2017 / 2018 RWM Bro. Brian Morton
As we approach the end of the first half of our 2018 meetings, I must pay credit to the Office Bearers and Brethren of 154 for the support which they have given the Lodge since the Installation. Our attendances have increased, and we now have newer members taking part in ritual work. We also have seen a rise in our members visiting other Lodges, and not just in our immediate vicinity.
The Lodge continues to attract new members, both initiates and affiliates, and we are pleased to speak informally with anyone who is interested in joining us. We are taking part in the Aberdeenshire’s “Doors Open Day” in September so, if you are in the area, why not drop in and meet us.
Another pleasing aspect of 2018 so far is that we have been in a position to offer candidates to receive their degrees at sister Lodges who have not had a candidate for themselves for some time. This cements the relationship between the Lodges and we reaped the rewards recently when we held one of our meetings in Kemnay when our own premises were unavailable.
I am pleased with the way things are going and trust that our progress will continue in the autumn.
Brian RG Morton, RWM 154.
