Mark Master Degree and Mother’s Day BBQ

On Mother’s Day weekend we celebrated with a Mark Degree in the morning and a Mother’s Day Barbeque in the afternoon.

The day began at the USO where Han Yang was to put on it’s first Mark Degree in over 10 years.

The brethren gather at the USO in anticipation of the Mark Degree.

We were all very keen to put the Mark on, as several brothers had yet to receive that degree.

The room we used is really more of a classroom/conference room,
but being in Korea we usually have to make due with what we have.

There were a few hiccups here and there, but we managed to get 9 brothers marked.

The newly marked brethren pose with the axe and keystone. Poor Bro Kev.

After the Mark Degree we celebrated Bro Ralph’s 69th birthday (which makes him 70 in Korean!).

Bro. Ralph was also voted into Lodge Han Yang as an honorary member.

Newly made member Bro. Ralph cuts some birthday cake for the brethren.

After finishing up at the USO, we headed over to Green Apartments where the Mother’s Day Barbeque was held.

Several of the brethren enjoy some great food at the barbeque.

The barbeque was organized by Bro Dennis, who was more than happy to man the grill.

Bro Dennis masterfully grills up some burgers with his working tool.

This was Bro Danilo’s last day in Korea, so he was presented with a nice looking flask with the square and compass on it. And yes, it was fully charged.

RWM Pete looks on with envy as Bro Dennis presents Bro Danilo with his flask.

Afterwards everyone helped themselves to some more cake.

Another cake? Good work. Square work.

Another fine event pulled off by all of the hardworking brethren involved. Well done everyone.
