Last Week

Our big
event this week was the Installation of our Right Worshipful Master and
the office bearers. As important was a chance to reflect and celebrate
some of the many achievements of our lodge in the past year as a stepping off
point for the year ahead of us. We were joined in our formal harmony by
two gentlemen who are in the process of joining the lodge and they were left
‘wide-eyed’ by the warm and friendly nature of our gathering.

were particularly grateful to see so many visiting Brethren from the Province
of Midlothian and much further afield (even Finland) at our installation. Some photos of our
wonderful night made it to a Brother from W.L. L’Angle Nord-Est
(North-East Angle) n° 682, Lyon who recently visited us. And it sparked
fond memories of his first visit and hope to return soon. It
goes to show just how important visiting other lodges really is and this is a
useful chance to promote again the Provincial Grand Lodge of Midlothian
