For the second November in a row, we raised a brother so that he could join the ladder of officers at our Installation meeting in December.
With December being our Installation, we first had the election of officers. Our SW, who would have been WM this year had it not been for a hectic work schedule last year, was duly chosen as Master Elect. Congratulations Paul.
Liam, who was our very first candidate whom we met via an enquiry on this site, was the brother being raised. He waited patiently for 14 months to be passed to the Second Degree, but had a very short wait of one month to be raised! He set the standard for the night by being word perfect with his answers, and all of the officers who took part in the ceremony were exemplary. Special mention should be made to VWBro Prof. Denny Wilson, who took on two pieces of work, one of which he only had 4 hours notice of. Liam will be taking up the position of Inner Guard next month.
Our Fraternal visitors on this occasion were St. John's Lodge No. 80, represented by their Worshipful Master, Fenwick Lodge No. 1359, represented by their Worshipful Master on his very last visit before coming out of the Chair, and Civic Lodge No. 5841, represented by their Worshipful Master on his very first visit since going in to the Chair.
Another enjoyable festive board followed.
Until the next time.
