmark Lodge No. 55 on Thursday 17th July 2014, and prior to the retirement of Grand Lodge, VWBro. Brian Marks (Grand Master Overseer of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons of SA & NT) made a presentation on behalf of Salisbury Mark Lodge No. 52 to WBro. Barry Newman of his Mark 50 year veterans jewel. VWBro. Brian Marks is also a joining member of Salisbury Mark Lodge No. 52. and being a current Grand Mark Officer was honoured to conduct the presentation.
