Our meeting on 5th October was a special one for Bro. Jimmy Stewart P.M. when he was presented with his Jubilee Certificate marking his 50 years as a member of the craft and of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482.
The presentation was made by our Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master Bro. Thomas C. Smith who congratulated Bro. Jimmy on reaching this significant milestone and complimented him on the contribution he has made over his many years of service.
Born on February 20th 1942, Jimmy was initiated on October 15th 1966 and was Right Worshipful Master of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland 482 from 2007 - 2008.
Bro. Jimmy has always been a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the Lodge and, always ready to step in and help when needed, he is still a great ambassador for 482.
In making the presentation, Bro. Smith commented on his fund-raising activities and his title as the 'raffle king' and also his introduction of a 'whisky trail' to raise cash for the Kids' Christmas Party.
Bro. Jimmy is also active in other Masonic Orders an is presently a Commissioned Office Bearer in the Provincial Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Linlithgowshire.
In reply, Bro. Jimmy thanked the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Master for his kind words adding that he hoped to continue his contribution to 482 for many years to come.
This meeting also marked our annual P.G.L.M. visit and we were delighted to receive such a large deputation supporting the Provincial Grand Master.
