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.

Brother Donnie sadly passed to the Grand Lodge above on Wednesday 30th January 2019.

Donnie had been unwell for a while but it still came as a shock to everyone on hearing the sad news.

He will be sorely missed by everyone at Lodge Craigielea and all who knew him and many brethren from within and without the Province have been in touch to pass on thier condolences.

Special and historic evening

Submitted by admin on 09/12/2018 - 12:36

The regular meeting held on the Monday 26th November 2018 was a special and somewhat historic evening for the Lodge given that the latest candidate on that occasion is the son and grandson of two active members and Past Masters of the Lodge, Bro WJ McCormack junior and senior. 

Thereby resulting in 3 generations of the same family being active members of the Lodge at the same time.

I would like to thank all the Brethren who attended our Annual Installation on Friday 12th October, particularly 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.

Special thank you to my Installing Masters: Bro. John SL Morrison Jnr PM and Bro.Gordon McGill PM for all their hard work and for making the evening such a memorable one for me.

I would also like to wish the new R.W.M Bro. Billy Love and his office bearers all the best for the coming session.
