I hope the last month has been all you hoped it to be.
May once again was busy and enjoyable, I finally got my latest man toy registered and with a Sunday drive both Maureen and I ended up Sunburnt, how did we do it 30 years ago. Maureen has laid the law down, no more drives with top down! So much for revisiting my youth.
The May meeting was an open night. Two non-members attended the meeting. WBro John O’Halloran explained why he joined freemasonry and what the organisation has meant to him, thanks John.
WBro Peter Donald gave a talk to the visitors on how the Lodge works, Peter used the analogy of the lodge being like a business and how our positions are similar to a private business e.g. the Master was the CEO, the Director of Ceremonies being the Forman instructs the workers (brethren), I think you get the idea, although I am still trying to work out what stuff we produce. Well done Peter.
RtWBro Harold Littler presented proposed changes to parts of our by- laws and placed them on the table to be voted on in the June meeting.
By now you all will know of Harold’s very ill state and so he will not be at Lodge for the June meeting to propose the vote, which means the motion lapses.
WBro Peter Donald will be re-introducing the proposed changes which will be voted on in the July meeting.
Our June meeting will also be the election of officers for the coming year and the passing of Bro Wayne Greenley.
