Well, for most Lodges in the Province, the second half of the masonic season is now underway. We've had our first two meetings and the next - on Wednesday 7th October - is our Provincial visit and is a 7pm tyle.
Sorry to say our Right Worshipful Master Bro. Glen Brown is still under the weather and, hopefully, he'll be well enough to take the helm again in October. Look forward to seeing you again soon R.W.M.
Our new internal storage area is now fully up and running and that makes things much easier when setting up and taking down the Temple. We still have to organise some form of shelving for all our artefacts and that's certainly near the top of our agenda.
We've also added two new dividers into the setup, changed the seating a bit, moved the photographs and Past Master boards and - for now anyway - move the secretary and treasurer's table close to the North East Corner.
Coming up soon is our 'Stars In Your Eyes' fund raising event in aid of Kirkliston and South Queensferry FC.
Organised by our I.P.M. Bro. Les Duff, it's a complete sell out with all the tickets sold. It's sure to be a good night.
Also coming up is our Annual Dinner Dance, once more in association with our friends from Lodge St. John Corstorphine 788. Date is Friday 20th November and the venue is Kirkliston Bowling Club. Tickets are £20 each and available from Bro. Gordon Yeoman P.M.
Finally - and it's still a wee bit away - is our 2nd Degree on Wednesday 16th December. This degree will be worked by Honorary Members of the Lodge with Bro. Alan Banks R.W.M. of Lodge Kirknewton & Ratho No. 85 in the Chair.
