Centenary update

Submitted by admin on 08/05/2020 - 10:52

It has been agreed with the Grand Lodge of Scotland that our Centenary celebrations, due to go ahead on Saturday 13th June, be rescheduled for Saturday 7th November 2020.

The rededication ceremony will go ahead as planned but it will instead be followed with a less formal Harmony in the bar in Maxwellton Rd, rather than the planned formal meal in Ferguslie BC.

This may be subject to change again given the current lockdown that is still being imposed.

Please note that The Grand Lodge of Scotland have now issued a statement advising all Provinces, Districts and Lodges to suspend all masonic activity forthwith until further notice as a result of recent government advice.

Therefore, unfortunately we will be having no further meetings until directed otherwise.

The Right Worshipful Master, Bro Thomas Love had the pleasure of presenting two Past Masters of the Lodge with Jewels to mark 50 years in the Craft each.

Bro John Beith PM and Bro William Stevenson PM were in the Chair in 1977 and 1978 respectively and have served the Lodge well since they became members all those years ago. Bro Stevenson will be due his 60th Jewel and diploma soon as he was a bit late in receiving his 50th, but better late than never as they say.

I would like to thank all the Brethren who attended our Annual Installation on Friday 11th October, more particularly the visiting brethren including the Brethren from Lodge St.Clement No.688 in Aberdeen who travelled some distance in order to attend.

I was overwhelmed with the attendance on the evening and hope to visit as many of the Lodges represented as I can during my year as Master.

Celebrating 25 years of friendship

Submitted by admin on 08/05/2019 - 06:51

Lodge Craigielea were up in Aberdeen last weekend to celebrate 25 years of friendship with Lodge St. Clement 688 on Saturday 4th May.

A good number of brethren travelled up to Aberdeen as they have been doing yearly since a friendship was struck between the two lodges, all those years ago.

On the day, the Right Worshipful Master Bro WJ Love headed a deputation into Lodge St Clement to confer an exemplification of a Fellow Craft degree and a very fine harmony was enjoyed by all later in the evening.
