At the start of his first regular meeting as Right Worshipful Master, Bro. Gordon Yeoman was invested with his Honorary Grand Lodge Director of Ceremonies Jewel by his Dad, Bro. Sid Yeoman in the company of our Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Bro. Thomas C. Smith.
Then, in a very dignified ceremony presented by the Provincial Grand Lodge of Midlothian, our new Lodge regalia was consecrated by Provincial Grand Chaplain Bro. Martin McFarland.
And last, but by no means least, Bro. Gordon Yeoman R.W.M. conferred Honorary Membership of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland on Bro. Thomas C. Smith R.W.P.G.M. and Bro. Rab Smith R.W.M. of The Thistle Lodge West Calder 270.
We were joined on the night by impressive deputations from The Provincial Grand Lodge of Midlothian, Lodge Dalkeith Kilwinning No. 10 and The Thistle Lodge West Calder 270 and afterwards, all the brethren sat down to enjoy some informal harmony.
And, during the evening a gallon bottle of whisky generously donated by our Junior Deacon Bro. Greig Robinson raised £340 in a special raffle in aid of the P.G.L.M. Charity Appeal. The lucky winner was Bro. Alan Henderson S.M. Lodge Rosslyn St. Clair 606.
Bro. Sid Yeoman is a Past Master of the Celtic Lodge of Edinburgh & Leith No. 291 and an Honorary Member of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland.
