A really superb night was had by all at the St. John Corstorphine 788 Annual Installation Ceremony and many congratulations and all the best to Bro. John Wilson R.W.M. and his team of Office Bearers.
The ceremony was held at Lodge Dalhousie Bonnyrigg 720 and with 128 signing the attendance book - including 15 reigning Masters from the Province of Midlothian alone - it was virtually a 'sell out' event!! One might even be tempted to think that JW is somehow popular!!! (Just kidding of course John)
Congratulations also to Installing Masters Bro. Brian Kerley PM 720 and Bro. Martin McFarland PM 1338 - and indeed to all the Installing Team, the remainder of whom were all Past Masters of 788.
The were: Bro. Fraser Gaunt, Bro. Calum Stewart and Bro. Ned Kelly.
A big thanks to all the members and Honorary Members of Lodge Kirkliston Maitland who came along to support our friends at 788.
Indeed, as two of the artistes at the Festival of St. John, our R.W.M. Bro. Les Duff and Honorary Member Bro. Alan Banks both played active parts on the day.
Well done to both brethren and to all the artistes and stewards.
We look forward to meeting up again when the second half of the Masonic season kicks off in September.
