Mark Griffin WM, Internet Lodge 9659EC, 2008 - 2009

It has been a great honour and privilege to have served as Worshipful Master of this remarkable Lodge, and I thank the brethren for the opportunity to have done so.

I have done my best to further the aims stated when this Lodge was founded, and reiterated more recently in Larry Porter's year.

In October our meeting at Brockenhurst was to visit a brand new lodge building, a personal project of Alex Viner, a wonderful Mason who has contributed so much to this Lodge.

He was also responsible for drawing up a policy document for the International Development Scheme which has got off to a great start and has tremendous potential for the future, and he served as secretary to the Short Papers Competition, which was such a great success last year.

I would like to thank everyone who contributed time and energy to this Lodge, sometimes considerable time and energy, and I know that thanks to them, the Lodge will go on from strength to strength.
