Well, it's just over a year since we moved back to our spiritual home in Kirkliston and what a difference these 12 month have made.
Our new Right Worshipful Master, Bro. Les Duff P.M. was well and truly installed by 482 Past Masters Bro. Gordon Yeoman and Bro. David Swan and Bro. Les and his team of Office Bearers are settling in well to their new posts.
The Past Master boards and most of the Lodge photographs are now on display during our meetings and this is another major step forward.
Many visitors comment on how well the Lodge looks and this is something we really appreciate, helping to make all the hard work and effort really worth while.
After a long time without attracting new candidates, there has also been a dramatic increase in fortune.
Bro. Donald Small was raised in January and since then we've had three further applications for Initiation.
Two of the three enquiry meetings have taken place and the third will be held this Monday, March 4th.
And we hear on the grapevine that yet another application could be in the pipeline!!
This coming Wednesday, March 6th, will see an exemplification of the EA Degree and, after that, 'live' degrees will be the order of the day!! You can check our degrees up to the end of the season on our diary page.
Ostrea Lodge Visit
Looking forward to the end of March, we look forward to our Bi-Annual visit by our friends from South of the Border.
We'll be holding a special meeting for the Ostrea Lodge Brethren on Saturday March 23rd. This will be a 2nd Degree with a 4pm tyle. And the night before, we'll all be making our traditional visit to Lodge Kirknewton & Ratho No. 85.
It's all happening!!!
