1 pointIt's surprising (or perhaps not) how many secretaries are unaware of this. Some years ago a severe winter weather situation arose while I was lodge secretary, so I said the proposed meeting would have to be abandoned. A very experienced brother told me to cancel it, which I knew was incorrect. I asked the ProvGSec to advise and that advice was to abandon. I only did this because the brother was adamant. I since learned that if 'cancellation' is noted in the minutes and those minutes become confirmed, then the lodge's fate is technically sealed. Undoubtedly a bit of backtracking could be done even after the minutes are confirmed, so I cannot see an erasure actually taking place on that ground alone these days. Provinces don't like to lose lodges!
