Honours well Deserved
March was a very good month for the Lodge and in particular two well and worthy brethren.
Bro Dick Ralston was given Honorary membership at Lodge Torphichen Kilwinning No13 on Tuesday 5th March for his untiring support and dedication to the lodge. Bro Paul Heron of Lodge Lord Bruce was also honored on this occasion.
Then on Thursday 21st March, at our Provincial Visitation, our RWPGM Bro Bob Scott presented PM Bro Jim Robertson with his Honorary Grand Almoners diploma. This was a very poignant time for Jim as our RWPGM gave a very detailed and funny masonic history with special references to the Robertson family.
At this time I would like to congratulate both brethren on honors well deserved.
As we approach our recess we still have a few degrees to do and our first meeting in April (4th) will be on a Live candidate. We then welcome Lodge Lord Bruce on the 18th to confer an EA degree and we will be finishing up the month on the 25th with a degree to Lodge St John Crofthead No374.
During the recess we will also be working in the background for our Dramatic degree on October 12th.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a peacefull recess, but to also remind the brethren to constantly check your emails for any notifications which the Bro Secretary may send.

Saturday 16th February saw our wheelie bin placed against the front door and set alight.
This happened at 4am. The alarm was raised some 2hrs later and the fire brigade successfully extinguished the fire with only damage to the firedoor. We are asking the stoneyburn community to be vigilant and should anybody hear anything regarding the arson attack, please call Livingston CID (Craig Waddell) on 01506 445670
